My Final Resting

Recommended Posts

I'm just in the processes of writing the tune, nothing recorded yet.

 

Always in the editing mode when writing songs.

 

 

My Final Resting Place- By Mikeo

G

Working like a dog in the mid-day sun

C

Where the working day is never done

G

Burning blisters, with a shovel in my hands

C D G

A hard days work will kill a man

 

 

Chorus

C

Lord take away the pain

G D

You know I can’t go on this way

C G D

Put me in the ground and take me away

C D G

to my final resting place

 

Digging for gold for an honest wage

Searching for the truth, on a dollar a day

From Sunrise to sunset, to live another day

there’s got to be a better way

 

No whiskey water, been there before

Have a little mercy when I get heavens doors

Working my way to those pearly gates

I get down on my knees and I pray.

Good one, in the tradition of "Sixteen Tons" and "Chain Gang" and "Aragon Mill" and "The L&M Doesn't Stop Here Anymore."

Sounds pretty solid.

I added at the end:

 

I pray every day

I pray every day

That she'll be

Coming my way

Hm. Who's "she"? There's no woman in the song. I don't think it follows.

She is "Mother Earth".
