Just bundle up my coffin, cause it's cold way down there.

My troubles are many, they're as deep as a well.

Only my dying will tell. Only my dying will tell.

All I ask of living is to have no chains on me.
G            D            G       D         E11
All I ask of living is to have no chains on me,

And all I ask of dying is to go naturally.

Only want to go naturally.

SKUX: Yeah, I gotta agree, it's in A but this seems overly complicated doesn't it?

I just played this through with the
original record and it sounds OK to me.
And it is in key of A so I don't
understand, why the confusion? And
"overly complicated???"..it's the way it is..KK.

I want to post or [tab]
