Bury Me

This song is by Dwight Yoakam, features Maria McKee and appears on the album Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc. (1986) and on the album Dwightyoakamacoustic.net (2000).

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

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

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

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
