    Ok Dragon, tell me your thoughts.. that song always made me rather sad, felt it was about someone that was out of touch with things, which we all in different ways. I would really like to hear what you have to say

    Anyone and everyone who would possibly be handling my funeral knows to play...

    Too Old To Rock and Roll - To Young to Die

    The old Rocker wore his hair too long,
    wore his trouser cuffs too tight.
    Unfashionable to the end --- drank his ale too light.
    Death's head belt buckle --- yesterday's dreams ---
    the transport caf' prophet of doom.
    Ringing no change in his double-sewn seams
    in his post-war-babe gloom.

    Now he's too old to Rock'n'Roll but he's too young to die.

    He once owned a Harley Davidson and a Triumph Bonneville.
    Counted his friends in burned-out spark plugs
    and prays that he always will.
    But he's the last of the blue blood greaser boys
    all of his mates are doing time:
    married with three kids up by the ring road
    sold their souls straight down the line.
    And some of them own little sports cars
    and meet at the tennis club do's.
    For drinks on a Sunday --- work on Monday.
    They've thrown away their blue suede shoes.

    Now they're too old to Rock'n'Roll and they're too young to die.

    So the old Rocker gets out his bike
    to make a ton before he takes his leave.
    Up on the A1 by Scotch Corner
    just like it used to be.
    And as he flies --- tears in his eyes ---
    his wind-whipped words echo the final take
    and he hits the trunk road doing around 120
    with no room left to brake.

    And he was too old to Rock'n'Roll but he was too young to die.
    No, you're never too old to Rock'n'Roll if you're too young to die.

    I don't want a freaking dry eye in the place....so I'm opting for bagpipe music, there is something about the shrill of the pipes that sends shivers down everyone's spine especially at funerals. And i get a state service for gratis..part of what I was promised for 27 years of service to the community. Piper at the gate!

    Bagpipes would be real cool Jonsey......
    but after the pipes they'll play "Sound of Silence" for me.

    The Byrds - Ballad Of Easy Rider

    The river flows
    It flows to the sea
    Wherever that river goes
    That's where I want to be
    Flow river flow
    Let your waters wash down
    Take me from this road
    To some other town

    All he wanted
    Was to be free
    And that's the way
    It turned out to be
    Flow river flow
    Let your waters wash down
    Take me from this road
    To some other town

    Flow river flow
    Past the shaded tree
    Go river, go
    Go to the sea
    Flow to the sea

    The river flows
    It flows to the sea
    Wherever that river goes
    That's where I want to be
    Flow river flow
    Let your waters wash down
    Take me from this road
    To some other town
