Will I see you there when that final trumpet blows?
Will I see you there when that final trumpet blows?
If I don't see you there, I will run a comb through my hair
And I will wait, I will wait, I will wait

Will you walk on in when the angel summons you?
Will you walk on in when the angel summons you?
If I don't see you go, I will let the minions flow
And I will wait, I will wait, I will wait

Down in Dealey Plaza, the tourists mill about
Down in Dealey Plaza, the tourists mill about
And I am far from where we live, and I have not learned how to forgive
But I will wait, I will wait, I will wait

    General CommentThis is the very best Mountain Goats song of all time.

    The interesting thing is that it's a ballad on a Casiotone and it just completely stands outside of anything on All Hail West Texas. It's a kind of Greek chorus song, or a giant apostrophe or footnote for the album.

    Listen to this song, read Libra by DeLillo, and try to keep yourself together.

    Peace.
