Six Feet Under The Ground

print

Well they tell me my sweetheart now is leaving
A new love I know she has found
To love you and know I’m gonna lose you
I’d rather be six feet under the ground

    Who will take care of my graveside
    Who’s footsteps will come walking around
    Read my name upon the tombstone
    You can bet your life my soul is homeward bound

When the time has come and you are gone dear
You can bet your life I won’t be hangin’ around
I’d rather be in my dark grave dear
I’d rather be six feet under the ground
