[Verse 1]
                            D        A
A young boy walked into the Somerset pool room
                          D         A
All us ole boys were just standing around
    D                                  A
The kid said 'scuse me, do you know my daddy?
                             E            A
He's dead and he's lying out there in the ground

[Verse 2]
   D                                  A
We told him that we surely knew Harry Walker
D                         A              E
Known him for years was a good friend of ours
    D                                 A
The boy said well I want to get him a headstone
                       E               A
I already went out and picked him some flowers

[Verse 3]
                          D             A
We looked at each other - not having no money
                              D             A
We ventured to ask, well, how much would it cost
D                                    A
Two hundred dollars he said with his chest out
                           E         A
And twenty more dollars to have it embossed

[Verse 4]
   D                                     A
He said you know daddy was real close to Jesus
   D                        A       E
He prayed every day long as I can recall
    D                                     A
But now I'm afraid when the Lord comes to get him
                        E7          A
He might not be able to find him at all

[Verse 5]
              D           A
Now me and my pals at the Somerset pool room
                             D               A
Ain't famous for nothing but standing around broke
    D                                  A
But something about the sad teary eyed youngster
                                 E            A
Made us think that something was stuck in our throats

[Verse 6]
   D                                     A
So we got some moonshine and stole a few chickens
   D                            A         E
We passed round the word that a party was on
   D                                   A
We found some musicians and wood for a bonfire
                                  E           A
And we bush-hogged a place out on Harry's old farm

[Verse 7]
                          D            A
We fixed up a bucket with harry's name on it
                            D          A
We passed it around 'til it nearly was filled
    D                                A
Two hundred and forty-six dollars collected
                          E           A
More than enough there to pay off the bill

[Verse 8]
  D                                A
A couple weeks later we sat in the pool room
    D                       A             E
And someone suggested since two weeks had passed
   D                                    A
Go out to the graveyard and look at the headstone
                               E             A
And see what the young man had done with our cash

[Verse 9]
     D                                   A
Now, there on the hillside in shiny grey marble
  D                          A          E
A real pretty headstone that stated the fact
    D                                        A
All chiseled in stone there was written this message
                           E                A
Ny name's Harry Walker and here's where I'm at
