HUNDRED DOLLAR FUNERAL (Vic McAlpin) Porter Wagoner - 1967 Norma Jean - 1972 With one nickel in his pocket and a pack of cigarettes There were no tears of sorrow, no tears of regret In a plain wooden casket the county laid him away Just a hundred dollar funeral with no loved ones to pray There must be a mother who loved him somewhere Perhaps she had gone home and was waiting up there Where there's no disappointments around God's great throne No hundred dollar funerals, unloved and unknown No pretty marble headstone, not one friend came He was lowered by four strangers that didn't know his name A loser on this earth, a debt so many must pay Just a hundred dollar funeral with no loved ones to pray There must be a mother who loved him somewhere Perhaps she had gone home and was waiting up there Where there's no disappointments around God's great throne No hundred dollar funerals, unloved and unknown No hundred dollar funerals, unloved and unknown (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2011)
