Lyrics and Music by Andrew Hozier-Byrne


Bb5   C5  
Mmmm, mmmm,
Bb5   C5  
Mmmm, mmmm,
Bb5   C5  
Mmmm, mmmm,
Bb5  
Mmmm.

Bb5   C5  
Mmmm, mmmm,
Bb5   C5  
Mmmm, mmmm,
Bb5   C5  
Mmmm, mmmm,
Bb5  
Mmmm.

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

Bb5                                   C5  
There’s nothing sweeter than my baby.
    Bb5                                  C5  
I’d never want once from the cherry tree
Bb5                           C5  
’Cause my baby’s sweet as can be,
    Bb5  
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.
