    Lyrics

    I'm lookin' funny in my eyes and I believe I'm fixin' to die, believe I'm fixin' to die
    I'm lookin' funny in my eyes and I believe I'm fixin' to die
    I know I was born to die but I hate to leave my children cryin'

    Just as sho' as we livin', just as sho' we born to die, sho' we born to die
    Just as sho' as we livin', sho' we born to die
    I know I was born to die but I hate to leave my children cryin'

    Your mother treated me children like I was her baby child, was her baby child
    Your mother treated me like I was her baby child
    That's why's I find it so hard to come back home to die

    So many nights at the fireside, how my children's mother would cry, how my children's mother would cry
    So many nights at the fireside, how my children's mother would cry
    Cause I told the mother I had to say goodbye

    Look over yonder, on the burying ground, on the burying ground
    Look over yonder, on the burying ground
    Yon' stand ten thousand, standin' still to let me down

    Mother take my children back, before they let me down, before they let me down
    Mother take my children back, 'fore they let me down
    I don't need for them to screamin' and cryin' on the graveyard ground
