Well I be gone these lonesome days I return again here's what I say Go dig my grave both wide and deep

Place a marble stone at my head and my feet Oh Lord oh Lord oh Lordie me Oh Lord oh Lord oh Lordie me She went upstairs to make her bed And not one word to her mama said Her mama she went upstairs too Says daughter oh daughter what troubles you Oh mama dear I cannot tell That railroad boy I love so well He courted me my love away And now with me he will not stay Oh Lord oh Lord oh Lordie me Oh Lord oh Lord oh Lordie me Her papa he come home from work Says wheres my daughter she seems so hurt He went upstairs just to give her hope And he found her hanging from a rope Oh Lord oh Lord oh Lordie me Oh Lord oh Lord oh Lordie me When he took his knife and he cut her down And in her bosom these words he found Oh dig my grave both wide and deep Place a marbles stone at my head and my feet And on my breast place a snow white dove To tell this world I died for love Oh Lord oh Lord oh Lordie me Oh Lord oh Lord oh Lordie me
