BURY ME NOT ON THE LONE PRAIRIE


    BURY ME NOT ON THE LONE PRAIRIE

    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.
