Bury Me With Sailors

I've played a lot of roles in life;
I've met a lot of men.
I've done some things I'd like to think
I would'nt do again.

And though I'm young,I'm old enough'
to know some day I'll die,
and to think about what lies beyond,
Besides whom I would lie.

Perhaps it does'nt matter much;
Still if I had my choice,
I want a grave,mongst Sailor when
At last death quells my voice.

I'm sick of the hypocrisy
Of lectures of the wise.
I'll take the man with all the flaws,
Who goes through scared, and dies.

The troops I knew were commonplace
they did'nt want the war;
They fought because their Fathers fought and
Their Fathers had before.

They cursed and killed and wept...
God knows they#re easy to deride..
But bury me with men like these;
They faced the guns and died.

It's funny when you think of it,
The way we got along.
We'd come from different worlds
To live in one were no one belongs.

I did'nt even like them all;
I'm sure they'd allagree.
Yet I would give my life for them, I know some did for me.

So bury me with Sailors, please,
Though much maligned they be.
Yes bury me with Sailors,
For I miss their company.

We'll not see their likes again;
We've had our fill of war.
So bury me with menlike them
'Til someone else does more.
