Lonesome day

They carried my girl to the burying ground
They carried my girl to the burying ground
They carried my girl to the burying ground
I watched her as they laid her down

    Today has been a lonesome day
    Today has been a lonesome day
    Today has been a lonesome day
    And tommorrow gonna be the same old way

Go big my grave with a silver spade
Go big my grave with a silver spade
Go big my grave with a silver spade
And mark the plce where I'll be laid

  *Refrain

Dig you ever here a church bell toll
Dig you ever here a church bell toll
Dig you ever here a church bell toll
You'll know by that I'm dead and gone

  *Refrain
