"And No One Knows I'm Gone" as written by and Tom Waits Kathleen Brennan....
hell above and heaven below
all the trees are gone
the rain has a such a lovely sound
to those who're six feet underground
the leaves will bury every year
and no one knows I'm gone

leave me golden tell me dark
hide from Graveyard John
the moon is full here every night
and I can bathe here in his light
the leaves will bury every year
and no one knows I'm gone

    General CommentSounds ,kinda morbid but I think the song is about a dead homeless person rotting away out in a field or along a rail road line and no one has discovered his body and no one misses him so no one even knows he's gone and left unburied.
