The Decemberists – Burying Davy lyrics
Bring out your weepin' weeds
Put on your ten-pint bowlers
Bring out your weepin' weeds
We're buryin' Davy
We're buryin' Davy.

Gather the screws and spades
Oil up your mud-brown slicker
Gather the screws and spades
We're buryin' Davy
We're buryin' Davy.

Who'll plane the old pine boughs?
Who'll set his legs uncrooked?
Who'll plane the old pine boughs?
For buryin' Davy
For buryin' Davy.

Mother wept no tears
Brother grew unruly
Mother wept no tears
At buryin' Davy
At buryin' Davy.

Bring out your weepin' weeds
Put on your ten-pint bowlers
Bring out your weepin' weeds
We're buryin' Davy
We're buryin' Davy.
