Lyrics

[Hook]
Gone away don't you wanna go
Gone away don't you wanna go
Gone away, don't you wanna go
Gone to my home on the other shore
There's just one kind favor I ask of you
There is one kind favor I'll ask of you
One kind favor I'll ask of you
See that my grave is kept clean

[Verse 1]
Dig my grave with a silver spade
Won't you dig my grave with a silver spade
Dig my grave with a silver spade
Ease me down with a golden chain

[Verse 2]
Did you ever hear a church bell tone?
Did you ever hear those church bells tone?
Have you ever heard a church bells tone?
Then you know I'm dead and gone

[Verse 3]
They say those streets are paved with gold
Well they say those streets are paved with gold
Well they say those streets are paved with gold
Lord have mercy on my soul
Oh Lord have mercy on my soul
Lord have mercy on my soul
Oh Lord have mercy on my soul
