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.
[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
