Epitaph (Black and Blue)

This song is by Kris Kristofferson and appears on the album The Silver Tongued Devil And I (1971).

This song has been covered by Graham Bell under the title "So Black And So Blue".
Her close friends have gathered
Lord, ain't it a shame
Grievin' together
Sharin' the blame

But when she was dyin'
Lord, we let her down
There's no use cryin'
It can't help her now

The party's all over
Drink up and go home
It's too late to love her
And leave her alone

Just say she was someone
Lord, so far from home
Whose life was so lonesome
She died all alone

Who dreamed pretty dreams
That never came true
Lord, why was she born
So black and blue

Oh, why was she born
So black and blue
