Don't put no headstone on my grave
All my life, I've been a slave
Want the whole wide world to know
Here that I'm the man that loved you 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 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
I want the whole wide world to know
Here that I'm the man that loved, that loved

I don't put a headstone on my grave
All my life I've been a slave
Want the whole wide world to know
Here that I'm the man that loved you so

Mama, don't you cry, 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, coming on home
And you know something ladies?
Oh, God, it can't be very long

But don't put no headstone on my grave
I want that money much, speaking darling
