Intro: A#   Cm (x8) 

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

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

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

Gm            F 
    When, my, time comes around 
A#                                 Cm 
    Lay me gently in the cold dark earth 
Gm               F 
    No grave can hold my body down 
A# 
    I'll crawl home to her                (Repeat Chorus) 


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


Gm            F 
    When, my, time comes around 
A#                                 Cm 
    Lay me gently in the cold dark earth 
Gm               F 
    No grave can hold my body down 
A# 
    I'll crawl home to her             (Repeat Chorus) 


A#  Cm (x4)
