Intro -x8-: Bb  Cm

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


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


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


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


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


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