A Good Spot To Die


This is a good spot to die,
safe in my baby's arms,
this is a good spot to live
in my Southland's heart.

This is a good spot to cry,
against your gentle chest,
this is a good spot to smile,
a good spot to rest.

This is a good spot to die,
under this willow tree,
this is a good spot to live,
right by my river bank.

This is a good spot to cry,
in the 'raspberry rain, '
this is a good spot to smile,
a good spot to fade away.

This is a good spot to die,
in a gentle song,
this is a good spot to live,
right where I belong.

This is a good spot to cry,
in the 'Strawberry Lake, '
this is a good spot to smile,
a good spot for a grave.

This is a good spot for a home,
a good spot for my life,
this is a good spot in your arms,
a good spot to die.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
