lyrics

I was killed by a woman
She put a bullet right through my heart
As she fired a second round, saw my blood on the ground
With the third shot my world it fell apart

I know I wasn’t a good man
But I done the best that I knew how
I lived a life of shame ‘cause the drink was my game
Now I’m living six feet underground

Please bring flowers to my gravestone
Please come visit my new home
I lived out my days, but my spirit won’t raise
Please bring flowers to my grave, my gravestone

That waitress she didn't mean nothing
She was just an old drunk that I knew
I tried to tell her no when she took me to her home
But I cannot say what she made me do

My old lady she didn't wanna hear it
Just stood before me and laughed
I guess she'd had enough of all my low-down stuff
Her eyes glowed red behind that muzzle flash

Please bring flowers to my gravestone
Please come visit my new home
I lived out my days, but my spirit won’t raise
Please bring flowers to my grave, my gravestone

Can’t get no peace in this graveyard
The dead make a helluva squall
Their carrying on keeps me up all night long
If I had me a gun I’d kill ‘em all

Please bring flowers to my gravestone
Please come visit my new home
I lived out my days, but my spirit won’t raise
Please bring flowers to my grave, my gravestone

Stewart Eastham Nashville, Tennessee

Stewart Eastham takes his music in bold new directions with his third full length solo album "The Great Silence". This release takes on the metaphysical realm exploring grand themes of life, death, and rebirth. While not technically a “concept” album, it feels like one with its repeating themes and motifs.

Eastham is based in Nashville, TN and was born and raised in rural Northern California.
