Artist: Hank Williams on the 10 CD Boxset CD 8 Track 19
Writer: Hank Williams

We're Getting Closer to the Grave Each Day


Key: E

Oh (E)don't you know that (A)Jesus (E)died 
To wash your sins a(B7)way
So please (E)heed His call, in (A)sin don't (E)fall
We're getting closer to the (B7)grave each (E)day

We're getting (A)closer to the grave each (E)day
Mortal man won't you stop now and (B7)pray
Leave the (E)road of sin alone, let (A)Jesus lead you (E)home
We're getting closer to the (B7)grave each (E)day

They nailed His hands, they (A)pierced His (E)sides
On His head the thorns did (B7)lay
Be pre(E)pared to go, one (A)thing we (E)know
We're getting closer to the (B7)grave each (E)day

On the judgement day, when the (A)book is (E)read
There'll be no use to (B7)pray
So each (E)day you live, (A)love and for(E)give
We're getting closer to the (B7)grave each (E)day
