Mason's Children

This song is by Grateful Dead and appears…

Mason died on Monday
We bricked him in the wall
All his children grew and grew
They never grew so tall before
They may never grow so tall again

We dug him up on Tuesday
He'd hardly aged a day
Taught them all he ever knew
They never knew so much before
They may never know so much again

Mason was a mighty man
A mighty man was he
All he said: "when I'm dead and gone
Don't you weep for me"

The wall collapsed on Wednesday
We chalked it up to fate
All his children ran and hid
They never hid so well before
Swore they'd never show their face again

Thursday came and Friday
With fires tall and bright
Mason's children cooked the stew
And cleaned up when the feast was through
Swore they'd never had such times before

Take me to the Reaper Man
To pay back what was loaned
If he's in some other land
Write it off as stoned
