lyrics

Under an oak tree, under an oak tree in Nevada
I buried my father, and my father's horses
And I wept

'Cause I had a daughter, I had a daughter in November
I wish she was older, so she could remember
My old man

Brother to hold her little hand
Now lay the casket deep down in the sand

I had a mother, I had a mother in Montana
She had a bottle, she had a bottle full of rye
She never cried

Told her my father had died
She laughed and said, "Don't kid me boy, you lie!"
You lie
You lie
You lie
You lie
