BURY ME STANDING (Lyrics: Bob Weir, Gerrit Graham / Music: Bob Weir, RatDog) RatDog Once again the crossroads Ain't no moon shinin' through the trees Goddess lost my number, babe Left me begging, baby please Bury me standing I've been too long on my knees Angel and the devil, babe They be walking side by side Hammer on each other, babe Never one be satisfied Bury me standing Just the last place left to hide Nothing you can figure, babe Nothing you can fix Ain't much of nothing, babe (note 1) Just a couple tricks Ooh - now I know you know that song Bury me standing I've been crawling way too long Got a fist full of trouble, babe And one more will get you three Whole lot of shakin' peaches, babe Poison peaches, trouble tree If I change my way of living Well it would mean so much to me Blue smoke in the bar room Tattooed muscle, beer for beer Brown bottles and whiskey, babe Got a pay phone to my ear Woman made me love her Now some dude tells me she ain't here Give me whisky for whisky Give me blow for blow Give me whole lot of nothing baby But to go down slow Give me fire for fire Give me ice for ice Give me something to live for baby Now I'm asking nice (note 2) Ooh - Goddamn eternal tease Bury me standing I been too long on my knees Bury me at the crossroads Lay me down and let me be Once again the crossroads And there ain't no moon shinin' through the trees Goddess tossed my number, babe Left me begging, baby please Bury me standing I been a lifetime on my knees Bury me at the crossroads Lay me down and let me be Let me be Lay me down and let me be Let me be Let me be Lay me down and let me be Let me be Lay me down and let me be Notes (1) this is what Weir sings, but the lyrics with the CD have "Nothing much to it, babe" (2) in early versions of this song, Weir sang "I ain't asking twice"
