And When I Die - Lyrics

And when I die, and when I'm dead, dead and gone
There'll be one child born and a world to carry on
There'll be one child born to carry on

I'm not scared of dyin' and I don't really care
If it's peace you find in dying, well, then let the time be near
If it's peace you find in dying, when dying time is here
Just bundle up my coffin, cause it's cold way down there

And when I die, and when I'm dead, dead and gone
There'll be one child born and a world to carry on
There'll be one child born to carry on

My troubles are many, they're as deep as a well
I can swear there ain't no heaven, but I pray there ain't no hell
Swear there ain't no heaven, pray there ain't no hell
But I'll never know by livin', only my dyin' will tell
Only my dyin' will tell

And when I die, and when I'm dead, dead and gone
There'll be one child born and a world to carry on
There'll be one child born to carry on

Give me my freedom, for as long as I be
All I ask of livin' is to have no chains on me
All I ask I of livin' is to have no chains on me
And all I ask of dyin' is to go naturally
I only wanna go naturally

And when I die, and when I'm gone
There'll be one child born and a world to carry on
There'll be one child born to carry on
Comin' as I go, and a world to carry on
There'll be one child born to carry on
