Haven't found the lyrics yet but:

Wiki Answers It's just an old body was written by two guys in Alabama. Former Warrior River Boy Stan Wilemon, and his older brother Harlon.

IT'S JUST AN OLD BODY
(David Davis, and Stanley & Harlon Wilemon)

CHORUS
It's just an old body,
No, Mother's not there;
Her soul's gone to heaven
To rest up there.
No pain and no sorrow
On heaven's bright shore,
She'll have a new body,
She'll suffer no more.

The old man looked over to the little boy,
And his hands were trembling, and with a shake in his voice;
He said, "Son don't you realize, your mother lies dead?"
As he walked away, that little boy said:
CHORUS

As he stood in the graveyard in silence that day,
And mourned for our loved one that God called away.
The minister said, as comfort he gave,
"Well, that's just an old body, that sleeps in the grave."
CHORUS


Transcribed from the 2005 album, David Davis And The Warrior River Boys

BMI.com says that "It's Just an Old Body" was written by David Leddell Davis Jr., Harlon Eugene Wilemon, and Stanley Wade Wilemon.

I found YouTube recordings of the song here (click) and here (click).
