I Will Be There When You Die
by My Morning Jacket



Joe was born in New York City,
Son of Paul and Catherine
Always down and always out,
But his 'morrows always seemed jus' fine

There will be bigotry and
There will be open minds
There will be days of peace
You'll never have the time
As long as you keep a straight face

I will be there when you die
I was born in east kentucky,
Home of where the grass is dyed
Always down and always out,
But my 'morrows always seemed just fine

There will be bigotry and
There will be open minds
There will be days of peace
You'll never have the time
As long as you keep a straight face
I will be there when you die.
