lyrics

Lord let me die in this world of mine
Lord let me die in this world of mine
Sweet honey, let me die in this world of mine
Oh I wanna die in this world of mine

Give me love when my heart is tried
Give me a drink when my mouth is dried
Give a hammer and I’ll build this town
Give me honor when you lay me down

Lord let me die in this world of mine…

From the great wide ocean to the land of pines
From the Mississippi and the Delta line
Through the badland where the Cherokees died
Up to Colorado on a mountain high

Lord let me die in this world of mine…

I wanna sink my feet in the ground real low
Feel the heat and the pull of the undertow
Move to the rhythms of Rock & Roll
Like a locomotive straight through my soul

Lord let me die in this world of mine

Mmmm…

Lord let me die in this world of mine

Give me strength when my knees are weak
Give a bed, a roof, and a sheet
Give me joy when the pain is deep
Give me courage when I choose to speak

Some day babe I wanna die in this world

Lord let me die in this world of mine…
