Won't you spare me over til another year?
Well what is this that I can't see
With ice cold hands takin' hold of me.
Well, I am Death, none can excel
I'll open the door to heaven or hell.
Whoa Death, someone would pray
Could you wait to call me another day?
The children prayed, the preacher preached
Time and mercy is out of your reach
I'll fix your feet til you can't walk
I'll lock your jaw til you can't talk
I'll close your eyes so you can't see
This very air, come and go with me
I'm Death, I come to take the soul
Leave the body and leave it cold
To draw the flesh up off the frame
Dirt and worms both have a claim.
Won't you spare me over til another year
My mother came to my bed
Placed a cold towel upon my head
My head is warm, my feet are cold
Death is a-movin' upon my soul
Oh Death how you're treatin' me
You've closed my eyes so I can't see
Well you're hurtin' my body
You make me cold
You run my life right outta my soul
Oh Death please consider my age
Please don't take me at this stage
My wealth is all at your command
If you move your icy hand
Oh the young, the rich or poor
Hunger like me you know
No wealth, no ruin, no silver, no gold
Nothing satisfies me but your soul.
