     D        G             D         G

D A D A2On a Saturday night all the girls run free
Bm F#m Bm F#mSinging "bury me not on the lone prairie"
D A D EsusBut where do you go when you finish broken-hearted?
A F# Bm--back to the dust where you started
[verse 1]
D G A F#Jenny cut her teeth in a mid-west shack
Bm G A F#As a shantytown girl on the wrong end of the tracks
Bm G A F#Her mama taught her everything she'd need to get along
Bm G F#sus F#And her Sunday School teacher taught her right and wrong
A GRaised to be respectable but born to be poor
Bm Bm/D Em F#It was all she'd ever known but she figured there was more
Bm G A F#When she came of age Jenny made herself a vow
Bm G F#sus F#"I'm gonna get out and I don't care how"
Bm G A2 F#7 Bm G A F#7 [verse 2]
D G A F#It appeared every Autumn on the courthouse lawn
Bm G A F#And the leaves never fell till the carnival was gone
Bm G A F#Michael was a barker for an arcade ride
Bm G F#sus F#With a smooth-talk tongue and a wandering eye
A G"Get your tickets here for the Halls O'Mirrors maze
Bm Bm/D Em F#If you can't get out I know a couple ways"
Bm G A F#He caught Jenny's eye but her thoughts looked down
Bm G F#susAll she wanted was a ticket going out of that town
[chorus]
F#She cried, she cried, oh
Bm GOh how I wanna bury you
Bm G AOh bury you and run away--done away
Bm G AOh how I wanna bury your memory
Bm Em F# Bm G A2 F#7 Bm G A Why don't you let me be?
[verse 3]
D G A F#Michael stole a kiss first then he whispered at last
Bm G A F#"you're a little old-fashioned so forget about your past
Bm G A F#These Bible belt folks think living is a sin
Bm G F#sus F#So they all start dying from the day they're born again"
A GAnd there atop the Ferris wheel the colours were a blur
Bm Bm/D Em F#The morning said he loved her but she wasn't really sure
Bm G A F#He made her promise not to leave until he came to get her
Bm G F#susShe promised him but she should have known better
[chorus]
F#She cried, she cried, oh
Bm GOh how I wanna bury you
Bm G AOh bury you and run away--done away
Bm G AOh how I wanna bury your memory
Bm Em F# Bm G A2 F#7 Bm G A Why don't you let me be?
[bridge]
Bm G A2 F# Oh, Jenny...
F#m A B G#
C#m A B C#m7 B/D# E Amaj7 On a train--stowaway
C#m BJesus loves you still and your mama wants you home
E Amaj7But oh bridges burn
C#m B2 G#When you carry your shame and you think you can't return
[chorus]
C#m AOh how I wanna bury you
C#m A BOh bury you and run away--done away
C#m A BOh how I wanna bury your memory
C#m F# G# [verse 4]
C#m A B G#mWhen they finally found her body on a cold dog day
C#m A B G#It was in a cattle car buried in the hay
C#m A B G#mA note in the pocket of her calico dress
C#m A G#mSaid "I'm guilty as sin but I can't confess"
B2 A2Once you know the truth you can hide it on a shelf
C#m C#m/E F# G#mBut unless you bring it down you can't live with yourself
C#m A B2 G#mIn her right hand Jenny held the Bible of her mother
C#m F#m G#Jenny had a pistol in the other
[outro] D G D G
D A D A2On a Saturday night all the girls run free
Bm F#m Bm F#mSinging "bury me not on the lone prairie"
D A D EsusBut where do you go when you finish broken-hearted?
A F# BmBack to the dust where you started
