lyrics

I reckon I'll have a good life and that I'll make my way
But before I get too old, there will come a day
I'll fall asleep one night, I will dream at your side
I reckon; no, I know, one day too young I'll die

Maybe it was the liquor or perhaps it was them pills
Perhaps it be a baby; that, my body cannot feel
A mother I won't ever be but I refuse to cry
I reckon; no, I know, one day too young I'll die

Will heaven be as pretty as preacher made it sound
Will I be delivered there, or only to the ground
By Peter and by Gabriel, a flaming sword so bright
Will alight that sodden hollow down where my body lie

I'll ready my soul for it, a prayer I shall say
'Cause before I get too old there will come a day
I'll fall asleep one night not far off, by and by
I'll sleep but never shall waken, one day too young I'll die

Will you be there by my side?
Cry not for me, my sweetheart, for you'll see me by and by
