Sleeping In The Ground lyrics

By sam myers

I would rather see you sleeping in the ground,
I would rather see you sleeping in the ground
Than to stay around here if youre gonna put me down.

Well, I give you all my money, everything I own.
Well, I give you all my money, everything I own.
Well, some day Im gonna get lucky, and down the road you know Im goin.

Well, I would rather see you sleeping in the ground,
Well, I would rather see you sleeping in the ground
Than to stay around here if youre gonna put me down.

You know I give you all my money, yeah little girl, everything I own.
Well, I give you all my money, everything I own.
Well, today Im gonna get lucky, and down the road you know Im goin.
