The Districts – Funeral Beds lyrics

These great fields are stretching,
Taking me oh so far
Great fields are stretching,
Savannah stretching oh so far

And this dry air is taking
My girl and it's oh so hard
And I wish I had a melody for a songbird to sing back my love

Oh my savannah,
Did it have to be so hard?
Oh my savannah,
Taking all my love and all my heart

Tailor won't you make me
The finest suit so dark and black and grey
And old john won't you lend me
The finest gun your eyes have ever laid

The fastest bullet flying,
So quick nobody ever feel no pain
'Cause the plains they took my baby
And I'm gonna take her to the funeral beds to lay

And oh my savannah,
Did it have to be so hard?
Oh my savannah,
Taking all my love and all my heart

Oh no no... X6

And I'm struggling, and I'm stumbling,
And I need to start
And I'm struggling, and I'm stumbling
I need a friend
I'm struggling, and I'm stumbling
I need you in my heart

Oh no no... X3

Tailor won't you make me
The finest suit so dark and black and grey
And old john won't you lend me
The finest gun your eyes have ever laid

The fastest bullet flying,
So quick nobody ever feel no pain
'Cause the plains they took my baby
And I'm gonna take her to the funeral beds to lay

I hate to say I love you,
But oh goddamn I love you,
You know I do
But you're gone away, gone away, gone away

These great fields are stretching,
Taking me oh so far

    I think that the story about the song is about a man who is crazily in love with a women but she is dead. He can't come to terms with the fact that she's dead and it drives him to insanity. He starts thinking that he should just kill himself to join the lady he is obsessed about. You learn that the woman isn't just any woman, she's his finance, when he is asking for a tailor to make him the finest suit. You can also see that he is on the verge of killing himself when he asks for the "finest gun." The man is depressed because the last lines, "These great fields are stretching, taking me oh so far." The great fields are stretching is another way of showing how far away he is from sanity.
