Forest Lawn - John Denver (約翰·丹佛)

Written by:Tom Paxton

Oh lay me down in forest lawn

In a silver casket

 

With golden flowers over my head

In a silver basket

 

Let the drum and bugle corp play taps

While cannons roar

 

Sixteen liveried employees sell souvenirs

They'll give me a simple funeral there I know

 

With a hundred strolling strings

And topless dancers with golden wings

Oh take me when I'm gone to forest lawn

 

Oh come come come come

Kindly leave a contribution in the pail

 

Be as simple and as trusting as a child would

And we'll sell you the church in the dale

 

To find a simple resting place

Is my desire

 

To lay me down with a smiling face

Comes a little bit higher

 

My likeness cast in brass

Will stand in plastic grass

While hidden weights and springs

Tip it's hat to the mourners filing past

I want to go simply when I go

 

They'll give me a simple funeral there I know

 

I'll lie beneath the sand

With piped in tapes of billy graham

Oh take me when I'm gone to forest lawn

 

Rock of ages cleft for me

 

For a slightly higher fee

Oh take me when I'm gone to forest lawn

 

I'm a
