Subject: ADD: Farewell Party (Bob Gibson & Bob Connelly)
From: Joe Offer
Date: 13 Jul 11 - 02:32 AM

Here's my transcription from the Glenn Yarbrough Live at the Troubadour album:

FAREWELL PARTY
(Bob Gibson & Bob Connelly)

Don't want no tears shed for me when I'm gone,
Don't wanna hear you sing no melancholy song,
Don't let your partin' words to become a eulogy ---
Just have your ragtime band to play when you say goodbye to me.

CHORUS:
And keep that whiskey flowin', boys, and raise your glasses high,
I'm pleased to see you're here to say "Farewell" and not "Goodbye."
Keep that whiskey flowin', boys and raise your glasses high
Damn the man that dares to let my farewell party die.

Don't want no organ music bringin' people down,
Don't want no long-faced mourners always hangin' 'round,
Don't want no candles, but let the flowers stay ---
The girls can wear them in their hair when they see me on my way.
CHORUS

Roll the carpet back, my boys, and let the dancin' start,
Sing them good old songs but don't forget my part.
Invite all the girls I've known and make sure they have fun ---
Hug and kiss 'em all like I damn sure would have done.
CHORUS

And keep that whiskey flowin', boys, and raise your glasses high,
I'm pleased to see you're here to say "Farewell" and not "Goodbye."
Keep that whiskey flowin', boys and raise your glasses high
And Damn the man that dares to let my farewell party die.

Don't you dare go and let my farewell party die.

Chords, anyone? Oh well. Guess this song isn't "up there" with the more popular ones.

No, wait. Does anyone have the chords? I can probably figure them out. But if someone already has them, I would appreciate it. Thanks!

Oh, silly me! I answered my own question in another thread about funeral songs. Sheeit! Of all the things I've lost, the one I miss the most is MY MIND!

The whole title is "Damn the Man That Dares to Let My Farewell Party Die." It is by Bob Gibson.

"Keep that whiskey flowing, boys, and raise your glasses high.
Pleased to see you're here to say, 'Farewell,' and not 'Goodbye.'

Don't want no long-faced mourners always hanging round.
Don't want to hear you play no melancholy songs.
Invite all the girls I know, make sure they have fun.
Hug and kiss them all you know, the way I might have done."

Snippets I remember. Yes, not exactly PC. But I am after the sentiment. Would this be appropriate for my mother's memorial service, do you think? Obviously, it is a man singing. But it is the sentiment that she would have endorsed.

Thanks.

Saul
