It's a great song, but very hard to understand. Mudcatter Richie posted an excerpt on his website, http://www.bluegrassmessengers.com/death-in-the-morning-reverend-anderson-johnson-.aspx:
Death in the Morning - Reverend Anderson Johnson [excerpt]
[sung/spoken] Well it makes people worried man or woman all,
When death descends on you my friend
You'll think of the dear mother of yours,
When you arrive to to mother's door,
And dhe won't pass you by,
She'll do all the good she can
VERSE: Well the doctor pulls up to your gate
Believe my child you have waited a little too late
Your fever now is one hundred and two,
There a narrow chance you'll ever pull through.
CHORUS: Please Death, please oh Death in the morning,
Please Death, (Death) spare my life, just another year.
...and this one is rather interesting, but not for the squeamish:
