When I die and lay me down
Cast my body to the sea
But bury my heart on the Jersey Shore
And every time you think of me
Know my mother was a beauty queen
My father tended bar
And they made me beneath Leo's rising star
With Elvis on the radio singing love me tender, love me true

[Chorus]
Bury my heart on the Jersey Shore
Bury my heart yeah
Bury my heart no matter where I run
Bury my heart yeah

As soon as I could walk I ran
Stayed about as still as sand
And when I stopped and turned around
Said man oh man how far I've come
Look at all these things I've done
Now you know I just want to go home

[Chorus]

Sha la la la la la
I never have stood still in the sun or the rain
Like that old littering pine tree
When time moves on

I move along but the images will always be
With each passing year the lines will grow deeper
My memories will grow sweeter
The laughter will grow fainter
And I'll remain the painter of a love song from 1973

[Chorus]
