Well, the time is swiftly rolling on
When I know that I must die
My body to the dust to return
And there for God and I

There is not so much that I've never done
Now you owe me no pay
You take me to the little hillside
And lower me beneath the clay

You may sing the songs that I used to sing
Talk about the things that I've done
When you take me to the little hillside
Leave me there all alone

Don't place them flowers on my grave
There's little that you can say
When you take me to the little hillside
And lower me beneath the clay

Oh, there is one and a precious one
Why do you treat me cold?
When no one loves you as I do
God in heaven knows

There is one more thought that I'll leave with you
Then I'll be travelling on
Don't shed no tears, don't weep for me
Maybe I was wrong
