When I'm Gone

VERSE:
He said when I’m laid to rest
Mary put your picture on my chest
Dress me in my favorite shirt and polish my old boots
Give that belt buckle a real nice shine
But don’t send me off in a coat and tie
Leave the blue jeans on. Never felt right in a suit

CHORUS:
And when I’m gone
It don’t have to mean goodbye
When I’m gone,
I’m gonna’ be right by your side
Even though you won’t see or hear
I will still be near
I’ll be watchin’ over you when I’m gone.

VERSE:
Tell our grandson not to cry
‘Cause real cowboys never show that side
But if that don’t work, tell him it’s alright
And beg the preacher don’t take too long
Cause folks round here don’t get much time off
Just let ‘em all have a beer and call it a night

CHORUS:
And when I’m gone
It don’t have to mean goodbye
When I’m gone,
I’m gonna’ be right by your side
Even though you won’t see or hear
I will still be near
I’ll be watchin’ over you when I’m gone.

BRIDGE
Set my horse every once in a while
Unbridle that boy and let him run wild
He’ll know just where to roam
And he won’t be alone

VERSE:
Maybe I never told you enough
But baby I knew how lucky I was
Every day when I prayed I thanked the Lord
You’ll always be my beautiful girl
Mary, I love you, you were my whole world.
I could never have asked for anything more.

CHORUS:
And when I’m gone
It don’t have to mean goodbye
When I’m gone,
I’m gonna’ be right by your side
Even though you won’t see or hear
I will still be near
I’ll be watchin’ over you when I’m gone.

TAG:
Mary I’ll be watchin’ over you when I’m gone.
