This is a traditional song, but I have rewritten the verses and kept the chorus.


Ain’t No Grave

Ain't no grave can hold my body down (4x)

And when you hear that trumpet sound
Kneel down and look for the little sprouts
No don't look for me up in those cotton clouds
For I'll be swaying in the queen anne's lace's crown

I'll be the clover growing up out of this mound
Rising up to the north and to the sunny south
I'll be the blue-eyed grass leaving you no doubt
That ain't no grave can hold my body down

Ain't no grave can hold my body down (4x)
