Lyrics

I'm not scared of dying 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 And if dying time is near Just bundle up my coffin Cause it's cold way down there I hear that it's cold Way down there, yeah Crazy cold, way down there And when I die And when I'm gone There'll be one child born In this world to carry on To carry on Now 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 And I'll pray there ain't no Hell But I'll never know by living Only my dying will tell Yes, only my dying will tell Oh, yeah, only my dying will tell And when I die And when I'm gone There'll be one child born In this world to carry on To carry on, yeah, yeah Give me my freedom For as long as I be All I ask of living Is to have no chains on me

All I ask of living Is to have no chains on me And all I ask of dying Is to go naturally Only wanna go naturally Here I go, ha, hey, hey Here come the devil right behind Look out children, here he come Here he come, hey Don't wanna go by the devil Don't wanna go by the demon Don't wanna go by Satan Don't wanna die uneasy Just let me go naturally And when I die And when I'm dead, dead and gone There'll be one child born In our world to carry on To carry on, yeah, yeah
