When they put him in the ground
Your family was all around
The whole town came to see him off


Oh I
Just don't know
Where people go
When they die

But I
Think your mother cried
When your grandpa died
Somewhere in Iowa

So drink some beers
From your uncle's car
In the parking lot
Of the store he owns

Then come back to us
In Minneapolis
We are waiting here
For this to become clear

And when you come home
Your friends are here
All around

And in this town
We are not alone

So we will jump sing scream and dance
And all happiness and happenstance
But we don't know
Where we're going

But I
Just don't know
Where people go
When they die

But I
Know that I will cry
Oh, when you die
Somewhere

So let's drink some beers
On our kitchen floor
Then on the telephones
We'll say all the things
We mean to say

Like come back to us
In Minneapolis
We are waiting here
For this to become clear
