Thread Name: Lyr Req: One Kind Favor
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: One Kind Favor
Here is what I remember
There's one kind favor I'll ask of you
There's one kind favor I'll ask of you
There's one kind favor, I'll ask of you
See that my grave is kept clean

There's two white horses in a line --- etc
Carrying me to the burial ground

Did you ever hear that coffin sound -- etc
Still another poor boy in the ground
'
You can dig my grave with a bloody spade -- etc
At least make sure the digger gets paid

Repeat first verse
I'm sure there are more, check recordings by Dylan and Van Ronk
