Bury Me Not (traditional)

"O bury me not on the lone prairie
Where coyotes wail and the wind blows free
When I die, don't bury me
'Neath the western skies, on the lone prairie.

"O bury me not on the lone prairie."
These words came low and mournfully
From the pallid lips of the boy who lay
On his dying bed at the break of day.

"O bury me not..." And his voice failed there.
But they took no heed to his dying prayer.
In a narrow grave, just six by three
They buried him there on the lone prairie.

There was never any more inception than there is now,

Nor any more youth or age than there is now,

And will never be any more perfection than there is now,

Nor any more heaven or hell than there is now.
