Death Room Blues (Blind Willie McTell)

Tombstones is my pillow, cold grounds is my bed Tombstones is my pillow, cold grounds is my bed The blue skies is my blanket, and the moonlight is my spread Early one morning, death walked into my room Early one morning, death walked into my room Oh well it took my dear mother, early one morning soon She left me moanin' and cryin', moanin' like a turtledove She left me moanin' and cryin', moanin' like a turtledove Death walked in and got my dear mother, and the only friend I loved Mmmm..... eehh.... Cryin' Lord have mercy, and she was the only friend I loved Ever since my mother died and left me all alone Ever since my mother died and left me all alone All my friends have forsake me, people I haven't even got no home Mmmm... feel like moanin' and cryin' Mmmm... feel like moanin' and cryin' Death walked in a got my mother, and that was the only dear friend of mine
