There was a old man on the land he carried a gun in his hand

He said listen to me son while I tell you one time

A long, long time ago before the rail and the roads they came

Up behind the church on the road a bunch of outlaws slowly rode

After robbing the town of all the money and gold

They took the preachers wife and disappeared along the road

He said before you lay me down he said before you lay me down

Bury me deep in the ground under an old oak tree and say a prayer for me

Now when the preacher found out he said prayer in his house

Then he went to his barn he got dressed and then armed

Jumped onto his horse to look for those men on the run

He said before you lay me down he said before you lay me down

Bury me deep in the ground under an old oak tree and say a prayer for me

When the preacher caught up they’d made a fire and were drunk

As he approached he saw his wife with two men before they even knew

He shot them all down to the ground

He said before you lay me down he said before you lay me down

Bury me deep in the ground under an old oak tree and say a prayer for me



Before you lay me down before you lay me down bury me deep in the ground

Under an old oak tree and say a prayer for me
