      Johnny Cash - Bury Me Not on the Lone Prairie Música y Letra

      Lord, I've never lived where churches grow I loved creation better
      As it stood That day you finished it so long ago And looked upon your work and
      Called it good I know that others find you in the light That sifted down through
      Tinted window panes And yet I seem to feel you near tonight In this dim, quiet
      Starlight on the plains I thank you, Lord, that I'm placed so well That you've
      Made my freedom so complete That I'm no slave to whistle, clock or bell Nor weak
      Eyed prisoner of Waller Street Just let me live my life as I've begun And give
      Me work that's open to the sky Make me a partner of the wind and sun And I won't
      Ask a life that's soft or high Let me be easy on the man that's down Let me be
      Square and generous with all I'm careless sometimes, Lord, when I'm in town But
      Never let them say I'm mean or small Make me as big and open as the plains And
      Honest as the horse between my knees Clean as a wind that blows behind the rains
      Free as the hawk that circles down the breeze Forgive me, Lord, if sometimes I
      Forget You know about the reasons that are hid You understand the things that
      Gall or fret Well, you knew me better than my mother did Just keep an eye on all
      That's done or said And right me
      Sometimes when I turn aside
      And guide me on that long, dim trail ahead
      That stretched upward toward the great divide
      Oh, bury me not on the lone prairie
      These words came low and mournfully
      From the pallid lips of a youth who lay
      On his dying bed 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 shallow grave just six by three
      We buried him there on the lone Prairie.
