Ray Stevens - Family Funeral Fight Lyrics


Now he was just a little fella
Barely 5 foot 3
But he caused a great commotion
Down in Ducktown Tennessee
Now it was nothing that the old man did
Or one word that he said
Fact is the trouble didn’t start
Till three days after he was dead.

It was a huge military funeral
With the family gathered round
Come to show the old man honor
And to ease him in the ground
But murmurs spread among the crowd
And the mourner’s blood ran cold
When up pulled the big squad car
Marked Tennessee State Patrol

It was the old mans youngest son
Doing 25 to life
For burning down his brother’s trailer
And running off with his wife
The entire family was divided
Held together by a shaky truce
And then a woman yelled
I still love you Earl and all hell broke lose

Brothers, uncles, sisters, cousins
Knife and fist fights by the dozens
Yellin, spittin, bitin, hittin
What a sight to see
At the Ducktown knock down
family funeral fight
It started in the afternoon
And lasted half the night
10 were stabbed 2 were shot
Nobody walked or talked quite right
After the ducktown knock down
Family funeral fight

Well they called out the county Mounties
And old highway patrol
And after about an hour or two
They finally gained control
The sheriff said this is a disgrace
And I’m haulin all yall in
But Not till we've brought this service
To a decent end

So the Honor Guard stepped forward
Fired their rifles in the air
An old lady who was snoozin
Jumped and fell out of her chair
And as she hit that Astroturf you won’t
Believe what happened then
A boy yelled “Whoa they shot grandma”
And here we go again

Mourners, Police, Honor Guards,
Relatives from near and far
Cussin, fussin, bitin, and hittin,
What a sight to see
At the Ducktown knock down
Family funeral fight
It started in the afternoon
And lasted half the night
10 were stabbed 2 were shot
Nobody walked or talked quite right
After the Ducktown knock down
Family funeral fight

It was the Ducktown knock down
Family funeral feud
You can’t believe the mayhem
And the chaos that ensued
Why they even shot the sheriff
Punched out the preachers lights
At the Ducktown knock down
Family funeral fight

The Ducktown knock down
Family funeral fight
