Don’t Bury Me in Seattle
c. 2013 David Damroze

He was a hard working cowboy from Kansas City way
Who decided to ride out to Puget sound to get some lumberjack pay
But as he was chopping down a spruce , a branch hit him in the head
when we gathered around him , these were the words he said,

Don’t Bury Me in Seattle
I can’t stand all the rain.
Just put me back in the Saddle
and point my horse towards the Paris of the Plains.

So we glued him up in the saddle, we tied the reins around his cold dead hands
pointed his old sorrel mare towards their homeland.
we watched him ride off through the Cascades with the buzzards flying around his head
wondering if we’d done right by the last words he had said ,

Don’t bury me etc..

No one knows if he made it back to his home in Kansas City
where the changing seasons kiss the rolling hills and the women are so pretty
but some say when the moon is full at the fountains around the town
they’ve seen the ghost of a cowboy watering his horse
and heard him singing this song

Don’t bury me etc. x 2

Actually wrote this about 4 years ago.
And just recorded it. I seem to have a cycle of stuff piling up over 3-4 years and then recording it.
Check out my latest song called Philosophy
