Cemetary Worker's

It happened in clinton cemetary in oklahoma
My grandpa was sitting in the cemetary
Late at night
When two men rode up in a horse and a buggy herst
Going to barry a young men,
And the two men and the herst were drinking
My grandpa jumped in the back of the herst,
And crawled into the basket
With the young men,
And shutted the lid
He listened to the men talk back and forth
One of the men was drinking whistkey,
And offered the other men a drink,
And about that time
My grandpa jumped up and
Said i don't mind if i do
The two men got scared,
And jumped out of the herst,
And took off running
Out of the cemetary
My grandpa got two horses,
And a herst
That he took home the next day,
And the two men never went back
To the cemetary again.
