Away Out On The Saint Sabbath

print

Away out on the old saint Sabbath
Lay down to take my rest
My knapsack for my pillow
And my gun upon my chest

   Please don’t bury me on the lonesome prairie
   Please don’t bury me on the lone prairie
   You can bury me in the east
   You can bury me in the west
   Please don’t bury me on the lone prairie

My father he lies sleeping
Beneath the deep blue sea
I have no father no mother
There’s none but hell and me

My mother she lies sleeping
Beneath the church yard rocks
Her body lies there moldering
And her spirit has gone to God
