lyrics

DIG MY GRAVE

Broke and hungry, sad and lonely, ragged and dirty too
Jes’ want to know If I kin go home wid you
I ain’t good lookin’, ain’t no doctor, ain’t no doctor’s son
But I can cool your fever till the doctor comes

Or dig my grave, let me down real gentle
Dig my grave, let me down wid a golden chain

I’m a good ol’ boy, but I jes’ ain’t treated right
I’m a good ol’ boy, the freezin’ ground was my foldin’ bed las’ night
I’s tired of livin’, pretty mama, I don’t know what to do
I’s tired of livin’, you’s tired of me, I’s tired of you

Dig my grave, let me down real gentle
Dig my grave, let me down wid a golden chain

Dig a hole for me with a shiny silver spade
Dig a hole for me and let the maggots eat my bones away
They tell me de graveyard is a long ol’ lonesome place
They put you six feet in the ground... and throw clods
in yo’ face

Dig my grave, let me down real gentle
Dig my grave, let me down wid a golden chain
Let me down wid a golden chain
Let me down wid a golden chain
