Lyrics

Here lies love
In a grave caused by jealousy
Here lies love
In a grave caused by jealousy
Hate was a pall bearer
And on the tombstone was written misery

It was a bad situation
From the beginning to the end
It was a bad situation
From the beginning to the end
I say, baby you killed my love
Now the undertaker is your friend

Now I'm sad and I'm blue
There's not much I can do
If these blues don't leave me
The undertaker will get me too

Ooh-hoo here lies love
In a grave caused by jealousy
You know that hate was the pall bearer
And on the tombstone was written misery

Notes About This Song

Recording location: Columbia University, New York City - 1969

"HERE LIES LOVE" was an old R&B tune (the flip side of "WPLJ") I used to like. When Lowell joined the band, it became a frequent item on the concert song list.
FZ - YCDTOSA 5 notes

The B side of W-P-L-J by The 4 Deuces (Music City 790, 1955) was Here Lies My Love (Martin/Dobard) By Mr. Undertaker - who was blues vocalist Ray Agee.
