Oh, Bury Me Not


Traditional cowboy song

"Oh, bury me not on the lone prairie,
Where the coyote howls and the wind blows free,
In a narrow grave just six by three--
Oh, bury me not on the lone prairie.

"Oh, bury me not on the lone prairie."
These words came low and mournfully
From the pallid lips of a man who lay
On his dying bed at the end of day.

"Oh, bury me not--" but he ended there.
And we gave no heed to his dying prayer;
In a narrow grave just six by three,
We buried him there on the lone prairie.

"Ne in-tera mi infra alti gra
Ko plu agrio zoa e venti fla
In u simpli, steno tafo-lo.
Ne in-tera mi topo solo-lo.

"Ne in-tera mi topo u-ci land."
Ko silent, an dice u-la demand
Ex palidi labia de andro; qi
Kumbe epi kli kron an morta di.

"Ne in-tera mi--" sed an sto la.
Anti-co an dice sti zer a na:
In u simpli, steno tafo-lo,
Na in-tera an topo solo-lo.
