Don’t cry on my grave cause I won’t be there
I’ll be in the breeze that ruffles your hair.
I’ll be in the sunshine and I’ll be in the snow
I’ll be in the places where we used to go.
I’ll be in your laughter and in the funny thing
I’ll be in your shadow and there in your dreams.
I’ll be in your greetings, but not your good-byes.
I’ll be in the reflection of your loving eyes.
I’ll always be with you and I’ll always care.
So don’t cry at my graveside cause I won’t be there.
