Thread Name: What song do you want at your funeral?
Subject: RE: What song do you want at your funeral?
Strange that a little-heard Dylan song ("Lay down your weary tune") features so frequently. I would be one of my choices, too. Along with Randy Newman's "Old Man's Song".

When I still went to church and had some vestiges of faith, I wanted "Just as I am" to the tune from "Olivet to Calvary".

Now I want a melodeon to play "Parting Glass" as my ashes are scattered round buoy 9 on Holyfield Lake in the Lee valley, where I sail my Wayfarer when I have time. I then want the melodeon thrown in after the tune is finished! That would be my last good deed for humanity!
