Lyrics and Music by Andrew Hozier-Byrne


Bb5/F C5/G
Mmmm, mmmm,
Bb5/F C5/G
Mmmm, mmmm,
Bb5/F C5/G
Mmmm, mmmm,
Bb5/F
Mmmm.

Bb5/F C5/G
Mmmm, mmmm,
Bb5/F C5/G
Mmmm, mmmm,
Bb5/F C5/G
Mmmm, mmmm,
Bb5/F
Mmmm.

Bb5/F                  C5/G
Boys working on empty,
   Bb5/F
Is that the kind of way
                          C5/G
To face the burning heat?
Bb5/F                       C5/G
I just think about my baby,
    Bb5/F
I’m so full of love,
I could barely eat.

Bb5/F                                 C5/G
There’s nothing sweeter than my baby.
    Bb5/F                                C5/G
I’d never want once from the cherry tree
Bb5/F                         C5/G
’Cause my baby’s sweet as can be,
    Bb5/F
She give me toothaches
Just from kissing me.

Chorus:
   Gm       F7             Bb
     When my time comes around,
                                     Cm
     Lay me gently in the cold, dark earth.
   Gm             F7
     No grave can hold my body down,
   Bb
     I’ll crawl home to her.

That’s when my baby found me,
I was three days
On a drunken sin.
I woke with her walls around me,
Nothing in her room
But an empty crib.

And I was burning up a fever,
I didn’t care
Much how long I lived.
But I swear I thought I dreamed her,
She never asked me
Once about the wrong I did.

Chorus:
     When my time comes around,
     Lay me gently in the cold, dark earth.
     No grave can hold my body down
     I’ll crawl home to her.

     When my time comes around,
     Lay me gently in the cold, dark earth.
     No grave can hold my body down,
     I’ll crawl home to her.

My baby never fret none
About what my hands
And my body done.
If the Lord don’t forgive me,
I’d still have my baby,
And my babe would have me.

When I was kissing
On my baby,
And she put her love down soft and sweet,
In the low lamplight I was free,
Heaven and Hell
Were words to me.

Chorus:
     When my time comes around,
     Lay me gently in the cold, dark earth.
     No grave can hold my body down,
     I’ll crawl home to her.

     When my time comes around,
     Lay me gently in the cold, dark earth.
     No grave can hold my body down,
     I’ll crawl home to her.
