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

There’s nothing sweeter than my baby,
I’d never want once from the cherry tree,
‘Cus my baby’s sweet as can be
She’d give me toothaches just from kissing me

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.

Boys, 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 thoguht I dreamed her,
She never asked once about the wrong I did.

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 babe would never fret non
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’d put her love down soft and sweet,
In the low lamp light I was free
Heave and Hell were words to me.

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.
