Del Reeves – Indian Burial Ground lyrics

Indian burial ground
(Hank Mills)
" © '65 Johnny Bienstock Music, bmi "

I've been so mean and hateful to my baby
That's why the boogie man is after me
If I should die before I get forgiveness
Would someone do me one last favo please
Oh bury me in an Indian burial ground
It shouldn't be too hard for you to see
Yes bury me in an Indian burial ground
There's a good chance the devil might overlook me
The sidewalks of the town are filled with women
They lure me like the ointment did the fly
So if some night my jealous baby shoots me
Here's what I think of you if I should die
Oh bury me in an Indian burial ground
It shouldn't be too hard for you to see
Oh bury me in an Indian burial ground
Cause there's a good chance the devil might overlook me
I knew I should of hopped that freight to Frisco
By now I'd be a thousand miles from town
I heard the shot but I couldn't dodge a bullet
That's why I laying this close to the ground
Oh bury me in an Indian burial ground...
Oh bury me in an Indian burial ground...
