Thread Name: What song do you want at your funeral?
Subject: RE: What song do you want at your funeral?
For me there is but one, by Dory Previn, the last track on her Mythical Kings and Iguanas album called Going Home also.

It begins

I have flown to star stained heights on bent and battered wings
In search of mythical kings, mythical kings . . .

and finishes with a huge gospel chorus repeating the line

Going home is such a ride, going home is such a ride, isn't going home a lo-lonely ride . .

over and over.

As I am wheeled feet first down the church I will certainly cry . . .
