Roll me up and smoke me when I die
And if anyone don't like it, just look 'em in the eye
Say I didn't come here, and I ain't leavin'
So don't sit around and cry
Just roll me up and smoke me when I die.

You won't see no sad and teary eyes
When I get my wings and it's my time to fly
Just call my friends and tell them
There's a party, come on by
And just roll me up and smoke me when I die.

Roll me up and smoke me when I die
And if anyone don't like it, just look 'em in the eye
Say I didn't come here, and I ain't leavin'
So don't sit around and cry
Just roll me up and smoke me when I die.

Well just take me out and build a roaring fire
And just roll me in the flames for about an hour
And then pull me out and twist me up
And point me towards the sky
And roll me up and smoke me when I die.

Roll me up and smoke me when I die
And if anyone don't like it, just look 'em in the eye
Say I didn't come here, and I ain't leavin'
So don't sit around and cry
Just roll me up and smoke me when I die.

I didn't come here, and I ain't leavin'
So don't sit around and cry
Just roll me up and smoke me when I die.

    Willie closed his concert last night with the song and it was so funny how many folks were singing it, humming it - everybody loved it. What a guy, great concert Willie. Cocoa (Maury (murph) Scheider), who worked on your amps when he was with the Dead says hi and that it was the highlight of the year for him to see you last night!

    'i dream of jeannie' actor larry hagman supposedly said that, after his death, he wants "to be fed through a wood chipper, be spread over a wheat field, then have a cake baked from the crop for all my pals to munch on.

    "i want the cake to be made of half marijuana, which makes people so much less violent than booze, and people should learn to eat pot rather than smoke it because it damages the heart and lungs less that way. "

    Not only is hagman a generous friend, but he figures his way is better for the environment. Willie is just saying he's got major nelson's back on this one!
