Thread Name: What song do you want at your funeral?
Subject: RE: What song do you want at your funeral?
Joe, I think I have Goin' Home for ya. If you like my style that is-- you've heard my style on tape, so you can decide. We have done it on Saturday nights. I learned it a the funeral of a friend of Hardiman's, an Episcopal deacon. I've never heard it before or since, so I hope I haven't messed up the melody too much. You can correct me from heaven when the time comes, OK? *G*G* I'll tune in so I can hear you.

Morts, I never thought of this till you asked. There was a time in my life when I thought it would be "Bury Me in My Overalls," but now I've decided on cremation and I think people would get confused. Plus I'd hate to waste a good pair of Oshkosh B'Gosh in the fire.

But since you DID ask, all that comes to mind now is, "Wake Up Little Susie!"

Now I can't resist the idea of requiring that the choir do this one! So now when they do this at my funeral, someone will have to explain that you brought it about! *G*
