One Dyin' and a Buryin' Roger Miller
written by Roger Miller
(First verse/chorus: key of E)
[D]Well, I think I finally found me a sure-fire way to forget
It's so simple, I'm surprised I hadn't done thought of it before yet
It's foolproof - well, it's foolhardy, maybe, but who knows
Anyway, here I am walking toward where the cold dark water flows
Causes all it takes is
One dying and a [G]buryin'
[A]One dying and a b[D]uryin'
Some cryin[G]g, six carrying [Bm-Am]me
I wanna be [D]free
(Second verse/chorus: Key of C)
Oh...[Bb]I wanna be free
[Bb]Free from all this heartache and regret
And free from pining for the love I can't forget
The love that once was warm and then just somehow turned to hate
Made my life a prison from which there's only one escape, and that's:
One dying and a [E7]buryin'
[F]One dying and a b[Bb]uryin'
Some cry[E7]in' six carryin' [Dm-Fm]me
I wanna be [Bb]free
