When I was a growing boy
Rockin' on my daddy's knee
Daddy took an old guitar and sang
"Bury me on the lone prairie"

My uncle Bob sat at the piano
My girl cousins sang harmony
Those were the good old family times
That left a big mark on me

Bury me out on the prairie
Where the buffalo used to roam
You won't have to shed a tear for me
Cause then I won't be far from home

Walkin' Down the Trans Canada Highway
I was talkin' to a firefly
Tryin' to make my way to Nashville Tennessee
When another car passed me by

Bury me out on the prairie
Where the Buffalo used to roam
Where the Canada geese once filled the sky
And then I won't be far from home

Bury me out on the prairie
Where the buffalo used to roam
You won't have to shed a tear for me
Cause then I won't be far from home
