On New Year's Day

This song is by Greg Brown and Dick Pinney and appears on the Live album Hacklebarney (1974).

Met a coffin
In the night
On New Year's day
Hum a jazz song
And turn away

They said it was a young man
On his way
To the grave
Hum a jazz song
And turn away

There was no lover
In his wake
On New Year's day
To hum a jazz song, hum a glad song, a love song
And turn away

So spread out woman
Wide as the fields
On New Year's day
Hum a jazz song, a love song, a glad song
We'll roll away
