Great song by my friend Tom Peterson.

lyrics

IF I DIE TOMORROW

If I die tomorrow I don't want my friends to cry
Just go on down to Jigg's bar and drink that tight-wad dry
Cause there's one thing for certain as that sun up in the sky
They'll be one less poor drunken mess than the day before I day

If I die in the jailhouse, bury me where I'll be free
If I die in Iowa take me back to Tennessee
If I die inebriated bury me on the rocks
If I fall dead when I'm in the red, won't ya lay me beneath Fort Knox

Tell them old dope dealers to take a whiff on me
One thing's for certain, they'll be hurtin now economically
Just get you a bottle of Bush Mills whiskey and scatter it over me
Cause I here tell both heaven and hell are dry as dry can be

CHORUS

If I die tomorrow I don't want no big brass band
don't want no choir in purple robes singing ‘bout the promised land
But I hope it's cold and gloomy and it freezes when it rains
And hire you a band of gypsys to come and dance on my remains

If I die tomorrow and return to mother earth
I don't want no accountants arguin over my net worth
Just dig down in your pocket and put a penny on each eye
And I'll be two cents richer than the day before I die

`CHORUS

If I die tomorrow tell my tailor not to call
Cause my idea of finery is my Duck Head overalls
Tell that preacher to save his service that priest to keep his mass
And tell my old pals George and Dick to stick it right up your...

If I die tomorrow I don't want my friends to cry
Just go on down to Jiggs bar and drink that bastard dry
Cause there's one thing for certain as that sun up in the sky
They'll be one mess poor drunken mess than the day before I die
They'll be one less fool in the baseball pool and here's mud right in your eye.
