I'm not scared of dying, and I don't really care.
D       A         D       A      D         E
If it's peace you find in dying, well then let
    D       A
the time be near.
        G                 D           G     D
If it's peace you find in dying, when dying time
   E11
is here, 
     Bm7    C#m7  D       E          A    D        A
Just bundle up my coffin, cause it's cold way down there.
  D              A    D        A            D    C#m Bm 
I hear that it's cold way down there. Yeah, cra..zy  cold

way down there.

And when I die, and when I'm gone,
            D   C#m   Bm7
there'll be one child born
       E11                         A  D A D A D A D
and a  world to carry on, to carry on.

#2.
D  A   D        A     D          A    D    A
My troubles are many, they're as deep as a well.
D     A           D        A      D     E
I can swear there ain't no heaven and I pray 
      D        A
there ain't no hell.
      G                    D           G
I can swear there ain't no heaven and  pray there

ain't no hell,
         Bm7   C#m7    D       E       A  D       A
But I'll never know by living, only my dying will tell.
D       A  D       A     D       A  D       A
Only my dying will tell. Only my dying will tell.

CHORUS:
Bm7        C#m7 F#m7         A7
And when I die, and when I'm gone,
            D   C#m   Bm7
there'll be one child born

Give me my freedom for as long as I be.
A     D      A      D     E       D         A
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,
    Bm7   C#m7   D     E     A  D      A
And all I ask of dying is to go naturally.
D            A  D      A
Only want to go naturally.
A
Here I go. Hey Hey!
                      D     A
Here comes the devil. Right Behind.
A        D    A    D       A
Look out children. Here he comes!
D       A      D    A
Here he comes! Hey...

#4.
A     D       A         D  A
Don't want to go by the devil.
A     D       A     D  A
Don't want to go by demon.
A     D       A     D  A
Don't want to go by Satan,
A     D    A      D A
Don't want to die uneasy.
A           D         A
Just let me go naturally.

there'll be one child born
       E11                         A  D A D A D A D
and a  world to carry on, to carry on.

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.
