About the song
[Get a **free download** when you join The Rosinators' mailing list] Blind Lemon Jefferson recorded the traditional "See That My Grave Is Kept Clean" in October 1927, two years before he froze to death on the streets of Chicago. When Jefferson learned the song it was a folk spiritual called "Two White Horses In A Line", also known as "One Kind Favour". Read more here.
Lyrics
One Kind Favour

1. Well there's one kind favour I'll ask of you
Well there's one kind favour I'll ask of you
Well there's one kind favour I'll ask of you
See that my grave is kept clean

2. Well there's two white horses in a line
Well there's two white horses in a line
Well there's two white horses in a line
Carryin' me to my buryin' ground

3. Well there's three black coaches in the rain
Well there's three black coaches in the rain
Well there's three black coaches in the rain
Empty now from their heavy load

4. Did you ever hear that coffin sound
Did you ever hear that coffin sound
Did you ever hear that coffin sound
Being lowered into the ground

5. Well there's one kind favour I'll ask of you
Well there's one kind favour I'll ask of you
Well there's one kind favour I'll ask of you
See that my grave is kept clean
