Thread Name: 'Funeral home' songs
Subject: RE: 'Funeral home' songs
For the nautical folks, nothing would go down better than a few verses of "Old Stormy" with the chorus:

To me way, hey, Stormy!
Walk 'im along, John, carry 'im along!
To me way, hey, Stormy!
Carry 'im to his burying ground!

My favorite verse borrowed another "herse song" runs:

We'll throw in stones,
We'll throw in rocks,
Walk 'im along, John, carry 'im along!
And we don't give a damn if we breaks the box!
Carry 'im to his burying ground!

Cheerily,
Charley Noble
