take this cold body
anoint his heirs
take a dollar for the crossing
from coins in his name

souls slight of coin, slight of name?
then i'll meet you at the back gate
and greet you just the same

tarry to my side
and we'll walk on
to where the frost of the dead king
weigh heavy on the vine

long it's been said
that the worth of a man be his woman
and his lands how he tends
