"No One Knows I'm Gone" as written by and Tom Waits Kathleen Brennan....
Hell above and heaven below
All the trees are gone
The rain has such a lovely sound
To those who are six feet under ground
The leaves will bury every year
And no one knows I'm gone

Live me golden tell me dark
Hide from Graveyard John
The moon is full here every night
And I can bathe here in his light
The leaves will bury every year
And no one knows I'm gone

    General CommentUnbelievably beautiful.
    Scarlett’s version is more cheerful than Tom's and grander in its scale.
    It's a bit more dreamy and quite haunting.
    But Tom Wait's version, though more theatrical, is superior.
    No on can sing a song with as much pain and melancholy as Tom Waits.
    His version just KILLS me. It’s hurts when I hear it. That’s how beautiful it is.!
