Musical Postcard

Put on your headphones and listen. You will love it...

Sending love and good wishes for a jubilant summertime.

Love,
G.






I'm not scared of dying,
And I don't really care.
If it's peace you find in dying,
Well then let the time be near.
If it's peace you find in dying,
And if dying time is here,
Just bundle up my coffin
'Cause it's cold way down there.
I hear that its cold way down their*Yeah, crazy cold way down their*.
[Chorus:]
And when I die, and when I'm gone,
There'll be one child born
In this world to carry on,
to carry on.
Now troubles are many, they're as deep as a well.
I can swear there ain't no heaven but I pray there ain't no hell.
Swear there ain't no heaven and I pray there ain't no hell,
But I'll never know by living, only my dying will tell.
Yes only my dying will tell.
Yeah, only my dying will tell.
[Chorus]
Give me my freedom for as long as I be.
All I ask of living is to have no chains on me.
All I ask of living is to have no chains on me,
And all I ask of dying is to go naturally.
Oh I want to go naturally.
Here I go,
Hey Hey!
Here comes the devil,
Right Behind.
Look out children,
Here he comes!
Here he comes! Hey...
Don't want to go by the devil.
Don't want to go by demon.
Don't want to go by Satan,
Don't want to die uneasy.
Just let me go naturally.
and when I die,
When I'm dead, dead and gone,
There'll be one child born in our world to carry on,
To carry on.

  9. Oh, you are all so very kind for dropping by. Really. Not sure if I could survive happily without you at this point!

    Linda and Jams - thanks for the b'day wishes. xxoo (we Portuguese people are a very kissy bunch!)

    Francis - I know the structure of the English language is complex but not knowing the difference between *there*, *they're* and *their* is just plain inexcusable. A pet peeve of mine, I guess...
