Willie dixon - Grave digger blues

Lord I saw the grave digger crying
He had his spade in his hand
He says I shan't bury this woman
Till somebody bury her man
You know the poor boy is dead
Oh but he just won't lay down
Well he just can't stand to see his little baby
In the cold cold ground

What's holding him up man
The grave digger wants to know
The undertaker never
Saw nothing like this before
Blood shot tears
Falling from his sunken eyes
He's too weak to live
Too strong to die
