(This is 'The Occidental Saloon' Video Version)

Lay you head
Where my heart used to be
Hold the earth above me
Lay down on the green grass
And remember when you loved me

Now come closer don't be shy
Stand beneath a rainy sky
'Cause the moon, it is over the rise
Picture me as a train rolls by

Clear the thistles and brambles
Oh whistle didn't he ramble
Now there, there is a bubble of me
And its floating in thee

Blue Sky in the shade of me
Things are now made of me
The weather vane will say
Oh, it smells like rain today

Ah 'cause God he took the stars and he tossed 'em
And I cannot tell the birds from the blossoms
Oh you shall never ever be free of me
'Cause he will make a tree outta me

Don't you say good bye to me
please describe the beautiful sky to me
And when the sky falls down
You mark my words, we will all catch mocking birds

Lay you head
Where my heart used to be
Hold the earth above me
Lay down on the green grass
And remember when you loved me
