Dead Man's Song

11/11/2008


Sing my song from beyond the grave There's no one left here to save The shots rang loud then disappeared Turned stone white like an old man's beard Oh, I've got to say what must be said But, things went wrong and I am dead [Play single chorus w/o lyrics] So, I sing my song it's been so long I've had some sense of right and wrong I can't say why they fell that way Those cards face down, down there to stay Now, I know what's right. I know what's wrong I know which do, and don't belong But I Ride on till my mind is long gone It's the lie of a dead man's song [Solo] So I sing to you my sullen dirge Red, warm, life my veins are purged My limbs can't move I'm buried deep They've covered me with dirt to sleep Oh, I've got to say what must be said But, things went wrong and I am dead But I Ride on till my mind is long gone It's the lie of a dead man's song But I Ride on till my mind is long gone It's the lie of a dead man's song

				Sing my song from beyond the grave
				There's no one left here to save 
				The shots rang loud then disappeared
				Turned stone white like an old man's beard
					Bright moonlit sky, the bluest night
					That muzzle flash burned red and bright
					Oh, I've got to say what must be said
					But, things went wrong and I am dead 
					
				So, I sing my song it's been so long
				I've had some sense of right and wrong 
				I don't want to criticize
				I don't feel that I am wise
					But, I know what's right. I know what's wrong
					I know which do, and don't belong 
					I've got to say what must be said
					But, things went wrong and I am dead 
				
				But I Ride on till my mind is long gone
				It's the lie of a dead man's song
				
				So I sing to you my sullen dirge 
				Red, warm, life my veins are purged 
				My limbs can't move I'm buried deep 
				They've covered me with dirt to sleep
					I can't say why they fell that way
					Those cards face down, down there to stay
					Oh, I've got to say what must be said
					But, things went wrong and I am dead
				
				But I Ride on till my mind is long gone
				It's the lie of a dead man's song
				But I Ride on till my mind is long gone
				It's the lie of a dead man's song
