[Intro]

G6 Am G6 Am G6 Em G6 

G6 Am G6 Am G6 Em G6 


[Verse 1]

G6                  Am G6
Boys workin on empty
                                                Am G6
Is that the kinda way to face the burning heat?
                          Am G6
I just think about my baby
                                      
I'm so full of love I could barely eat
G6                                  Am G6
There's nothing sweeter than my baby
                                      Am G6
I never want once from the cherry tree
                               Am G6
Cause my baby's sweet as can be
                                   
She give me toothaches just from kissin me


[Chorus]

Em    D
When, my, time comes around
G6            Am
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
Em       D
No grave can hold my body down
G6               Am
I'll crawl home to her


[Verse 2]

G6                          Am G6
That's when my baby found me
                                 Am G6
I was three days on a drunken sin
                               Am G6
I woke with her walls around me

Nothin in her room but an empty crib
G6                         Am G6
And I was burnin up a fever
                                   Am G6
I didn't care much how long I lived
                                   Am G6
But I swear I thought I dreamed her
                                             Am G6
She never asked me once about the wrong I did


[Chorus]

Em    D
When, my, time comes around
G6            Am
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
Em       D
No grave can hold my body down
G6               Am
I'll crawl home to her

Em    D
When, my, time comes around
G6            Am
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
Em       D
No grave can hold my body down
G6               Am
I'll crawl home to her


[Bridge]

G6                     Am G6
My baby never fret none
                                    Am G6
About what my hands and my body done
                            Am G6
If the Lord don't forgive me

I'd still have my baby and my babe would have me
G6                             Am G6
When I was kissing on my baby
                                        Am G6
And she put her love down soft and sweet
                              Am G6
In the lowland plot I was free

Heaven and hell were words to me


[Chorus]

Em    D
When, my, time comes around
G6            Am
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
Em       D
No grave can hold my body down
G6               Am
I'll crawl home to her

Em    D
When, my, time comes around
G6            Am
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
Em       D
No grave can hold my body down
G6               Am
I'll crawl home to her
