You got to bury, bury
Bury your dyin' mother
Bury your dyin' mother
in the ground, ground, ground

Because one day, one day
One day she'll be singin'
up in the sky, sky, sky

Well one day, sister
One day your baby sister
One day your sister, she went to the river
and drowned, drowned, drowned

But one day, one day
One day she'll be dancin'
up in the sky, sky, sky

Well your father, he was lonely
your father was a drunk and lonely
your father was a drunk and lonely
said he had a terrible mouth

But one day, one day
He'll be dancin with the devil down below

Between the prophets and the Judas
there runs a river murky
there runs a river murky
said it's over ten miles wide

And we can meet out in the middle
and we can swim on up that river
'till we die, die, die
