Music Monday - 20081117

What a crazy year this has been. It just does not seem to slow down - and from what I've been told it never really does slow down. :/ Yesterday I had the chance to visit with my Grandmother, which was really nice because she is my last living Grandparent. While we were sitting around watching her Cincinnati Bengals take the Eagles to a tie her cell phone rang to the tune of When the Saints Go Marching in... so that is my song for today. :)
When the Saints Go Marching In We are trav'ling in the footsteps Of those who've gone before And we'll all be reunited, On a new and sunlit shore, Oh, when the saints go marching in, Oh, when the saints go marching in Lord how I want to be in that number When the saints go marching in And when the sun begins to shine And when the sun begins to shine Lord, how I want to be in that number When the sun begins to shine Oh, when the saints go marching in, Oh, when the saints go marching in Lord how I want to be in that number When the saints go marching in Oh, when the trumpet sounds its call Oh, when the trumpet sounds its call Lord, how I want to be in that number When the trumpet sounds its call Oh, when the saints go marching in, Oh, when the saints go marching in Lord how I want to be in that number When the saints go marching in
I've always liked that song. Of course it is a reference to our being called home and being reunited with our brothers and sisters who have been called home before us, where we will go and worship the Lord together and finally in His presence.

Great song. There was a time when I didn't like "dead songs" (songs about dying), but they've grown on me over the years. Thanks for sharing!
