Lyrics to song Pallbearer by Josh Turner, Iris DeMent, Marty Stuart

Verse 1
She left me in the darkness all alone
She abandoned all the good times and the love I thought we had

Chorus:
I'm like a lonesome pallbearer walking down the aisle
Travelling to the graveyard, counting down the miles
With every earth-filled shovel, they dig that eternal bed
I'm like a lonesome pallbearer, carrying the dead
Carrying the dead

Verse 2
She don't call me and she don't try to
And my praying can't bring her back
My eyes are wide open, watching my future fade to black

Chorus:
I'm like a lonesome pallbearer walking down the aisle
Travelling to the graveyard, counting down the miles
With every earth-filled shovel, they dig that eternal bed
I'm like a lonesome pallbearer, carrying the dead
Carrying the dead

Verse 3
I've pondered trading places with the man laying in that hearse
I've tried to hold my head up but her leaving is like a curse

Chorus:
I'm like a lonesome pallbearer walking down the aisle
Travelling to the graveyard, counting down the miles
With every earth-filled shovel, they dig that eternal bed
I'm like a lonesome pallbearer, carrying the dead
Carrying the dead
Carrying the dead
