Will You Miss Me When I'm Gone?

The Carter Family

exibições 220

When death shall close these eyelids,
and this heart shall cease to beat,
and they lay me down to rest
in some flowery bound retreat.

CHORUS
Will you miss me (miss me when I'm gone) ?
Will you miss me (miss me when I'm gone) ?
Will you miss me (miss me when I'm gone) ?
Will you miss me when I'm gone ?

Perhaps you'll plant a flower
on my poor, unworthy grave.
Come and sit alone beside me,
when the roses nod and wave.

CHORUS

One sweet thought my soul shall cherish,
when this fleeting life has flown,
this sweet thought will cheer when dying,
will you miss me when I'm gone.

CHORUS

When these lips shall never more
press a kiss upon thy brow,
but lie cold and still in death,
will you love me then as now.

CHORUS
