Last Kind Words Blues

Alison Krauss & Robert Plant

The last kind words I heard my daddy say
Lord, the last kind words I heard my daddy say

"If I die, if I die in the German war
I want you to send my body, send it to my mother, Lord"

"If I get killed, if I get killed, please don't bury my soul
I prefer you leave me out, let the buzzards eat me whole"

When you see me comin' look 'cross the rich man's field
If I don't bring you flour I'll bring you bolted meal

I went to the depot, I looked up at the sun
Cried, some train don't come, therе'll be some walkin' done

My mama told mе just before she died
Lord, precious daughter, don't you be so wild

The Mississippi river, you know it's deep and wide
I can stand right here, see my babe from the other side

What you do to me baby never gets out of me
I may not see you after I cross the deep blue sea
