about

"New Orleans all the way. Another walking around song. Got it going pretty good, then took it over to [John] Hadley to put the icing on the cake. A rockin’ post funeral march.” — David Olney

lyrics

"Graveyard Stomp"
(Written by David Olney, John Hadley - Red Lilly Music, ASCAP; Hadley Six BMI)

Brother John's on his way to heaven
Meet his maker and shake his hand

C'mon baby, let's rattle them bones
Rattle them bones, rattle them bones
C'mon baby, let's rattle them bones
Till the bones won't rattle no more

Let's walk on down to New Orleans
New Orleans, New Orleans
Let's walk on down to New Orleans
And then we won't have to walk no more

Put that crown on your head
You must be livin' cuz you ain't dead
You know heaven is wait in' somewhere
When you get to the graveyard you almost there

Let the hangman dance at the end of his rope
The end of his rope, the end of his rope
Let the hangman dance at the end of his rope
Till he can't dance no more

Let them saints go marching in
Marching in, marching in
Let them saints go marching in
Till they can't March no more

It's a long, long way from where you're at
Snake eyes, black cats
Mister Bones wants his fair share
When you get to the graveyard you almost there

Let's walk on down to New Orleans
New Orleans, New Orleans
Let's walk on down to New Orleans
Then we won't have to walk no more

C'mon baby, let's rattle them bones
Rattle them bones, rattle them bones
C'mon baby, let's rattle them bones
Till the bones won't rattle no more
