Lyrics
Well, I think I finally found me a sure-fire way to forget
It's so simple, I'm surprised I hadn't done thought of it before yet
It's foolproof, well, it's foolhardy, maybe, but who knows?
Anyway, here I am, walkin' down toward where the cold dark water flows
All it takes is

One dyin' and a buryin', one dyin' and a buryin'
Some cryin', six carryin' me
I wanna be free
Oh-ho, I want to be free

Free from all this heartache and regret
And free from pinin' for the love I can't forget
The love that once was warm and then just somehow turned to hate
Made my life a prison from which there's only one escape
That's

One dyin' and a buryin', one dyin' and a buryin'
Some cryin', six carryin' me, I wanna be free
One dyin' and a buryin', one dyin' and a buryin'
Some cryin', six carryin' me, I wanna be free
