lyrics

Now my time is over
Now my time has come
I’m off to meet the maker
I will miss you very much

So come gather ‘round your withered bows
And gather ‘round your drums
Sing a song for an unwilling ghost
To leave your pretty arms

When I’m long gone don’t cry for me
Long gone don’t cry for me
Long gone don’t cry for me
Sing a little song for me

Raise your sorrows from this sullen wake
And bury all the gloom
Let’s be dogs against the borrowed sky
Howling at the moon

When I’m long gone don’t cry for me
Long gone don’t cry for me
Long gone don’t cry for me
Sing a little song for me

And then stumble on home
Through the barrio tonight
Sweet verses from your liquored lips
Float on up to the sky

Then I in my tuxedo
And in my homburg hat and in my bliss
Peacefully drifting by
I go nowhere without a gift
