Peter, Paul & Mary – And When I Die lyrics

Refrain:
And when I die, and when I'm dead, dead and gone,
There'll be one child born and a world to carry on,
There'll be one child born to carry on.

I'm not scared of dyin' and I don't really care
If it's peace you find in dyin', well, then let the time be near;
If it's peace you find in dying, when dyin' time is here,
Just bundle up my coffin, cause it's cold way down there.

(Refrain)

My troubles are many, they're as deep as a well,
I can swear there ain't no heaven, but I pray there ain't no hell.
Swear there ain't no heaven, pray there ain't no hell,
But I'll never know by livin', only my dyin' will tell
Only my dyin' will tell.

(Refrain)

Give me my freedom, for as long as I be,
All I ask of livin' is to have no chains on me.
All I ask I of livin' is to have no chains on me,
And all I ask of dyin' is to go naturally
I only wanna go naturally.

And when I die, and when I'm gone,
There'll be one child born and a world to carry on,
There'll be one child born to carry on.
Comin' as I go, and a world to carry on.
There'll be one child born to carry on.
