You know they tell me the graveyard, graveyard Is a low down dirty place You know they tell me the graveyard, graveyard Is a low down dirty place They takin' my baby to the graveyard And they pack dirt in her face I followed that long black wagon, long black wagon down to the graveyard Watched them pack dirt in my baby's face I followed that long black wagon to the graveyard Watched them pack dirt in my baby's face Mr. Graveyard Digger, why you wanna take my baby away? I waved bye-bye, bye at my baby As they was lettin' her down in her grave (yes I did) Lettin' her down, lettin' her down in her grave I'm gonna bring you some flowers baby, bring you some flowers On every decoration day, baby Gonna decorate your grave baby On every decoration day Poor me, poor me, poor me Mm poor me, poor, poor me I ain't got nobody baby I ain't got nobody baby All I got in the world Have passed away My baby gone Have passed away
