Bury my body
Lord, I don’t care where they
Bury my body
Lord, I don’t care where they
Bury my body
’cause my soul is gonna live
With God, Oh
Bury my body
Lord, I don’t care where they
Bury my body
Lord, I don’t care where they
Bury my body
’cause my soul is gonna live
With God, Oh
Lead me Jesus, lead me
Why don’t you lead me in the middle of the air
And if my wings should fail me
Won’t you provide me with another pair
Please God I don’t care where they
Bury my body
Lord, I don’t care where they
Bury my body
’cause my soul is gonna live
With God, Oh I said alright
You know it’s alright
alright

Bury my body
Lord, I don’t care where they
Bury my body
Lord, I don’t care where they
Bury my body
’cause my soul is gonna live
With God, Oh

Lead me Jesus, lead me
Why don’t you lead me in the middle of the air
And if my wings should fail me
Won’t you provide me with another pair
Please God I don’t care where they
Bury my body

Lord, I don’t care where they
Bury my body
’cause my soul is gonna live
With God, Oh I said alright
My soul, my soul, my soul
Is gonna live, with God

Aside from thinking about the cremation costs, you also have to plan the funeral service for a deceased loved one who had always been a faithful believer of God.

Choosing the right songs to play during the service is a crucial aspect of the funeral. One of the songs that you can use is one written and performed by Al Kooper entitled “Bury My Body”.

This song is perfect for those people who have lived their life through their faith in God because the song has a religious connotation. The piece basically says that people who died do not really care where the family buries the remains because their souls will be with God and that is the only thing that matters.

This tells the family of the deceased that nothing will really matter after death. No material belongings or monetary value can be brought to the other side of this life. This also shows the family that their loved one will be okay because he or she will be in the presence of God in heaven as stated in the lyrics, “because my soul is gonna live with God”.
