Subject: Upbeat songs about death
From: ChillToad
Date: 26 Mar 10 - 07:18 AM

I'm putting together a short set (6 to 8 songs or so) with a common theme of death or dying. There's a huge number (thats one problem!)of tragic, poignant, pathetic etc songs to choose from , but I'd like to end on a more upbeat note. After we've all had a good cry over Barbara Allen or The Band played Waltzing Matilda, I'd like to "leave 'em laughing when I go". Suggestions please.

Was 'Forest Lawn' not an early Tom Paxton song? Great rhythms and opportunity for hamming it up.
And the 'Still gonna die' song mentioned earlier has the added advantage of refrain lines for audience participation.

Could well have been Tom Paxton or even Tom Lehrer (Forest Lawn); But I have only heard one person sing it,and that was Herr Deutschendorf,or whatever his name was--only called Denver 'cos he liked it there.(So what of Don Henley ?? Though I've never seen him here !!).

I was just going to say that, Dave. Heartily recommend this song.

Also possible Loudon Wainwright's 'Suicide Song'

When you get the blues and you want to shoot yourself in the head
It's allright it's allright go ahead
Do the monkey do the pony do the slop do the hulahoop twist
Cut your throat cut your throat cut your wrists
When your tire of worldy toil shuffle off this mortal coil
Turn your body back to soil
it's ok it's ok
When you get hungup hang yourself up by your neck
What the hell what the hell what the heck

Here are the lyrics I didn't have handy this morning.

"Send Me To Glory in a Glad Bag" - Don & Mim Carlson/Steve Mason

People tell me I ought to save my money
so that I could be layed away in style
In a walnut box with all the fancy trimmin'
Vacuum sealed to keep me fresh awhile
But...

(chorus:)
Send me to glory in a Glad bag
Don't waste a fancy coffin on my bones
Just put me out on the curb next Tuesday
Let the sanitation local bear me home

Sell all my worldly possessions
and buy yourself a case or two of Pabst
Let the empties be my memorial tombstone
Engraven with this epitaph

(chorus)

If I should die upon the eve of Christmas
just place my baggie by the Christmas tree
And when the children; they open all their goodies
The big surprise would be the death of me

(chorus)

But maybe I am not bound for glory
but to that other place I would not choose
and if it seems that I'm headed in that direction
then an oven bag would be the thing to use

(chorus x 2)

"One Less Mouth To Feed" - Peter Alsop

Well Livvy, lately life's been lousy
And I know that you're upset
But life won't get no better
If you can't learn to forget
Cryin' won't bring John-Boy back,
He's out there on his own
And I hope that he is happy,
And I hope he don't come home, . .

Chorus
'Cause that's one less mouth to feed
One less mouth to feed
When your bluebird of happiness
Eats a poisen seed
Just look on the bright side,
That's one less mouth to feed!

Accidents will happen
It's sad the way things change
Mary Ellen fell into the well
And the water's tasting strange
Ben burned with the chicked coop
And ruined all the eggs
And Grandpa's headed toward the lake
With his moustache all ablaze, . .

Chorus
When the apple of your eye
Has a worm you didn't need

Jim-Bob sank in the river
Tryin' t'catch a frog
Lis'beth ate the dog's food
And got eaten by the dog
Erin's joined a convent,
Jason's guzzlin' gin
Grandma hitchiked to the city
To live a life of sin, . .

Chorus
When your bunny with the lucky feet
Gets flattened in the street

And now you say you're leavin' me
To find a better life
I hope Ike Godsey loves you
I hope he don't leave me his wife
The sun is shining somewhere
This house is cold as stone
And I miss you so my darling, . .
But it's great to be alone!!

Chorus
When your milk-cow of contentment
Falls asleep in the stampede
When your flower of life
Gets mowed down with the weeds
When you little lamb of innocence
Gets terminal V.D.

A resounding 2nd on Animaterra's suggestion of "I'll Fly Away"... When my late wife, Judy, was dieing she picked out all the music for the funeral and wanted the end of the church service portion to end with that song... It was very uplifting...

BTW, that song is an old hymm but was covered by alot of country/folk bands in the 70s... The Byrds have a great version...

I don't remember who wrote it nor the title but I like the song where the chorus goes:

All my life I've been your lover
Through good and bad we've both stayed true
Now I'm gone and you're still living
Just get up and start your life anew

Or my own: Golden Rockin' Chair? :)

Mama worked so hard all the days of her life
From sunrise to sundown, as mother and wife
And many a nighttime she spent on our care
But I know she is resting up there
I dreamed I saw Mama rockin' in a golden rockin' chair

Mama built the fire at the crack of each dawn
And never stopped working 'til daylight was gone
When kids cried in the nighttime she always was there
But at last Mama hasn't a care
I dreamed I aaw Mama rockin' in a golden rockin' chair

    Rockin' chair. Rockin' chair.
    Didn't know there'd be a rockin' chair
    But I know that I'll find it up there
    I dreamed I saw Mama rockin' in a golden rockin' chair

Now the years have gone by and I in my turn
Am facing my end time and what rest I have earned
I believe there is nothing my mama won't share
- and I know that I'll find her up there -
So I'll join my mama rockin' in her golden rockin' chair

It is without shame, I am. :)

The words to "The Place I am Bound" are given in the liner notes for The Kips Bay Ceili Band's "Digging In" CD. They call it "The Happiest song about death we've ever heard". The words:

As my father before me, so now I
give pause to reflect on the day that I will die.
As they lay me down in the cold of the ground
remember I am closer to the place I am bound.
A few final words will be spoken, I trust.
Be kind as you can, and lie if you must.
And remember me when I was at my best
instead of used up lying with these flowers on my chest.

Sometimes death is like a thief in the night.
He steals every treasure that is hidden in plain sight.
But I do not flatter my own memory
for I will miss you every bit as much as you'll be missing me.
I wish I could be there to brighten the mood
with friends and family and mountains of food.
Stories and memories and tales all around
but it's late and I must travel to the place I am bound.

I hope that the spirit of the Lord will not mind
if you toast me with spirits of the Irish kind.
Raise your glass as the blessing is said
"May you be in Heaven half an hour
before the devil knows you're dead."

A very brief snippet of the song may be heard at Amazon.

The liner notes list the author credit as "(Bennett) copyright 1991 Bright Avenue Songs (ASCAP)". That's all I have.

And definitely Embalming Tommy, as mentioned by Moses earlier in the thread. And while we're on the subject of Mike Sparks, there's his Jack Hamble song, about grave digging -


Oh me name it is Jack Hamble a gravedigger to my trade
Just tell me where you want it dug and leave me with me spade
And if you let me on me own and don't get in the way
I'll dig a standard eight by six in less than half a day

Leslie Sarony's version does not have the "Let's not have a sniffle, Let's have a bloody good cry..." chorus which is apparently mandatory nowadays.

This new version was popularised in the 1960s by the Clancys, and I don't recall hearing anyone else sing the Sarony version.
