Words and music by Jessica Tardy

lyrics

But some return
I struck the match I watched you burn
Ashes to ashes, dust to dirt
Oh I won't put the shovel down

Some love cures you
Some love's cursed
I tried to tell you
You never learned
Every bad man gets his turn
Oh won't put the shovel down

I only wanna hear the wind
Whipping through the trees
I only wanna see nothing
Where you used to be
I wanna dance under dark skies
Set my spirit free

Chorus:
So I won't put the shovel down
Till you're six feet under
the cold hard ground
No I won't put the shovel down
Some love blazes
Some love bleeds
Some love wrap around
So you can't breathe
Oh Won't Put the Shovel down

Some ghosts rattle
Some ghosts scream
you sound just like a human being
The closer I get, the less I see
Oh I won't put the shovel down

I only want to hear the wind
Whippin' through the trees
I only wanna see nothing
Where you used to be
I wanna dance under dark skies
Set my spirit free

So I won't put the shovel down
Till you're six feet under
the cold hard ground
No I won't put the shovel down
Till you're six feet under
the cold hard ground

Some dead lay down

Till you're six feet under
the cold hard ground

about

Jenee Halstead Somerville, Massachusetts

"She, like Neko Case before her, mines allegories and fables for her songs, but Halstead isn't a cyclone. She floats and observes, almost achieving a spectral presence on her own songs." Stephen Thomas Erlewine - All Music Guide
