Lyrics

Wake Me Up When I’m Gone Michael Sullivan 4/18/20


E
I dreamed I was born, in a shack out back
Mama went crazy, buried her in burlap sack
Papa looked around, said son…here…we’re not dying
Gonna find freedom, or we’ll die tryin

E A G E A G E
Wake Me Up When I’m Gone , Wake Me Up When I’m Gone 2X

E
We left that slave holding man, round midnight
Cross the Mississippi, to St. Louis
Papa, raised me strong, but lord this world is hard
If this is hell, I’d rather wake up in heaven

E A G E A G E
Wake Me Up When I’m Gone , Wake Me Up When I’m Gone 2X

I was a blacksmith striker
Slinging that sledgehammer down
Born a slave, still never an easy day
If I’m dying, I just wanna say….
If this is hell, I’d rather wake up in heaven

E A G E A G E
Wake Me Up When I’m Gone , Wake Me Up When I’m Gone 2X


E
Lying in this bed, knowing somethings goin round
Everybody’s crying, shouting the world comin down
People wailing mercy, wailing mercy
All I’m thinking, through all this shouting..
If this is hell, I’d rather wake up in heaven


E A G E A G E
Wake Me Up When I’m Gone , Wake Me Up When I’m Gone 2X
E
Wake Me up, when I’m gone, wake me up, wake me up, wake me up when I’m gone, When I’m gone, Wake me up,
