Bury Me Not On The Lone Prairie (Cash Johnny)

'Oh, bury me not on the lone prairie These words came low and mournfully From the pallid lips of a youth who lay On the bloody ground at the close of day Oh, bury me not and his voice failed there But we took no heed to his dying prayer In a narrow grave just six by three We buried him there on the lone prairie Oh, bury me not on the lone prairie Where the coyotes howl and the wind blows free Where there's not a soul that will care for me Oh, bury me not on the lone prairie
