Bury me beneath the prairie sod
Under the wide and rolling sky
Lay me down in the arms of the earth
Below where the meadowlarks flit and fly
Send me to rest in the cradle of the plains
By the meadow where the sunflower grows.
Where the wheat field whispers in the muted dusk
In the land where the south wind blows.
