Lyrics

You can bury my body
You can bury my body
You can bury my body deep down in the ground
But the dust and the bone won't make a sound
Yeah, you can bury my body

Well, I won't grow weary no more
Ain't afraid of death knockin' on my door
Sweet salvation in the by-and-by
No more trouble, gonna leave it behind

So, you can bury my body
You can bury my body
You can bury my body deep down in the ground
But the dust and the bone won't make a sound
'Cause I'll be up in glory
I'll be shoutin' the story
That they buried my body deep down in the ground
But the weight of this world couldn't hold me down
But you can bury my body
You can bury my body

The devil done missed his chance to steal my soul
He crooked his crooked finger and I said, "Hell, no"
Took the hand of Jesus, pulled me outta the grave
Death was cheated and my soul was saved

You can bury my body
You can bury my body
You can bury my body deep down in the ground
But the dust and the bone won't make a sound
'Cause I'll be up in glory
I'll be shoutin' the story
That they buried my body deep down in the ground
But the weight of this world couldn't hold me down
Yeah, you can bury my body
