Lyr Add: And When I Die (Laura Nyro) (7) And When I Die 14 Jan 00


Peter, Paul and Mary did this. Mary sang lead, and did a nice job. don't think her voice can handle a song like this any more.

AND WHEN I DIE
(Laura Nyro)


And when I die, and when I'm dead, dead and gone,
There'll be one child born,
And a world to carry on.
There'll be one child born 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.


Chorus:


And when I die, and when I'm gone,
There'll be one child born and
A world to carry on.
There'll be one child born 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.
I can swear there ain't no heaven and I pray there ain't no hell,
But I'll never know by living, only my dying will tell.


Chorus


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.
