lyrics

“Requiem”
Under a wide starry sky
Dig the grave and let me lie
Glad did I live
and glad did I die

And lay me down with a will
Lay me down
where I can be still
lay me down I will

This be the verse you grave for me
here where he lies where he longed to be
Glad did he live
and glad did he die

And lay me down with a will
Lay me down
where I can be still
lay me down I will

Home is the sailor home from the sea
Home where the woodsman roams free
Home is the sailor home from the sea
Home is the woodsman that now is free

Under a wide starry sky
Dig the grave and let me lie
Glad did I live
and glad did I die

And lay me down with a will
Lay me down
where I can be still
lay me down I will

Home is the sailor home from the sea
Home where the woodsman roams free
Home is the sailor home from the sea
Home is the woodsman that now is free
