Second in the "singles" series here in 2016. Somehow this seems to work on election day, with Daylight Savings Time at an end. Things getting Darker. Here's some soup for you to curl up with.
some say you see your people when you die —oh my
some say you only say goodbye no matter how hard you might try
some say you can’t take it when you go—and so
it’s best not to leave a thing
there’s really nothing more you can bring
and i don’t know if it’s true
there’s only one thing you can do
sing hallelujah hallelujah halleloo…
hallelujah hallelujah halleloo
when the lord comes to get you well you know just what to do
sing hallelujah hallelujah halleloo
some say a silver dollar in your hand—it can
help you when you make your way
on your final day
some say no one rob you when you’re dead—it’s said
nobody could be so mean
the worms are gonna pick you clean
and if you don’t think that’s so
it’s alright you never gonna know
the lord keeps his tally while they toil in the valley
every tom dick and sally soldiers on…
one day the rain come make us all clean—it seems
the dirt is meant to keep us down
scraping and shuffling around
one day you’ll see that kingdom in the sky—oh why
does it have to be so high?
they never gonna tell you 'til you die
just what do we have to fear to have a little heaven down here?
