When You Go

Who’s gonna carry you when you go
Family and friends you used to know
They’ll all be standing round saying things profound like
“I used to be his friend”

Who’s gonna carry you when you go?
Family and friends you used to know
They’ll be on bended knee drinking to your memory
Who’s gona carry you when you go, away, away, away

I suppose when all’s said and done
At least you’ve come, at least you’ve come
If nothing else but to show a face, a face, some grace, some grace
Who’s gonna carry you when you go?
They be on bended knee drinking to your memory
Who’s gonna carry you when you
I used to be his friend
I knew him better than you did
He liked me more than he did, you
But now he’s gone, gone, gone, gone beneath us here
and what are we, what are we to do

Who’s gonna carry you when you go?
Who’s gonna carry you when you go?
Who’s gonna carry you when you go?
Away, today

We all will go you know
We all will go beneath the snow
We all will go away, away, away, maybe not today, today, today
Who’s gonna carry you when you go away, away, away
I can still see his face
slipped away in sleep
but now he’s in a better
place six feet deep
what a way to go, so slow
you never know
you never know
you never know

I suppose when all’s said and done
At least you’ve come, at least you’ve come
If nothing else but to respect, genuflect and leave
what a way to go, so slow
you never know
you never know
you never know
