Key: D
Intro: D   G  Em  (4x) 

D 
A lifetime of accomplishments of which the dirt knows none 
G                     Em 
Only in death can one truly return 
D 
Return the carrots, the apples and potatoes 
    G                       Em 
The chickens, the cows, the fish and tomatoes 
D 
In one glorious swoop, let the deed be done 
    G                    Em       D 
And bury me deep so that I can be one... 

       G  Em 

D      G  Em (3x) 

D 
And all around my muscle and all around my bone 
G                      Em 
Don't incinerate me or seal me from 
    D 
The dirt that borne me, the bed that which from 
    G                       Em 
The rain falls upon and the fruit comes from 
        D 
For the dirt is a blanket, no fiery tomb 
   G                      Em 
No punishment, reward, or pearly white room 
    D                                        
And you who say that in death we will pay 
    G                      Em 
The dead they can't hear a word that you say 
     D   
Your words are not kind, sober, or giving 
     G                    Em 
They only put fear in the hearts of the living 
   D  
So put away your tongues and roll up your sleeves 
G                       Em      D 
Pick up that shovel and bury me deep 
        G     Em 
Bury me deep
