lyrics

When I die, will you bury me?
So I can keep good company.
It’s not as lonely as it seems.
My dear, I’ll see you in your dreams.
When I die, will you bury me?

You can only go so far 'till you start coming back.
You’re only welcoming a burnout.
The booze and the pills are just artificial will.
The white flags had quite the turn out.

When I die, will you build a fire?
Use the whole damn barn as the funeral pyre.
With the smoke I’ll rise to the ashen skies,
And wait for you to join me there.
When I die will you build a fire?

It can take you right down to the touch of the skin.
How the whiskey works like medicine.
We watch it wash away what the doctors couldn’t quell.
There ain’t no prayer in the world that seems to work that well.

Here we are, don't try to change the DNR
Though my heart keeps on beating.
Our love can never die,
I’ll always keep a watchful eye.
It’s only death that we’re cheating.

So when I die, will you follow me?
This life is a simple boundary.
Two in the world that cannot part,
I love you dear with all my heart.
When I die, will you follow me?

about

Putnam Murdock Massachusetts

Every Thursday night the Centre Streeters would gather in circle in a living room and evoke every damn lost, drunk, and brokenhearted song known to man... in four part harmony of course. Each time brought me closer and closer to the point of knowing no other way of life. My bio is isn't finished, but I've been gifted with humility. Sitting in a circle, playing songs is where the real music exists. ... more
