O, Death,
O, Death,
Won't you spare me over til another year?
Well, what is this that I can't see
With ice cold hands takin' hold of me?
Well, I am Death, none can excel,
I'll open the door to heaven or hell.
Whoa, Death , someone would pray,
Could you wait to call me another day?
The children prayed, the preacher preached,
Time and mercy is out of your reach.
I'll fix your feet so you can't walk.
I'll lock your jaw so you can't talk.
I'll close your eyes so you can't see.
This very hour, come and go with me.
I'm Death; I come to take the soul,
Leave the body and leave it cold,
To drop the flesh off of the frame;
The earth and worm both have a claim.
O, Death,
O, Death,
Won't you spare me over til another year?
My mother came to my bed,
Placed a cold towel upon my head.
My head is warm, my feet are cold.
Death is a-movin upon my soul.
Oh, Death how you're treating me.
You've closed my eyes so I can't see.
Well, you're hurting my body,
You make me cold.
You run my life right out of my soul.
Oh, Death please consider my age.
Please don't take me at this stage.
My wealth is all at your command
If you will move your icy hand.
Oh, the young, the rich or poor
Hunger like me you know.
No wealth, no land, no silver, no gold
Nothing satisfies me but your soul.
O, Death,
O, Death,
Won't you spare me over til another year?
Won't you spare me over til another year?
Won't you spare me over til another year?
