[Intro]
A#5/F C5/G    A#5/F  C5/G    A#5/F  C5/G    A#5/F   (2x) 

[Verse]
A#5/F                C5/G 
Boys workin on empty
A#5/F                                           C5/G 
Is that the kinda way to face the burning heat?
A#5/F                      C5/G 
I just think about my baby
A#5/F                     
I'm so full of love I could barely eat
A#5/F                                C5/G 
There's nothing sweeter than my baby
A#5/F                                  C5/G
I never want once from the cherry tree
A#5/F                           C5/G
Cause my baby's sweet as can be
A#5/F  
She give me toothaches just from kissin me

[Chorus]
Gm      Fmaj                
When, my, time comes around
A#/F                               Cm/G
....Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
Gm              Fmaj
...No grave can hold my body down
A#/F
....I'll crawl home to her

[Verse 2]
A#5/F                            C5/G 
....That's when my baby found me
A#5/F                            C5/G 
I was three days on a drunken sin
A#5/F                              C5/G 
...I woke with her walls around me
A#5/F               
Nothin in her room but an empty crib
A#5/F                            C5/G 
.....And I was burnin up a fever
  A#5/F                            C5/G 
I didn't care much how long I lived
A#5/F                                   C5/G 
.....But I swear I thought I dreamed her
    A#5/F               
She never asked me once about the wrong I did

[Chorus]
Gm      Fmaj                
When, my, time comes around
A#/F                               Cm/G
....Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
Gm              Fmaj
...No grave can hold my body down
A#/F
....I'll crawl home to her

[Chorus]
Gm      Fmaj                
When, my, time comes around
A#/F                               Cm/G
....Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
Gm              Fmaj
...No grave can hold my body down
A#/F
....I'll crawl home to her

[Verse 3]
A#5/F                        C5/G 
.....My baby never fret none
 A#5/F                               C5/G 
About what my hands and my body done
A#5/F                             C5/G 
.....If the Lord don't forgive me
    A#5/F                                        C5/G 
I'd still have my baby and my babe would have me
A#5/F                              C5/G 
.....When I was kissing on my baby
    A#5/F                               C5/G 
And she put her love down soft and sweet
A#5/F                         C5/G 
....In the lowland plot I was free

Heaven and hell were words to me

[Chorus]
Gm      Fmaj                
When, my, time comes around
A#/F                               Cm/G
....Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
Gm              Fmaj
...No grave can hold my body down
A#/F
....I'll crawl home to her

[Chorus]
Gm      Fmaj                
When, my, time comes around
A#/F                               Cm/G
....Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
Gm              Fmaj
...No grave can hold my body down
A#/F
....I'll crawl home to her

[Outro]
A#5/F   C5/G  A#5/F   C5/G  A#5/F

The base notes on A#5 and C5 are perfect. I added them to the whole cords playing A#/F and Cm/G and I like the sounds of the fuller chords with those modified base notes as well. Thanks for the tab,cj
