Subject: RE: Didn't wake up this morning!
Mike Cross has been doing a version for several years:

Dead Willy Blues

I did not wake up this morning
I did not get out of bed
I looked down from the ceiling
And I saw that I was dead

I've got those "Dead Willy Blues"
Old "Dead Willy Blues"
Well how long have I had 'em
Those old Dead Willy Blues.

Well the doctor came to see me
And then he told my wife
"I think he's dead," but by wife said
"He's like this every night

Chorus:I've got those "Dead Willy .

Undertaker came to get me
And my wife said through her tears
"I wish you wouldn't haul him off
He ain't been this stiff in years"

Chorus: I've got those "Dead Willy .

(I think it's on a couple of his CDs, but will have to dig them out to check.)
