Just Two songs I'd like played at my funeral.



Lyrics to 'In my Life' by Johnny Cash

There are places I'll remember all my life.
Though some have changed.
Some forever, not for better,
Some have gone and some remain.

All these places have their moments,
With lovers and friends I still can recall.
Some are dead and some are living,
In my life, I've loved them all.

But of all these friends and lovers,
There is no one compares with you.
And these memories lose their meaning,
When I think of love as something new.

Though I know I'll never lose affection,
For people and things that went before.
I know I'll often stop and think about them,
In my life, I love you more.


Though I know I'll never lose affection,
For people and things that went before.
I know I'll often stop and think about them,
In my life, I love you more.
In my life, I love you more.


Written by: John Lennon & Paul McCartney






Lyrics to 'When I die' by the Waifs
When I die won't you bury me
In the town where I was born
Most of my life I've been rambling free
When I die I want to come back home

Ever since I was a baby child
I knew I was born to roam
I had to climb to the top of the hill
Just to see what lies beyond
Now seasons change and I am still the same
I don't belong to anyone
Still a piece of me will always be
Sitting in my hometown sun

In my time I have seen ten thousand setting suns
And I made my bed where I lay my head
And it never hurt anyone
It could be said that a girl like me
Ain't nothing but a prodigal son
And just like that prodigal boy I'm gonna finish off where I've begun
