Lyrics
I've got a babe but shall I keep him
'Twill come the day when I'll be weepin'
But how can I love him any less
This little babe upon my breast

You can take my body
You can take my bones
You can take my blood
But not my soul

You can take my body
You can take my bones
You can take my blood
But not my soul

I've got a body dark and strong
I was young but not for long
You took me to bed a little girl
Left me in a woman's world

You can take my body
You can take my bones
You can take my blood
But not my soul

You can take my body
You can take my bones
You can take my blood
But not my soul

Day by day I work the line
Every minute overtime
Fingers nimble, fingers quick
My fingers bleed to make you rich

You can take my body
You can take my bones
You can take my blood
But not my soul

You can take my body
You can take my bones
You can take my blood
But not my soul

You can take my body (you can take my body)
You can take my bones (take my bones)
You can take my blood (take my blood)
But not my soul (not my soul)

Take my body (take my body)
You can take my bones (take my bones)
You can take my blood (take my blood)
But not my soul (not my soul)
