Cyrus Jones, 1810 to 1913. 

F                                         Am
Made his, great grandchildren believe you could live to a hundred & three.

  Am                             Am2
Well, a hundred & three is forever when you're just a little kid

F                     Am
So, Cyrus Jones lived forever.


[Chorus]

Am
Gravedigger

              Am2
When you dig my grave.

                  E
Could you make it shallow.

        Am    Am2      D/G
So that I can feel the rain.

     Am
Gravedigger.


[Verse 2]

Muriel Stonewall, 1903 to 1954.

 F                                          Am
Lost both of her babies, in the second great war.

               Am                                      Am2  
Now you should never have to watch as your only children are lowered in the 


ground.

   F                                 Am
You should, never have to bury your own babies.


[Chorus]
(Add a few extra quickly timed hammers on the Am to go into the bridge.)

Am
Gravedigger

              Am2
When you dig my grave.

                  E
Could you make it shallow.

        Am    Am2      D/G
So that I can feel the rain.

     Am
Gravedigger.


[Verse 3]

Dm             F        C    G A
Ring around the rosie.

Dm            F         C    G A
Pocket full of posey.

Dm       F       C     G A
Ashes to ashes.

Dm     F      C           G
              We all fall down.

[Chorus]

Am
Gravedigger

              Am2
When you dig my grave.

                  E
Could you make it shallow.

        Am    Am2      D/G
So that I can feel the rain.

     Am
Gravedigger.

Little Mikey Carson, 67 to 75.

         F                              Am
Rode his, bike like the devil until the day he died.

             Am                                  Am2               
When he grows up he wants to be Mr. Vertigo on the flying trapeez, oh, well.

F        Am
1940 to 1990---2!

Gravedigger

              Am2
When you dig my grave.

                  E

So that I can feel the rain.

     Am
Gravedigger.


Am                           Am2
Gravedigger, when you dig my grave. 

                  E
Could you make it shallow.

       Am              Am2        D/G
So that I can feel the rain, I can feel the rain, oh. 

Am                         Am2
Gravedigger, when you dig my grave.

                  E (Let ring)
Could you make it shallow.

        Am   Am2    D/G
So that I can feel the rain.

Am         Am2  F  E
Gravegigger.

The A's in the the little bridge are supposed to labeled A#. Sorry about that.

Ok, you have the right chords, just the wrong chord names! Your Am2 is actually Am/G, the D/G should be Dsus2/F#. Very good ear though, you should check out some theory, you could be quite good.

e 0
B 0
