TIGER, Ga. — His pallbearers were the six boys who built his plain pine coffin in their high-school shop class. They built it right in the middle of the classroom. When they finished, one of the boys crawled inside it while the others toted him around the school to make sure it worked. Now Sammy Green lay inside the coffin, wearing the overalls he had requested, while the boys marched him to his mountainside grave. Two preachers played guitars and crooned the kind of bluegrass gospel Green loved. "I'm a weary traveler," one song began, "traveling through this land."
