This song is a cover of "Sleeping in the Ground" by ​Sam Myers.
I would rather see you
Sleepin' in the ground
I would rather see you
Sleepin' in the ground
Than to be around here
Knowing you're gonna put me down

Well I gave you all my money
Girl, and every thing that I own
Well I gave you all my money
Little girl, and every thing that I own
Well one day I'm gonna get lucky
And down the road, I'm going

I would rather see you
Sleepin' in the ground
I would rather see you
Sleepin' in the ground
Than to be around here
Knowing you're gonna put me down
