Song Description

Cemeteries need songs too.

Story Behind the Song

Inspired by a walk in a small cemetery near my home.

Lyrics

Cemetery Song

I woke up this morning
And I was glad
What happens for the rest of the day
Won't be that bad.
Time to celebrate life and sing along.
Yes, it's time to write that cemetery song.

Chorus:
Sing along to the cemetery song.
Sing along to the cemetery song.
And be glad you are alive.
Be glad you are alive.

Rows of dead people
With slate marked graves
Next to rows of more dead people
Some with marble headstones.
Some simply say Father, Mother, Infant Son
Thinking of you fondly now that you are gone.
(chorus)

Usually lots of trees
And bumpy grounds
It can be very peaceful
No one makes a sound.
Well, except for that couple making out over there.
Sort of like in that movie with Rod Steiger.

Sing along to the cemetery song.
Sing along to the cemetery song.
And be glad you are alive.
Be glad you are alive.
