Lyrics

Graveyard Song

Back to all the words

We go dancing in the light, light of the new moon
It’s the night the ghouls come out, they’ll be walking soon


This graveyard is full of stones
Chipped and covered with moss
Every stone tells it’s tale
Each a tale of loss

I’ve been dead now 40 years
Killed by my true lover
Took a bullet in the chest
Because she loved another

I am sure you have never seen
A stupider man than me
I stuck my head in a crocodiles mouth
Just to see what I could see

I bought myself a tombstone
I want nothing but the best
Chisel in my expiration date
I’ll give it my best guess

This graveyard is getting crowded
Dying it ain’t no sin
Saint and Sinner they are all
Dying just to get in
