Dwight Yoakam /

Bury Me (demo, 1981)

Dwight Yoakam & Maria McKee

Chorus:
Bury me along the Big Sandy
Down in the blue gray mountains
Rest my soul in those hills of coal
Until this old earth does tremble.

Now don't you mourn for me
When my soul is free
Woman don't you cry
Just bury me along the Big Sandy
Under a blue Kentucky sky.

This old town of sin, it's about to do me in
I don't know how much I can stand
With my knees on the street and my heart at their feet
I'm forced to beg from Satan's hand.

Chorus:
So bury me along the Big Sandy
Down in the blue gray mountains
Rest my soul in those hills of coal
Until this old earth does tremble.

Don't you mourn for me
When my soul is free
Woman don't you cry
Just bury me along the Big Sandy
Under a blue Kentucky sky.

--- Instrumental ---

When I came to this land I was strong and I could stand
But now I've somehow gone astray
Yet, I still see the truth in the teachings of my youth
And I know that the Lord ain't turned away.

Chorus:
So Bury me along the big sandy
Down in the blue gray mountains
Rest my soul in those hills of coal
Until this old earth does tremble.

Don't you mourn for me when my soul is free
Woman don't you cry
Just bury me along the Big Sandy
Under a blue Kentucky sky.
Under a blue Kentucky sky.
Under a blue Kentucky sky....
