Gravedigger's Chant Lyrics

Zeal and Ardor
[Verse 1]
Bring the dead body down to the graveyard now
Bring the dead down low, down low
Bring the dead body down to the graveyard, sir
Bring the dead down low, down low

[Pre-Chorus]
Watch yourself
You can't run
You can't hide
Stay with me
You can't run
You can't hide
Watch yourself

[Chorus]
Bring the dead body down
Bring the dead body down
Bring the dead body down
Bring the dead body down

[Verse 2]
Bring the dead man's shoes to the seashore, child
Bring the dead man's shoes down low
Bring the dead man's shoes to the seashore, child
Bring the old man's shoes down low

[Pre-Chorus]
Watch yourself
You can't run
You can't hide
Stay with me
You can't run
You can't hide
Watch yourself

[Chrous]
Bring the dead body down
Bring the dead body down
Bring the dead body down
Bring the dead body down

[Bridge]
(Lord have mercy)
Lord don't have mercy for you
(Lord have mercy)
Lord don't have mercy for you
Watch yourself
(Lord have mercy)
Watch yourself
(Lord have mercy)
Watch yourself
(Lord have mercy)
Lord don't have mercy for you

[Chrous]
Bring the dead body down
(Lord have mercy)
Bring the dead body down
(Lord have mercy)
Bring the dead body down
(Lord have mercy)
Bring the dead body down

[Verse 3]
Wash the dead man clothes in the creek now, child
Wash the clothes till the creek turn red
Wash the dead man clothes in the creek now, child
Wash the clothes till the creek turn red

[Chrous]
Bring the dead body down
Watch yourself
Bring the dead body down
Watch yourself
Bring the dead body down
Watch yourself
Bring the dead body down
Watch yourself
Lord don't have mercy for you
Lord don't have mercy for you
Lord don't have mercy for you
