Squirrel Nut Zippers — St. Louis Cemetery Blues lyrics

I was going downtown
Just the other day to meet my mates
They said I'll meet you down
Down in that mean old burying ground
I can shack my rattle
Rattle my bones
Just don't lay down before you're done
You can rag momma rag
You can't help it if it's not your bag
Down in the St. Louis cemetary
Got the St. Louis cemetary blues
We shall walk through the valley
Walk through the valley soon
We shall talk with the spirits
Talk with the spirits soon
Even Jesus himself shall be our leader
And you can rag momma rag
You can't help it if it's not your bag
Down at the St. Loius cemetary
Got the St. Louis cemetary blues
