Shiver Me Timbers - Tom Waits

I have always loved this song and have told the wife I would like it played at my funeral. It is by Tom Waits.I do not know if he wrote it about death but it bears that meaning with me.

"I'm leaving my family, leaving all my friends
My body's at home but my hearts in the wind"

"So swallow me (as in the earth) don't follow me"

"Many before me have been called by the sea"
