Dig Two Graves

Intro :  C  G/B  Am G F

(Verse 1)
           C              G/B
I promised you, on the day we wed
Am                 G                   F
’Till death do us part, yeah that was what I said
                C                G/B
But things have changed, since I made that vow
Am                  G               F
The love I felt for you is so much deeper now
   Dm                     G
So I’ve made up my mind

(Verse 2)
                 C            G/B
When the family sings, Sweet By and By
     Am               G              F
They might as well go on and tell us both good-bye
                       C            G/B
Because you've come to be my heart and soul
   Am                  G                   F
The air I breathe, the reason there’s life in these bones
   Dm                     G
So I’ve made up my mind, girl if it’s your time

(Chorus 1)
                  C                   F
They can dig two graves, just carve one stone
               Am                    G
Cause without you here, I won't last long
                F      G                     Am
Your love’s the blood running through these veins
                   F       G               C
So if He calls you home, they can dig two graves

(Bridge)
G                               F             C
Surely the good Lord won’t ask me to be that strong
G                                   Dm           F
Because it kills me just to think about you being gone

(Chorus 2)
                  C                  F
They can dig two graves, just carve one stone
                 Am                   G
Cause without you here, I won't last long
                 F       G                  Am
Your love’s the blood running through these veins
                  F       G                C
So if He calls you home, they can dig two graves
              F       G         Am
Tell the Lord above, no need to wait
                    F     G                 C
So if He calls you home, they can dig two graves
