I'll be with them asleep and dreaming
I'll be there when they wake with screaming
At the hour of death then I will nurse them
To have a moment more to curse them
Watch the maggots crawl out of them
Hear the angels call above them
Watch them as the cold air sucks them
Down to hell, goodnight, God love them
If any should escape above me
Beg and cheat until they trust me
Drag them down to be damned with me
Laugh at them as they forgive me

Sober wrote:On what album was this recorded? I know it is on Shane and the Popes' Rare Oul' Stuff but I was surprised to see that it was a Pogues song. I didn't manage to find on which album/EP the Pogues recorded this. Anybody can help? I think this song is great, does anybody agree?
