Where the Dead go when they Die by Paddy Garrigan and The Stroller Priests

Some people move away without due notice
They don't give you a forwarding address
They may give you a fright in the middle of the night
But they can't say where they got to when they left
I try hard not to think about dying
At least, not the parts of who or how or why
But there's one thing I'd like to know
And if you know, let me know,
Tell me: where do the dead go when they die?

When they die, when they die, tell me
where do the dead go when they die?

I am thinking today of that sorrowful day
When no more here on earth shall I be found
When my friends say goodbye with a tear and a sigh
And they put me down underneath the ground
When they lay me down that fatal, fateful morning
There won't be no time to stop and say goodbye
I'll say “that's all from me” and my new home will be
In a box where the dead go when they die.

When they die, when they die,
In a box where the dead go when they die.

Is there much entertainment up in heaven?
Do you have to come up with your own?
If you gave me all eternity and gave me a harp
I could still fail to get the thing in tune
Are there any bartenders up in heaven?
If there are, then I know where I'll abide
I'll say “thanks and goodnight”, then I'll go for a pint
In the bar where the dead go when they die

When they die, when they die,
In the bar where the dead go when they die

Is there some way you should be remembered?
Is it something you did or you said?
Is there one simple fact upon which we can act
and cling onto, now that you're dead?
I don't want to make you a picture
Or a statue twenty-seven feet high
Let me get some words down and I'll carry you around
In the song where the dead go when they die

When they die, when they die,
In the song where the dead go when they die

When they die, when they die, tell me
where do the dead go when they die?
