"And if I go, before Im old
Oh brother of mine, please don't forget me if I go
And if I die, before my time
Oh sweet sister of mine, do not regret me if I die"
About a year ago I was driving my dad to radiation treatment, and this song came on from a mixtape CD I had burned him when we went down to SF for his surgery. The lyrics and the tonality are both powerful. I knew he would dig it. He said to me, "I want you to play this at my funeral" while fighting back some tears.
That's why I put it on the mix.
I was just driving down Sierra Street and it came on my iPod in the shuffle. I hadn't heard it since the wake. I'm driving the same car I was, but there is nobody sitting next to me.
