Recorded by Johnny Paycheck
Written by John Moffat
[G]Don’t bury [D7]me till I’m [G]ready
Don’t tell me that I’m gonna be [D7]missed
Don’t [C]wave me goodbye son I’ll [G]spit in your eye
Cause I [D7]ain’t going out like [G]this
I’ve been forty [D7]years in a [G]factory
And I’ve lived all my life in a little old [D7]shack
I [C]gave up my youth to the [G]boss man
But as far as I know he ain’t never give nothing [D7]back
Now they [G]tell me that I’m [D7]too old to [G]cut it
That I oughta go and rest a [D7]spell
They [C]say that I’ll be dead any [G]day now
But [D7]they don’t know this old boy too [G]well
Repeat #1 Cause don’t€¦
You know ain’t I never had n[D7]o easy oc[G]cupation
Hard work’s all that I ever [D7]knew
It’s a [C]fact I ain’t got a thing now to [G]show for it
All the [D7]misery that life has put me [G]through
Yeah but a voice down deep in my [D7]guts keeps on [G]screaming
John you been going too long now to [D7]stop
I’ve [C]spent my whole life down on the [G]bottom
But by the [D7]grace of God I’m gonna go out on the [G]top
Yeah don’t bury [D7]me till I’m [G]ready
Don’t tell me that I’m gonna be [D7]missed
Don’t [C]wave me goodbye son I’ll [G]spit in your eye
And I [D7]ain’t going out like [G]this
I ain’t gonna let yo[D7]u bury me till I[G]€™m ready
Don’t tell me that I’m gonna be [D7]missed
Don’t [C]wave me goodbye son I’ll [G]spit in your eye
And I [D7]ain’t going out like [G]this
I ain’t gonna let yo[D7]u bury me till I[G]€™m ready
I ain’t gonna list the things that I won[D7]€™t do
Might as [C]well get it straight I'[G]m still in good shape
Until I’m gone you ca[D7]n bet I’m gonna do wha[G]t I want to[/chordpress]

Who is Johnny Paycheck?
– Johnny Paycheck (born Donald Eugene Lytle May 31, 1938 – February 19, 2003) was an American country music singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and Grand Ole Opry member notable for recording the David Allan Coe song “Take This Job and Shove It”. He achieved his greatest success in the 1970s as a force in country music’s “outlaw movement” popularized by artists Hank Williams Jr., Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Billy Joe Shaver, and Merle Haggard. In the 1980s, his music career slowed due to drug, alcohol and legal problems. He served a prison sentence in the early 1990s and his declining health effectively ended his career in early 2000. In 1980, Paycheck appeared on the PBS music program Austin City Limits (season 5).
