And when I die
and when I'm dead, dead and gone,
there'll be one child born and a world to carry on;
there'll be one child born to carry on.

I'm not scared of dying and I don't really care,
if it's peace you find in dying, well then let the time be near.
If it’s peace you find in dying, when dying time is here,
Just bundle up my coffin, 'cause it's cold way down there.

(Refrain)
And when I die, and when I'm gone,
there'll be one child born
and a world to carry on;
there'll be one child born to carry on.

My troubles are many, they're as deep as a well.
I can swear there ain't no heaven but I pray there ain't no hell.
Swear there ain't no heaven, pray there ain't no hell;
but I'll never know by living, only my dying will tell. (Refrain)

Give me my freedom, for 'long as I feel;
all I ask of living is to have no chains on me.
All I ask of living is to have no chains on me,
and all I ask of dying is to go naturally.

And when I die, and when I'm gone,
there'll be one child born and a world to carry on;
there'll be one child born coming as I go,
and a world to carry on,
there'll be one child born to carry on.
