I would render (render= verb "to tear apart")the last 2 lines of the second verse as:
"She can search the whole world over,
she'll never find a good man like me".
and the last verse:
Whe I die I want you to bury me
In a box-back suit and a stetson hat
Put a dollar gold piece on my watch chain
To let the boys know I died standing pat
