Ooooooooo....

On that evening
No later than nine
You called out for me
And heard no reply
You found me under the willow tree
Cut me down and tried to catch me
But I fell into the river deep
Ain't nothing more to do
But just let things be

I know you want to scatter my ashes
I know you want to scatter them far and wide
Don't scatter my ashes
I want to walk by the seaside

My lonely body washed ashore
Red ring around my leg shows I can't take it no more
Don't ask no one my soul to keep
Ain't nothing more to do but just let things be

I know you want to scatter my ashes
I know you want to scatter them far and wide
Don't scatter my ashes
I want to walk by the seaside

And you might cover me with
Sand and empty rocks
That might mean if you must
She won't wake up words
That come to rest, for you are still breathing
You...

You might get second thoughts
And want to throw me to the sky
That's okay, people you're wrong
'Cause you know that what's left of me
Is already gone
Is already gone
Its already gone...

I know you want to scatter my ashes
I know you want to scatter them far and wite
Don't scatter my ashes
I want to walk by the seaside

Ooooooooo...
