About When I'm Dead and Gone

"When I'm Dead and Gone" is a song written by Benny Gallagher and Graham Lyle. It was recorded and released in November 1970 as the debut single by McGuinness Flint, peaked at No. 2 in the UK charts the following month, and reached No. 47 in the US charts in February 1971. and peaked at #34 in Canada. It was one of the first hit singles to feature prominent use of mandolin, played by Lyle, who also took lead vocal. Gallagher played bass guitar and sang tenor harmony, while both he and Lyle also played kazoos and guitarist Tom McGuinness played the dobro solo. The song was inspired by the life of blues musician Robert Johnson, hence the line in the second verse, "Hey there, Ladies, Johnson's free." According to McGuinness, "You can get to number one in England and sell 200,000 total. But [the single's release] was over Christmas and it sold 400,000 ... it sold a couple of hundred thousand in America, 100,000 in Germany, 50,000 in Japan."After Gallagher and Lyle left the group and enjoyed a successful career as a duo, they featured the song regularly on stage - though usually in the lower key of C, rather than the original key of D, and eschewing kazoos in favour of a harmonica, which Gallagher used on a harness. This treatment of the song can be heard on the duo's 1999 album Live In Concert.

Ooh I love you baby, I love you night and day 
When I leave you baby, don't cry the night away 
When I die, don't you write no words upon my tomb 
I don't believe, I want to leave no epitaph for two 

wohowow, when I'm dead and gone 
I wanna leave some happy woman living on 
Wohowow, when I'm dead and gone 
I don't want nobody to morn beside my grave - yeah 

ooh, Mama Linda, she's out to get my eye 
She's got a shotgun and a daughter by her side 
Hey there, ladies, Johnson´s free 
Who's got the law, who's got the love to keep a man like me 

wohowow, when I'm dead and gone 
I'm gonna leave some happy woman living on 
Wohowow, when I'm dead and gone 
I don't want nobody to morn beside my grave - yeah 

wohowow, when I'm dead and gone 
I'm gonna leave some happy woman living on 
Wohowow, when I'm dead and gone 
I don't want nobody to morn beside my grave - yeah 

when I´m dead and gone...
