RED WHITE AND BLUE

Saw a flag-draped coffin in a white hearse today
    Oh Man
    Oh Lord 
Somebody's paid up
Red White and Blue flag 
Wrapped tight around the box
Add the hearse
Stopped still
Against a pink sky
    Oh Lord
    Oh My
Smoke
Sage
Dancers spinning
I moved
Two steps forward
Two steps back
Rocking like ocean waves
    Oh Man
    Oh Lord
A hearse pulled up and I was right behind it

Looking at the morning sky
Flag draped coffin
Getting ready to lie
    Oh Lord
    Oh My
