Bury Me (with my feet up in the air)

You can listen to an mp3 of Bury Me on my Songs page. There's also a link to a delightful graphic by my friend Suzi Landoni Suzanne Landon.

Songwriting. Words and music: Dale Emery.

Performance. All vocals, all guitars, bass, drum programming: Dale Emery.

The Story. I wrote Bury Me around 1976, when I was 17. My friend Ttimm Roy recorded a Ttimm-o-phonic version in 1979 on his sophomore album Taxi to Portland (now out of print, I'm sad to say). I recorded Bury Me in November 2001, then re-recorded lots of the parts in June 2002, after I'd bought a better microphone and written a better bass line.
