Oh, Bury Me Not lyrics
Artist: Johnny Cash
[Recitation:] lord, I've never lived where churches grow I loved creation better as it stood that day you finished it so long ago and looked upon your work and called it good I know that others find you in the light that sifted down through tinted window panes and yet I seem to feel you near tonight in this dim, quiet starlight on the plains I thank you, lord, that I'm placed so well that you've made my freedom so complete that I'm no slave to whistle, clock or bell nor weak eyed prisoner of waller street just let me live my life as I've begun and give me work that's open to the sky make me a partner of the wind and sun and I won't ask a life that's soft or high let me be easy on the man that's down let me be square and generous with all I'm careless sometimes, lord, when I'm in town but never let them say I'm mean or small make me as big and open as the plains and honest as the horse between my knees clean as a wind that blows behind the rains free as the hawk that circles down the breeze forgive me, lord, if sometimes I forget you know about the reasons that are hid you understand the things that gall or fret well, you knew me better than my mother did just keep an eye on all that's done or said and right me
