When I die and they lay me to rest. Gonna go to the place that's best.

When I lay me down to die. Goin' up to the Spirit in the sky.

Goin' up to the Spirit in the sky. That's where I'm gonna go when I die.

When I die and they lay me to rest. Gonna go to the place that's the best.

Prepare yourself, you know it's a must, gotta have a friend in Jesus.

So you know that when you die, He's gonna recommend you to the Spirit in the sky.

Gonna recommend you to the Spirit in the sky. That's where you're gonna go when you die.

When you die and they lay you to rest you're gonna go to the place that's best.

Never been a sinner, I never sinned, I got a friend in Jesus.

So you know that when I die, He's gonna set me up with the Spirit in the sky.

Oh, set me up with the Spirit in the sky, that's where I'm gonna go when I die.

When I die and they lay me to rest, I'm gonna go to the place that's best.

Go to the place that's best.

 

Norman Greenbaum wrote this song back in the 1970's. He used his kazoo and other folk instruments to compose the melody, never figuring that it would be digitally reproduced as it is today. Perhaps that is why the melody of "Spirit in the Sky" sounds so very tinny here. I don't suppose that the original kazoo sound can ever be properly reproduced. I do have to admit though that the good people at Crescendo did their best.

R.I.P.

The world is made up of two kinds of people--those who follow NASCAR racing and those who wonder why anyone would. But even the latter group had to grasp the racing world's shock Sunday, when legendary driver Dale Earnhardt Sr. was killed in a crash in the Daytona 500. The roguish North Carolina native, beloved as a throwback to NASCAR's rough-and-ready Southern origins during a period when it was evolving into a sport with mainstream appeal, was also one of the best drivers ever--and, sadly, as the Tribune's Ed Hinton noted, "the greatest American driver ever to die racing."

This whole Page is dedicated to one of our new Spirits in the sky, Dale Earnhardt, Sr.

The song you are listening to is, of course, "Spirit in the Sky" composed by Norman Greenbaum. He also wrote the lyrics.

The square box above is what is called a Recommend-it Box. I have put it here so that it will be easier for you to forward this Page and share it with others. Here is how it works. You click on the box and another comes up on your screen. There will be a place for you to put your screen name and address and the name and address of everyone you want to email it to. There is even a place for you to put a small personal message if you want to. Then all you have to do is click on the SEND button and off it goes, a sort of little gift of love from you. Don't worry if you find out later that you have forgotten to send it to someone. You can go back and use the box just as many times as you wish. It goes with the Page so the people you send it to can use it also. Since this system pays for itself with usage, I do hope you will consider using it often.
