DT Lyrics:

Subject: Marble Orchard
Date: 23 Jun 97 - 07:40 PM

Does anyone know a song:

Take me to the marble orchard Carve my name upon a stone

That's all I know of it, and I couldn't find it in the (most excellent) database.

Those lines appear in some versions of EAST VIRGINIA BLUES.

See, for example, the lyrics posted here: Lyr Add: EAST VIRGINIA BLUES # 2 (from Carter)

I suppose "marble orchard" is a euphemism for "cemetery."
