Jerry Lee Lewis - Don't Put No Headstone On My Grave Lyrics




Don't put no headstone on my grave,
All my life I've been a slave,
Want the whole wide world to know,
That I'm the man that loved you so
Mama, mama, don't you cry,
I'm gonna meet you in the by and by, in the sweet by and by
Tell papa I'm comin' home, comin' on home,
God, it can't be very long
Don't put no headstone on my grave,
All my life I've been a slave,
Want the whole wide world to know,
That I'm the stud that loved you so
M,m,m,m,m,m mama don't you cry,
Lord, I'm gonna meet you in the by and by, in the sweet by and by
Tell papa I'm coming home,
Oh God, it can't be very long
Don't put no headstone on my grave,
Whoooh! All my life I've been a slave, motherhumpin' slave
And you know something? I want the world to know,
That I'm the stud that loved that woman so
Mama, mama don't you cry, mama, don't cry,
I'm gonna meet you in the by and by, in the sweet by and by
Tell papa, I'm coming home, Oh Lord,
You know, it can't be very long
(One more time now)
Don't put a headstone on my grave
All my life I've been a slave,
Want the whole wide world to know,
That I'm the man,
That loved,
That loved,
Don't put no headstone on my grave,
All my life I've been a slave, whoooh!
I want the whole wide world to know,
That I'm the stud that loved you so
Ma-ma-ma-ma mama, don't you cry, whooh! Don't cry!
I'm-a-gonna meet you in the by and by, in the sweet by and by,
Tell papa I'm coming home, coming on home...
...And you know something ladies?
Oh, God, it can't be very long

    Jerry Lee Lewis belongs on the "Mount Rushmore" of Rock and Roll. And I don't want to hear no fucking argument about it. The man is a living legend and a pioneer of Rock and Roll music.

    Marvin Dockery

    Behind the great singing hidden away is a man with a lot of love for
    His fellow man. He has give a lot of money over the years to help others. I met him in 1969 at a little county airport in eastern kentucky. He was on his way to play that night in willianson, west virginia. A woman was traveling with him, a mrs mullins from knoxville, tennessee.
    I was impressed with the man then, and i still am.

    David Jose

    ...he may be a legend, but you are foul and vile. I’m for JLL and we pity you.

  20. Buffa Lee

    king of all kingS

  21. Mookie Spindlehurst

    This set was a "smasharoo!" Too bad JLL and Elvis didn't get together for some live jam sessions dueting on this type of material.

  22. Eric Manderbach

    So better than Elvis

  23. NO FILTER

    OTHER THAN ELVIS THIS WAS MY GRANDMOTHERS FAVORITE ARTIST. MY GRANDMA RAISED ME. SHE HAD A HEART ATTACK & WAS IN THE HOSPITAL. MY BOYFRIEND & I HAD TICKETS TO JERRY LEES CONCERT THE NIGHT OF THE LAST TIME I SAW MY GRANDMA ALIVE IN THE HOSPITAL. I HAD A FEELING SHE'D NEVER COME HOME. SHE ASKED ME TO GET HIS AUTOGRAPH BUT I COULDN'T GET IT. I'M ASHAMED TO SAY I WAS GOING TO HAVE SOMEONE SIGN HIS NAME & GIVE IT TO HER. I'VE NEVER TOLD ANYONE THIS. I NEVER GOT THAT CHANCE. SHE WAS GONE. THIS IS THE 1ST TIME I'VE LISTENED TO HIS MUSIC SINCE SHE PASSED IN THE 80'S. NOT BEEN ABLE TO. R.I.P GRANDMA. THIS ONE'S FOR YOU. I MISS YOU SO MUCH. HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON. YOU'RE ALWAYS ON MY MIND.

    NO FILTER

    @Mookie Spindlehurst THANK U. I REALLY WOULD LIKE TO THINK SO. JUST WISH I'D HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SEE HER AGAIN BEFORE SHE PASSED TO HAVE GIVEN IT TO HER.

    Mookie Spindlehurst

    Jerry Lee Lewis was underrated in rock and country. He has much more talent than many more famous or successful artist!

    sleeping gorilla

    I love Rockabilly and Jerry Lee Lewis. Let's be honest that he's a deviant wierdo that derailed his own career.

    sleeping gorilla

    @Todd Phipps He's 90, so no. He's not a hero, and not underrated. I can enjoy his music and am happy to forget why he was blacklisted for so many years. His contributions will outlive his demons and I'm fine with that.

    RJ 1999

    @sleeping gorilla he's 83

    Casey Byrd
