Key:

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

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

B C#m
That’s when my baby found me
B C#m
I was three days on a drunken sin
B C#m
I woke with her walls around me
B C#m
Nothin in her room but an empty crib
B C#m
And I was burnin up a fever
B C#m
I didn’t care much how long I lived
B C#m
But I swear I thought I dreamed her
B
She never asked me once about the wrong I did

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

B C#m
My baby never fret none
B C#m
About what my hands and my body done
B C#m
If the Lord don’t forgive me
B
I’d still have my baby and my babe would have me
B C#m
When I was kissing on my baby
B C#m
And she put her love down soft and sweet
B C#m
In the lowland plot I was free
B
Heaven and hell were words to me

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