Intro:  C  D  G   
Verse 1: 
G                      C 
The other day I took a fishin' trip  
D                    G 
Just me an' my boat, and ol' Banjo-lip  
                    C 
Banjo was my guide, an old colored fella'  
D                    G 
He wasn't very dark, he was a high-steppin' yella'  
                        C 
So we launched my boat, and I cranked my motor  
D                      G   
And up to my nose came a terrible odor  
                            C 
I looked all around trying to find something dead  
D                                G 
But it was Banjo with his arm up, scratching his head.  
D                       C         D          G 
Some niggers never die, they just smell that way.   
 
 
Verse 2: 
Now the more he'd scratch, the more he'd sweat  
And I'm here to say, he was a-chokin' me to death  
So we loaded up, I just couldn't go on  
And I coughed and I gagged-all the way home.  
When I dropped him off, I was next to dyin'  
My nose was a' running, and my eyes were a' cryin'.  
The smell scorched the hair right out of my nose,  
And when I got home, I had to burn all my clothes!  
 
Repeat Chorus 
 
Verse 3: 
I recuperated quick, I was thankful for that  
I was only in bed for a week and a half.  
The very first day I was up on my feet.  
I went to the supermarket, down the street.  
I shopped all around, and I filled out my order,  
My groceries were bagged by a fat nigger porter.  
The air conditioner was broke, an' I was ferocious  
Cause' it was hot, and that nigger was a-sweatin' on my groceries!  
 
Repeat Chorus  
 
Verse 4: 
The vegetable and greens I bought started wilting  
My blood pressure rose, and I could have killed him!  
I was gonna smash him all over that place,  
But he raised up his arm, and I fell on my face!  
Now I'm here in the hospital, and at the ceiling I stare,  
I could have whipped that nigger, except he used germ warfare!  
So from now on, I'll carry a long, long stick,  
Cause if I keep from the smell, then I'll have him licked!  
 
Repeat Chorus

About the artist behind Some Nigger Never Die:

Johnny Rebel is the pseudonym of Cajun/country musician Clifford Joseph "Pee Wee" Trahan (born October 3, 1938). Trahan has used this pseudonym most notably on racist[1]recordings issued in the 1960s on J. D. "Jay" Miller's Reb Rebel label of Crowley, Louisiana.[1][2]

His songs frequently use the racial epithet nigger and often voice sympathy for Jim Crow-era segregation and the Ku Klux Klan. Nearly all his songs serve as platforms for denigrating African Americans and the civil rights movement.[2]

Trahan first recorded under the Johnny Rebel moniker in the mid-1960s, when the civil rights movement and black empowerment movement reached their zeniths. He employed J. D. "Jay" Miller's recording studio in Crowley, Louisiana. Miller, in fact, produced the sessions and issued the recordings on his own Reb Rebel label.[2]

Trahan's first release — the fifth for the Reb Rebel label — was a 45 RPM single of "Lookin' For A Handout" and "Kajun Ku Klux Klan." He would record five more singles for the label, which included "Nigger, Nigger," "In Coon Town," "Who Likes a Nigger?," "Nigger Hatin' Me," "Still Looking For a Handout," "Some Niggers Never Die (They Just Smell That Way)," "Stay Away From Dixie,", and "Move Them Niggers North."[2]

At least two of Trahan's songs, "Keep a-Workin' Big Jim" and "(Federal Aid Hell!) The Money Belongs to Us," were not about race, but about political issues — namely, the efforts of Louisiana district attorney Jim Garrison to solve the Kennedy assassination and U.S. monetary assistance to foreign countries.[3]

Two of these songs were eventually issued in album format by Reb Rebel Records under the title "For Segregationists Only".[2]

Trahan has never allowed himself to be photographed by anyone other than close friends and family, though he claims there are indeed images of him on the Internet. He says he has no idea where those photos originated.[3] A CD compilation of his works simply shows a hooded Klansman together with a depiction of the Confederate Battle Flag.

After a hiatus of about three decades, Trahan returned as Johnny Rebel in 2001 when he issued his CD single "Infidel Anthem," recorded in response to the September 11, 2001 attacks.[3]

In 2003 Trahan released the album It's The Attitude, Stupid!, on the Try It Man record label. At least two persons or entities, including one affiliated with racist and hate groups, claim ownership of the Johnny Rebel catalog. At present, however, it is unclear who actually owns the recordings.[3]

Johnny Rebel's songs have been covered by other singers such as Big Reb and the German band Landser.[citation needed]
