Will You Miss Me When I’m Gone

 

When [D]death shall close these eyelids,

and this [G]heart shall cease to [D]beat,

and they lay me down to rest

[A]in some flowery-[A7]bound re[D]treat.

CH

[D]Will you miss me (miss me when I'm gone) ?

[G]Will you [D]miss me (miss me when I'm gone) ?

Will you miss me (miss me when I'm gone) ?

[A]Will you miss me [A7]when I'm [D]gone ?

 

Perhaps you'll plant a flower

on my poor, unworthy grave.

Come and sit alone beside me,

when the roses nod and wave.   + CHORUS

 

One sweet thought my soul shall cherish,

when this fleeting life has flown,

this sweet thought will cheer when dying,

will you miss me when I'm gone.   + CHORUS

 

When these lips shall never more

press a kiss upon thy brow,

but lie cold and still in death,

will you love me then as now.   + CHORUS
