The Last Old Shovel

This song is by Grandpa Jones and appears on the live album Live (1970).

Version 1
They buried her on the side of the mountain
There my darling sleeps in the ground
I stayed by her side 'til they covered her over
And the last old shovel was laid down

Till the last old shovel was laid down, laid down
Till the last old shovel was laid down
I stayed by her side and I cried and I cried
When the last old shovel was laid down

I think of her when it's stormy and raining
In that mountain far away
I long to be laid by her side on that mountain
There'll be rest for me on that day

There'll be rest for me on that day, that day
There'll be rest for me on that day
I long to be laid by her side on that mountain
On that mountain far away

Oh bury me where my true love is sleeping
Where she lies in that lonesome ground
I'll find sweet rest by the side of my darling
When the last old shovel is laid down

When the last old shovel is laid down, laid down
When the last old shovel is laid down
I'll find sweet rest by the side of my darling
When the last old shovel is laid down
