The Caretaker by Johnny Cash Ukulele Chords

Recorded 3/12/59 Nashville, TN
Songs of Our Soil (1959)

KEY: Bb / CAPO: 1 / PLAY: A

I live in the cemetery
Oh Caretaker they call me
In the winter time I rake the leaves
And in the summer I cut the weeds

When a funeral comes the people cry and pray
They bury their dead then they all go away
But thru their grief I still can see
Their hate and greed and jealousy
So here I work and I somehow hide

And each night when I rest my head
I’m contented as the peaceful dead

But who’s gonna cry when old John dies
Who’s gonna cry when old John dies

Once I was a young man
Dashing with the girls
Now no one wants an old man
I lost my handsome curls

But I wanna say when my time comes
Lay me facing the rising sun
Put me in a corner where I buried my pop
Tell the preacher to pray and cover me up
Don’t lay flowers where my head should be
Maybe God will let some grow from me
And all the little childern that I loved like my own
Will they be sorry that old John’s gone

Who’s gonna cry when old John dies
Who’s gonna cry when old John dies
