October 8, 1912- July 6, 2006

















Nobody knows what waits ahead

Beyond the earth and sky
Lie-d Lie-d Lie
I'm not afraid to die

And there the work of my own hand
Be broken by and by
Lie-d Lie-d Lie
I'm not afraid to die

Sometimes it finds me fast asleep
And wakes me where I lie
Lie-d Lie-d Lie
I'm not afraid to die

Forget my sins upon the wind
My hobo soul will rise
Lie-d Lie-d Lie
I'm not afraid to die

Lie-d Lie-d Lie
I'm not afraid to die

-Gillian Welch

I love Gillian Welch. Have you ever seen her live? The photo is also amazing.

I'm sorry, I didn't see the title the first time I looked at this. I am also sorry for your loss. I hope it was as painless as possible.
