Burn My Body  William Elliott Whitmore

[E]Burn my body in the [A]Northern[E] Field
[E]Let the wind blow the[A] ashes [E]around
[E]And then you will know that my w[A]ounds have been [E]healed
[E]Cause Lord I'll be [A]homeward [E]bound

[E]Let the flames warm your hands
Let the g[A]low light your [E]way
These gifts to [A]you I bes[E]tow
And noones listenin don't [A]bother to [E]pray
If you do lord [A]I'll never [E]know

[E]Well up and up the [A]smoke will [E]roll
Like a cloud of f[A]rightened c[E]rows
[E]To Carry my not so [A]immortal [E]soul
Up be[A]tween the [E]rows  [A]
[E]Up be[A]tween the [E]rows
[E]Burn my body in the [A]Northern [E]Field
[E]Let the wind blow the [A]ashes [E]around
[E]And then you will know that my [A]wounds have been [E]healed
[E]Cause lord I'll be [A]homeward [E]bound
[A]Oh [E]lord I'll be hom[A]eward [E]bound
[E]Some words that are said can [A]cut like a [E]saw
[E]My ears nearly [A]bled at the [E]sound
And I cant help prepare for the [A]springtime [E]thaw
cause lord ill be [A]homeward [E]bound
[E]And the frost turns to flowers
and they [A]all start to [E]bloom
and theres nothin [A]left to [E]hoe
well tip one back and [A]sing me a [E]tune
And never let the [A]fire grow [E]cold   [A]
[E]Never let the [A]fire grow [E]cold
[E]Burn my body in the [A]Northern [E]Field
[E]Let the wind blow the [A]ashes [E]around
[E]And then you will know that my [A]wounds have been [E]healed
[E]Cause lord I'll be [A]homeward [E]bound
[A]Oh [E]lord I'll be hom[A]eward [E]bound
