Lyrics of Poorman’s Grave – Eraserheads

I.

I know a man who had nothing

He was a poor man all his life

He lived in a shack by the roadside

With starving kids and a loving wife

II.

He went to church every Sunday

He prays from morning until night, he said

Good Lord, why have you forsaken me

When everything I did I thought was right

Refrain:

Now my Life is coming to an end

There’s only one thing I’m wishing for

All my days I have never sinned

So I hope you wont ignore

What I’m asking for…

Chorus I:

Oh honey when I die

Dress me up in a coat and tie

Give my feet a pair of shoes

That I haven’t wore in a long time

Put me in a golden box

Not a cross on a pile of rocks

Bury me where the grass is green

And the gates are shining…

Chorus II:

Oh honey when I die

Give me a bed of roses

Where I could lie

I’m gonna use up all the money that I saved

‘Coz I dont wanna lie in a poor man’s grave…

III.

I know a man who had nothing

He dreamed of satin sheets all his life

He lived and worked like a dog

Licking every boot he sees just to survive

IV.

He comes home drunk every night

Wakes up the kids and talks to his wife, he said

Honey you have been so good to me

I only wish we had a better life

Refrain II:

And now my lifes coming to an end

There’s only one thing I’m wishing for

All my days I have lived in shame

So I hope you wont ignore

Just what I’m asking for…

Chorus I:

Oh honey when I die

Dress me up in a coat and tie

Give my feet a pair of shoes

That I haven’t wore in a long time

Put me in a golden box

Not a cross on a pile of rocks

Bury me where the grass is green

And the gates are shining…

Chorus III:

Oh honey when I die

Give me a bed of roses

Where I could lie

I’m gonna use up all the money that I saved

‘Coz I dont wanna lie in a poor man’s…

Oh honey when I die

Give me a bed of roses

Where I could lie

I’m gonna use up all the money that I saved

‘Coz I dont wanna lie in a poor man’s grave…
