Jukebox on My Grave

When I'm gone...on my judgment day
Would you please put a jukebox on my grave
I don't need no headstone, no cold tears
Just a jukebox to say a 'music man lays here'

All my friends will drop on by
And drop a quarter down and hear Robert Johnson cry
A flood of memories coming wave by wave
Carried by the voice in the jukebox on my grave
Carried by the voice in the jukebox on my grave

Some Hank Williams, some George Jones
Some Dylan...Beatles...a few from the RollingStones
Joni Mitchell, Marvin Gaye
Johnny Cash, who's risen from the ashes on my grave
That's Johnny Cash singing 'ring of fire' on my grave

When I'm gone, on my judgment day
Put a quarter in the jukebox on my grave
I got no headstone claiming I was brave
Just a jukebox singing the songs upon my grave
Just a jukebox singing the songs upon my grave
