When my heart stops/ pumping blood
When my breath quits/ and I know that it’s real
Don’t carry me/ a-top majestic mountains
Bury me beneath the killin’ fields

When my eyes fade away
When my spirit leaves and all my sins revealed
When the funeral fire gets done burnin’
Bury me beneath the killing fields

Bury me, oh bury me/ bury me, Lord, Lord bury me
Lay my soul, lay my pride/ where my people fought and died
Bury me beneath the killin’ fields

When my days don’t come no more/ death come knocking at my door
Bury me beneath the killing fields
When you hear the death bells roar/ from a politician’s war
Bury me beneath the killing fields
When my voice no longer sounds/ and my families gather ‘round
Bury me beneath the killing fields
When my heart no longer pounds/ and the reaper’s coming down
Bury me beneath the killing fields
Where my people lived as slaves/ came and left without a name
Bury me beneath the killing fields
With the warriors that came/ lived and died upon the plains
Bury me beneath the killing fields
