I'm diggin' you a shallow grave 
An to the sun your face I'll raise 
I'm diggin' you a shallow grave 
One hundred buzzards buzzin'

Eyes closed no lookin' back at me 
Ye they came an took him in the night 
The one who kissed em was greed 

O everyone will see 
An everyone will know 
Boy you reap what you sow 
I'm diggin' you a shallow grave 

An on your rotten bones I'll raise 
Yellow daisies 
For my true loves hair 
One hundred buzzards buzzin' 

I see death runnin' from his majesty 
O lord where is the fear in me 
In between your praying hands 
You hold the skeleton key
