These are the chords for Rockabilly Funeral by Bill Kirchen on Piano, Ukulele, Guitar, and Keyboard
[Intro]
E        E        E        E 

[Verse 1]
E
Well there's a black tow truck 
with his headlights on
E
And there's a slow procession across 
the graveyard lawn
    A
And hooked to the back, 
there's a Coupe DeVille
       E
With a real cool cat, 
sitting at a wheel
    E
The obituaries in the papers say
   E
He up and went and rocked 
his life away
    A7                           A
His last request, rock don't cry
  E  N.C.                   
I want a rockabilly funeral 
           E
when I die

[Verse 2]
E
Now there's a rockabilly singer 
getting buried in his car
E
That's my one and only rock'n'rollin' 
heart's desire
           A
I want the back seat covered with 
the records I made
E
And this old Telecaster that 
I always played
E
The Cadillac's pointed towards 
at the Memphis T
E
Well Carl Perkins made a 
rockabilly history
        A7            
I'll be rocking up to 
                   A
heaven on my 4-6 ply
  E N.C.                    
I want a rockabilly funeral 
           E
when I die

[Chorus]
   A
So put a lot of echo on 
the preacher's mike
   E
When you tell him that my 
memory's rocking on
   A
Be sure you get to shaking when 
he starts to shout
E  N.C.     
That cat is 
                           E
really-really-really gone! 
E
I want a rockabilly funeral 
when I die
E
A rockabilly funeral when I die
E
I want a rockabilly funeral 
when I die
E
A rockabilly funeral when I die

[Outro]
E   E
E
Alright, I wanna be buried in 
my car, with my guitar
E
I want a Waterford Jukebox, 
and Sun 45 RPM Records
E
Casket, gold I made, 
shroud, blue swede
E
Chicks, with their bee hive hairdo's, 
with the bees still in 'em
E
Fishnet stockings, 
with the fish still in 'em
E
Cashmire sweaters, 
with the cash still in 'em
