Dead Man’s Will

From the Calexico/Iron&Wine In the Reins EP. Cover here.

Give this stone to my brother
Cuz we found it playing in the barnyard
Many years ago

Give this bone to my father
He’ll remember hunting in the hills
When I was 10 years old

May my love reach you all
I lost it in myself and buried it too long
Now that I come to fall
Please say it’s not too late
Now that I’m dead and gone

Give this string to my mother
It pulled the baby teeth she keeps inside the drawer
Give this ring to my lover
I was scared and stupid not to ask
For her hand long before

May my love reach you all
I lost it in myself and buried it too long
Now that I come to fall
Please say it’s not too late
Now that I’m dead and gone
