Graveyard

This song is by Loudon Wainwright III and appears on the album Last Man On Earth (2001).

I go to the graveyard where we all must go
Among the dead and the buried there just so I will know
What it's like beneath those trees listening to that wind
I go to the graveyard and I'll be back again

I played in the graveyard when I was just a boy
I'd run among the headstones myself I would enjoy
But I was young and hardly knew what would happen then
I played in the graveyard and I'll be back again

I walk through the graveyard I read the headstones
So many dead and buried there, each one all alone
An old man and an infant and a little child of ten
I walk through the graveyard and I'll be back again

My father's in the graveyard, my dear mother too
I visit them with flowers what else can I do
I go to the graveyard to remember them
I'm an orphan in the graveyard & I'll be back again
