Your Good Man is Gone-Freddie Spruell
Spruell and Carl Martin, 12 and six-string guitars, respectively, in E position, standard tuning

INTRO
I feel like takin' my suitcase, settin' down by that railroad side
If I happen to get killed, baby, don't tell nobody howr(sic) I died

Baby, please don't tell my mother reasons, please don't let my sister know
Baby, please don't tell my mother, please don't let my sister know
Show as you 'preciate my death, baby, will you please hang crepe upon your door?

When you walk into the undertakers', look over on your right-hand side
When you walk into the undertakers', look over on your right-hand side
You could ask the undertakers about me, they may tell you howr I died

Baby, baby, don't you worry, sugar, don't you weep and moan
Baby, please don't you worry, sugar, don't you weep and moan
You may know by that now, baby, that your Freddie's dead and gone

Buy me some flowers, see how they put my body away
Buy me some flowers, see how they put my body away
You can tell all your friends around, baby, you heard the last word I had to say

When you go to the cemetery, they begin to lowerin' my body down
When they go to the cemetery, they begin to lowerin' my body down
Just say, "That's the last of my good man, 'cause they puttin' him in the cold, cold ground."
