"Late for My Funeral"
Mike Stinson
Hell and Half of Georgia (2013)

Intro:

|Am      |G   Am  | x4

Verse 1:
Am                      Dm           Am 
Late for my funeral the first day of June
G                                   Am 
Someone should have known I'd never get there by noon
     Am                       C           Dm 
I was late for my chariot and late for my wings
  E
I didn't even get to hear the fat lady sing
     Am                    Dm           Am
I was late for my funeral, late for the priest
          G                        Am
I was the last one to find out that  I was deceased
     Am                        C            Dm
I was late for the undertaker, late for the hearse
E
Late to punch my ticket, couldn't get reimbursed
      Am               C    Dm
I was too late for some Hadacol
      Dm                G   Am
I was too late for some Demerol
          Am                C   Dm
And I was too late for some Geritol
     E
I was late for my funeral

|Am      |G   Am  | x2

Verse 2:
Am                 Dm        Am
Late to rise, I was late for work
           G                           Am
First they made me the boss, then they made me a clerk
          Am                       C             Dm
And then I cashed my check, but it didn't make a dent
      E
I went looking for outside work to pay the rent
         Am                 Dm           Am
But I was late for the job, late for the jig
          G                               Am
They were passing liquid courage, and so I had me a swig
         Am                           C       Dm
And I was late for the pickup, 'cause I hit a snag
         E
When the alarm bell rang, they left me holding the bag
      Am          C               Dm
I was too late, I was against the law
          Dm               G         Am
And I was too late, for my telephone call
          Am               C     Dm
Then I was too late, for my baby doll
       E
Now I'm late for my funeral

Solo:
|Am      |Dm  Am  |G      |Am     |
|Am      |C   Dm  |E      |E      |
|Am      |Dm  Am  |G      |Am     |
|Am      |C   Dm  |E      |E      |

Verse 3:
Am                       Dm           Am
Late for the jury, I was late for the judge
        G                         Am
By the time I took my seat they already had a grudge
         Am                           C          Dm
And I was late for my sentence, so he doubled my time  
                 E
Now being late for a nickel is gonna cost me a dime
     Am                        Dm            Am
I was late for the paddy wagon, late for the jail
  G                             Am
I woulda bought a suit but I was late for the sale
          Am                  C            Dm
Then I was late for the yard, late for the hole
       E
Now I'm late for a miracle to save my soul
        Am         C      Dm
I was too late, for Witchita
      Dm           G    Am
I was too late, for Omaha
          Am               C      Dm
And I was too late, for the Chippewa 
     E
I was late for my funeral

|Am      |G   Am  | x2

Verse 4:
Am                     Dm            Am
Late for the fare I was late for the feast
         G                                Am
I was the last one to see they were gonna feed me to the beast
     Am                  C         Dm
I was late for breakfast, late for lunch
            E
I think I'm gon' be late for supper, but it's just a hunch
     Am                   Dm         Am
I was late for my funeral, first of June
    G                          Am
And she was in the kitchen and I was on the moon
     Am                   C            Dm
I was late for the ocean, late for the sky
            E
Didn't even get to see the fireworks on the fourth of July

|Am      |C   Dm  |Dm     |G  Am   |
|Am      |C   Dm  |E      |E       |
