I told you on the day we wed
I was gonna love you till I’s dead
Made you wait till our weddin’ night
That’s the first and the last time I’ll wear white
*huff*
So if the ties that bind ever do come loose
Tie ‘em in a knot like a hangman’s noose.
‘Cause I’ll go to heaven or I’ll go to hell
Before I see you with someone else

Chorus
Put me in the ground
And put me six foot down
And let the stone say
Here lies the girl whose only crutch was loving one man just a little too much
If you go before I do,
I’m gonna tell the grave digger that he better dig two!

Well it won’t be whiskey
It won’t be meth
It will be your name on my last breath
If the voice of death ever do us part
The coroner will call it a broken heart

Chorus
So put me in the ground
Put me six foot down
And let the stone say
Here lies the girl whose only crutch was loving one man a little too much
If you go before I do
I’m gonna tell the grave digger that he better dig two
Dig two

I took your name when I took those vows
I meant ‘em back then and I mean ‘em right now
Oh right now

If the ties that bind ever do come loose
If forever ever ends for you
If that ring gets a little too tight
Might as well read me my last rights

And let the stone say
Here lies the girl whose only crutch was loving one man just a little too much
If you go before I do
Gonna tell the grave digger that he better dig
Hey!
There'll be a stone right next to mine
We’ll be together till the end of time
Don’t you go before I do
Gonna tell the grave digger that he better dig two

I told you on the day we wed
I was gonna love you till I’s dead.

    WOW....Was on my way to the hospital to pick up my Aunt from her two day stay, (she's OK), and the beat got my attention, so I turned it up. The words gave me chills. I LOVE IT! If we could all love like this and not settle for anything less than respect in a marriage, just maybe VOWS for a lifetime would return TO OUR BROKEN HOMES. LOVE ALL YOUR MUSIC.

    This song represents a woman loving her man literally to death she will do all she can to stay with him. If he dies before she does, she will be nothing without him and will kill herself to be with him forever. Her love is deep. She is afraid of being lonely. Forever they will stay together... "til death do us part", I would probably do the same for the one I loved unconditionally. It's not about being violent, the song itself is not saying that you must commit suicide to keep the one you love, it's just saying that's how some of us would feel if we lost something unbearably important. Love will always be eternal, no matter how much you try you will never forget the one that came in your life and made you feel something you'll never forget... No matter how bad they treat you.. they will always be your love, for either what you had in the beginning before it turned disastrous... I know I will never forget... Or tell anyone how it haunts my heart everyday. I love him and always will. We are nothing without love, and love is being washed always slowly these days...

    This song seems to encourage 'murder and/or suicide' and has an unhealthy message of violence laced throughout. How can anyone advocate this kind of violence.
