    Lyrics

    Oh death
    Oh death
    Won't you spare me over til another year

    Well what is this that I can't see
    With ice cold hands taking hold of me
    Well I am death none can excel
    I'll open the door to heaven or hell

    Whoa death someone would pray
    Could you wait to call me til another day
    The children pray the preacher preached
    Time and mercy is out of your reach

    I'll fix your feet til you can't walk
    I'll lock your jaw til you can't talk
    I'll close your eyes so you can't see
    This very hour come and go with me

    In death I come to take the soul
    Leave the body and leave it cold
    To drop the flesh off of the frame
    The earth and worms both have a claim

    Oh death
    Oh death
    Won't you spare me over til another year

    My mother came to my bed
    Place a cold towel upon my head
    My head is warm my feet are cold
    Death is a movin upon my soul

    Oh death how you're treatin me
    You close my eyes so I can't see
    Well you're hurtin my body you make me cold
    You run my life right out of my soul

    Oh death please consider my age
    Please don't take me at this stage
    My wealth is all at your command
    If you'll remove your icy hands

    Oh the young the rich or poor
    All alike to me you know
    No wealth no land no silver or gold
    Nothin satisfies my but your soul

    Oh death
    Oh death
    Won't you spare me over til another year
    Won't you spare me over til another year
    Won't you spare me over til another year
