"One Dyin' And A Buryin'" as written by and Miller....
Well, I think I finally found me a sure-fire way to forget
It's so simple, I'm surprised I hadn't done thought of it before yet
It's foolproof, well, it's foolhardy, maybe, but who knows?
Anyway, here I am, walkin' down toward where the cold dark water flows
All it takes is

One dyin' and a buryin', one dyin' and a buryin'
Some cryin', six carryin' me
I wanna be free
Oh-ho, I want to be free

Free from all this heartache and regret
And free from pinin' for the love I can't forget
The love that once was warm and then just somehow turned to hate
Made my life a prison from which there's only one escape
That's

One dyin' and a buryin', one dyin' and a buryin'
Some cryin', six carryin' me, I wanna be free
One dyin' and a buryin', one dyin' and a buryin'
Some cryin', six carryin' me, I wanna be free

    General Commentone of the smoothest smokiest choruses ever sung... damn i wish i was around to see roger live... anyway... the references to "prison" and "escape" make me think this is a song about suicide... the lines about the "walking towards cold dark water" and "a sure fire way to forget" really substantiate the suicide reference... he's so upset over lost love that suicide is the only way to ease his pain
