about

"In My Dying Place" written by Nicholas Horner (ASCAP).

lyrics

No shadows on my face; the whispering sun's so high
no sun could never rest my weary eyes
'cause in my dying place that tore the green earth dry
the buzzard bells are ringing in my skies.

I heard December's song and sang with every breath;
I stoked my fiery lungs 'til none was left
but now my hearth is gone with ash in long supply
just empty out my embers as I die

but when i'm gone, don't you miss me when I reach that pearly gate
just lay me down in my burying ground before I reach my fate

Cause I'm my dying place, 'tis better in July then all the days of winter passed me by

Now, if I were a farmer I'd bid my cattle roam
and graze the ivory fields my winter'd sewn
And if I were an oil man i'd let my tankers cry
until the smokestacks warm my innards dry
