about

Emily Dickinson's last wishes before her death.

lyrics

Well the sun is goin down and I've taken my last breath
please don't cry for me and leave me in my white dress
Go tell the preacher and everyone in town
I am flying up in heaven with the birds all around

Take me out the back door walk me through the barn
carry my body up the hill and lay my burden down

Well I once loved me a preacher he loved me too
but he wouldn't leave her and there was nothing I could do
so I took to my room and all I did was write
words and words how they burned deep into the night

Take me out the back door walk me through the barn
carry my body up the hill and lay my burden down

Come Jezebels and sinners outlaws and harlots too
were all goin out the back door and I'm goin out there too
go tell my brother and everyone in town
We're all flying up in heaven with the birds all around

Take me out the back door walk me through the barn
carry my body up the hill and lay my burden down

Well the sun is goin down and I've taken my last breath
please don't cry for me and leave me in my white dress
