Oh, bury me right where I fall
Don't carry me home to my mom
I'd not have her see me go down
So bury me right where I fall

Shovel the dirt on my face
The angels of earth cover me
The rain will come down on this place
So shovel the dirt on my face

Oh, The wind will fall
And the blackbird will dance with the worm
Oh, The moon will call
And the black snake she swallows the world

Now don't take my boots when I'm down
Leave them with me like a song
Oh, the waters of hell run so strong
So don't take my boots when I'm gone

Oh, here where the river runs home
Is where I will lay on my bones
Oh, the words lay by Christ on his throne
Here where the river runs home

Oh, the wind will fall
And the blackbird will dance with the worm
Oh, The moon will call
And the black snake she swallows the world
