Sweet Honey in the Rock

Sweet Honey in the Rock is an all-woman, African-American a cappella ensemble. They are an American Grammy Award-winning (and many times nominated) troupe who express their history as women of color through song, dance, and sign language. They have together worked from four women to the difficult five-part harmony with a sixth member translating with sign language. Although the members have changed over 3 decades, they continue to sing and have helped to produce several children's records as well as those intended for adults. more »

And when I die and when I'm dead, dead and gone, 
there'll be one child born and a world to carry on, 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, 
I hear that's it's cold way down there, yeah, crazy cold way down there. 
And when I die and when I'm gone, 
there'll be one child born and a world to carry on, 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 and pray there ain't no hell, 
but I'll never know by living, only my dying will tell, 
only my dying will tell, yeah, only my dying will tell. 
And when I die and when I'm gone, 
there'll be one child born and a world to carry on, to carry on. 

Give me my freedom for as long as I be.
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, only want to go naturally.
Don't want to go by the devil, don't want to go by the demon, 
don't want to go by Satan, don't want to die uneasy,
just let me go naturally. 
And when I die and when I'm gone, 
there'll be one child born, there'll be one child born. 
When I die, there'll be one child born.
When I die, there'll be one child born.
When I die, there'll be one child born.
When I die, there'll be one child born.
