[Intro]

F, G,F, G,F, G,F


[Verse 1]

F                        G
Boys workin on empty
F                                                G
Is that the kinda way to face the burning heat?
F                           G
I just think about my baby
F                        
I'm so full of love I could barely eat


[Verse 2]

F                                    G
There's nothing sweeter than my baby
F                                      G
I never want once from the cherry tree
F                               G
Cause my baby's sweet as can be
F                        
She give me toothaches just from kissin me


[Chorus]

G           F
    When, my, time comes around
Bb                                 C
    Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
  G               F
    No grave can hold my body down
Bb
    I'll crawl home to her


[Verse 3]

F                           G
That's when my baby found me
F                                 G
I was three days on a drunken sin
F                               G
I woke with her walls around me
F                                    
Nothin in her room but an empty crib


[Verse 4]

F                            G
And I was burnin up a fever
F                                   G
I didn't care much how long I lived
F                                    G
But I swear I thought I dreamed her
F                        
She never asked me once about the wrong I did


[Chorus] X2

G           F
    When, my, time comes around
Bb                                 C*
    Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
G               F
    No grave can hold my body down
Bb
    I'll crawl home to her


[Verse 5]

F                        G
My baby never fret none
F                                    G
About what my hands and my body done
F                            G
If the Lord don't forgive me
F                        
I'd still have my baby and my babe would have me


[Verse 6]

F                             G
When I was kissing on my baby
F                                        G
And she put her love down soft and sweet
F                              G
In the lowland plot I was free
F                        
Heaven and hell were words to me


[Chorus] X2

G           F
    When, my, time comes around
Bb                                 C
    Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
G               F
    No grave can hold my body down
Bb
    I'll crawl home to her

[Outro]

F, G,F, G,F, G,F
