Hozier – Work Song Lyrics

Boys workin’ on empty
Is that the kinda way to face the burning heat?1
I just think about my baby
I’m so full of love I could barely eat2
There’s nothing sweeter than my baby3
I’d never want once from the cherry tree
‘Cause my baby’s sweet as can be
She give me toothaches just from kissin’ me4

When, my, time5 comes around
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth6
No grave can hold my body down
I’ll crawl home to her7

That’s when my baby found me
I was three days on a drunken sin8
I woke with her walls around me
Nothin’ in her room but an empty crib9
And I was burnin’ up a fever
I didn’t care much how long I lived10
But I swear I thought I dreamed her
She never asked me once about the wrong I did11

When, my, time comes around
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
No grave can hold my body down
I’ll crawl home to her

When, my, time comes around
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
No grave can hold my body down
I’ll crawl home to her

My baby never fret none12
About what my hands and my body done13
If the Lord don’t forgive me
I’d still have my baby and my babe would have me14
When I was kissing on my baby
And she put her love down soft and sweet15
In the lowland plot I was free
Heaven and hell were words to me16

When, my, time comes around
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
No grave can hold my body down
I’ll crawl home to her

When, my, time comes around
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
No grave can hold my body down
I’ll crawl home to her
