Hozier – Work Song
A#               Cm
Boys workin on empty
A# Cm
Is that the kinda way to face the burning heat?
A# Cm
I just think about my baby
A#
I'm so full of love I could barely eat
A# Cm
There's nothing sweeter than my baby
A# Cm
I never want once from the cherry tree
A# Cm
Cause my baby's sweet as can be
A#
She give me toothaches just from kissin me

Gm F
When, my, time comes around
A# Cm
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
Gm F
No grave can hold my body down
A#
I'll crawl home to her

A# Cm
That's when my baby found me
A# Cm
I was three days on a drunken sin
A# Cm
I woke with her walls around me
A# Cm
Nothin in her room but an empty crib
A# Cm
And I was burnin up a fever
A# Cm
I didn't care much how long I lived
A# Cm
But I swear I thought I dreamed her
A#
She never asked me once about the wrong I did

Gm F
When, my, time comes around
A# Cm
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
Gm F
No grave can hold my body down
A#
I'll crawl home to her (Repeat chorus)

A# Cm
My baby never fret none
A# Cm
About what my hands and my body done
A# Cm
If the Lord don't forgive me
A#
I'd still have my baby and my babe would have me
A# Cm
When I was kissing on my baby
A# Cm
And she put her love down soft and sweet
A# Cm
In the lowland plot I was free
A#
Heaven and hell were words to me

Gm F
When, my, time comes around
A# Cm
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
Gm F
No grave can hold my body down
A#
I'll crawl home to her
