Story Behind the Song

First person account of the Trail of Tears.

Lyrics

Shallow Grave
Words and music by: Daryl J. Yearwood

A shallow grave is all that's left
to mark the way we came.
Hard-packed earth and mounds of stone,
they all appear the same.

A once proud people laid to waste
by fears and hate and shame.
A shallow grave is all that's left
and mine will be the same.

A stand of pines and running deer;
fog upon the glade.
Nevermore will I see these sites,
but my memory will never fade.

Now disease has come to take
the old ones and the lame.
A shallow grave is all that's left
and mine will be the same.

A shallow grave is all that's left
and mine should be the same.
