Last Kind Words Blues Lyrics by Robert Plant & Alison Krauss

 

The last kind words I heard my daddy say
Lord, the last kind words I heard my daddy say

If I die, if I die in the German war
I want you to send my body, send it to my mother, Lord

If I get killed, if I get killed, please don’t bury my soul
I prefer you leave me out, let the buzzards eat me whole

When you see me comin’, look ‘cross the rich man’s field
If I don’t bring you flour, I’ll bring you bolted meal

I went to the depot, I looked up at the sun
Cried some train don’t come, there’ll be some walkin’ done

My mama told me, just before she died
Lord, precious daughter, don’t you be so wild

The Mississippi river, you know it’s deep and wide
I can stand right here, see my babe from the other side

What you do to me baby, it never gets outta me
I may not see you after I cross the deep blue sea
