Well I hope the years that wrinkled up our faces
Have enjoyed us half as much as we did then
And if I should die before you jump your traces
Would you do one more favor for a friend
Remember all my songs and all their meanings
And remember how they helped you to believe
Then turn my body into ashes and take me with you when you leave
Then take my ashes to St Louie
Drop ’em in the Mississippi
Where the current’s strong
I wanna flow back through the south land
I want to know I’m going home

Well I ain’t planning on it happening
No time soon now
And it ain’t something that I sit around
And think about all the time
But me and you we’ve howled at
A lot of full moons now
And I’ll admit that every now and then
The thought does cross my mind
So take my ashes to St Louie
Drop ’em in the Mississippi
Where the current’s strong
I wanna flow back through the south land
I want to know I’m going home
So take my ashes to St Louie
Drop ’em in the Mississippi
Where the current’s strong
I wanna flow back through the south land
I want to know I’m going home
