Fixin' to Die Blues
Bukka White Lyrics


I'm lookin' funny in my eyes and I believe I'm fixin' to die, believe I'm fixin' to die
I'm lookin' funny in my eyes and I believe I'm fixin' to die
I know I was born to die but I hate to leave my children cryin'

Just as sho' as we livin', just as sho' we born to die, sho' we born to die
Just as sho' as we livin', sho' we born to die
I know I was born to die but I hate to leave my children cryin'

Your mother treated me children like I was her baby child, was her baby child
Your mother treated me like I was her baby child
That's why's I find it so hard to come back home to die

So many nights at the fireside, how my children's mother would cry, how my children's mother would cry
So many nights at the fireside, how my children's mother would cry
Cause I told the mother I had to say goodbye

Look over yonder, on the burying ground, on the burying ground
Look over yonder, on the burying ground
Yon' stand ten thousand, standin' still to let me down

Mother take my children back, before they let me down, before they let me down
Mother take my children back, 'fore they let me down
I don't need for them to screamin' and cryin' on the graveyard ground

@Keith Peterson I hope so because it's annoying when they put the wrong lyrics and even worst when they put the wrong title or artist

Keith Peterson

Maybe the person who posted the video and lyrics, will notice sometime that they have the wrong lyrics, and correct it.

Clowntrooper

@Keith Peterson Oh right

The first time I heard this song I played it over and over again.

There is it folks....the roots of rock and roll. The Rossetta Stone of rock, I can hear the Stones, Zeppelin and even the Stooges in that blues song.
