Away Out on the Saint Sabbath

A- - E - A

[A]Away out on the old saint Sabbath

Lay down to [D]take my [A]rest

My knapsack for my pillow

And my E]gun upon my c[A]hest

Please dont [E]bury me on the lonesome [A]prairie

Please dont [E]bury me on the lone [A]prairie

You can bury me in the east

You can [D]bury me in the west

Please dont [E]bury me on the lone [A]prairie

+ A - D - A        - A - E - A

My father he lies sleeping

Beneath the deep blue sea

I have no father no mother

There's none but hell and me

+ CHORUS    + A - - E - A

My mother she lies sleeping

Beneath the church yard rocks

Her body lies there moldering

And her spirit has gone to God

+ CHORUS
