Jar of Clay

Capo 1
[Em] Children do not weep for me
When you [D] hear I'm dead and [Em] gone
[C] In the Savior's arms I'll [G]be
[D] Just like I told you all [Em] along

When my soul leaves this earth
And you go to put me in the ground
Dig a place out of the dirt
Say a prayer and lay my body down

[C] Make my coffin straight [G] and long
[F#m] Wood that rots and nails that [Em] rust
[C] Oh when my spirit's [G] gone
[D] Let this jar of clay return to [Em] dust

So do not seal me in a vault
Or buy a tomb to lay me in
Flesh and bone were met to rot
And go back to the earth again

Chorus x 2

Let this jar of clay return to dust (repeat twice)
