graveyard stomp

A woman stood at the churchyard door
I'll tell you this tale then I'll tell no more

She saw a corpus carried in
The woman to the corpus said

What's it like when you are dead?
The corpus to the woman said

Worms crawl in and out my head
The worms crawl in and the worms crawl out
They crawl in thin and they crawl out stout

The woman to the corpus said
Shall I be like you when I'm dead

The corpus to the woman said


From  I don't know where it comes from.  I'm sure children of a certain age have always been fascinated by worms and corpses and graveyards.  I suppose there is a metaphysical message there somewhere too.

This is the only recording I have of all three brothers on one track.  Enjoy!

I don't know what the "real" title is; Graveyard Stomp - dancing in the graveyard - seemed to be if not entirely relevant, at least suitably irreverent.
