"And When I Die"

(As recorded by Blood, Sweat & Tears)
LAURA NYRO

I'm not scared a dyin' and I, don't really care
If it's peace you find in dyin' well then, let the time be near
If it's peace you find in dyin' and if dyin' 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 pray there ain't no hell
But I'll never know by living only my, dyin' will tell yes only my
Dyin' will tell yeah, only my dyin' 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.

Yee-ha!

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 dyin' is to go naturally only wanna, go naturally
Here I go!
Hey, hey here come the devil, right behind
Look out children, here he come, here he come, hey.

Don't want to go by the devil
Don't want to go by demon
Don't want to go by satan
Don't want to 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.
