Well i wonder which song
they're gonna play you when we go
i hope its something quiet and minor and
peaceful and slow

and as we float out into the ether
into the everlasting arms
i hope we don't hear Marley's chains
we forged in life

cause the chains I've been hearing now
for most of my life
and these chains I've been hearing now
for most of my life
to hear the 59' sound, coming through on
grandmama's radio
can you hear the rattling chains in the hospital walls
did you hear the old gospel choir
when they came to carry you over
and did you hear you favorite song
that one last time

and i wonder, were you scared
when the metal hit the glass
well i was playing a show down the road,
when your spirit left your body

and they told me when i was on the front lawn
and i'm sorry that i couldn't go
but i still know the song and the words
and her name and every reason

and i know, cause we were kids and
we used to hang
and i know cause we were kids and
we used to hang, to hear the
59' sound coming through on grandmama's radio
did you hear the rattling chains in the hospital walls
did you hear the old gospel choir
when they came to carry you over
did you hear you favourite song
one last time

young boys, young girls
young boys, young girls
well you ain't supposed to die
on a Saturday night
you ain't supposed to die on a Saturday night
ain't supposed to die on a Saturday night
you ain't supposed to leave my life

to hear the 59 sound coming through
grandmama's radio
did you hear those ratteling chains in the hospital walls
did you hear the old gospel choir
when they came to carry your body over
did you hear you favourite song
one last time

did you hear the old gospel choir?
when they came to carry you over
did you hear you favourite song
one last time

young boys, young girls
young boys, young girls
