"Last Kind Words Blues" lyrics - ROBERT PLANT & ALISON KRAUSS

"Last Kind Words Blues"

[Verse 1: Alison Krauss]
The last kind words I heard my daddy say
Lord, the last kind words I heard my daddy say

[Verse 2: Alison Krauss & Robert Plant]
"If I die, if I die in the German war
I want you to send my body, send it to my mother, Lord"

[Verse 3: Alison Krauss & Robert Plant]
"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"

[Verse 4: Alison Krauss]
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

[Verse 5: Alison Krauss]
I went to the depot, I looked up at the sun
Cried, some train don't come, there'll be some walkin' done

[Verse 6: Alison Krauss]
My mama told me just before she died
Lord, precious daughter, don't you be so wild

[Verse 7: Alison Krauss & Robert Plant]
The Mississippi river, you know it's deep and wide
I can stand right here, see my babe from the other side

[Verse 8: Alison Krauss & Robert Plant]
What you do to me baby never gets out of me
I may not see you after I cross the deep blue sea
