Song Description

A conversation between God and a person ending life's long journey. Wishing to have all the things that matter in life beside them when its time to leave this world. Introspective and prayer like vocals about family and a long life, well lived. Soft Violin and Dobro highlights give this song a hauntingly warm Country feel, add to that a heart wrenching guitar solo that leads to a fading last wish.

Story Behind the Song

My wife was going Texas to support her best friend whose grandmother was dying. When I asked where in Texas she lives, my wife replied, "Comfort" And I said to myself, "she's going to die in Comfort!" And after being beside Family and Friends who have passed away, thats all any of them really wanted in the end.

These folks go for the emotional jugular in this song.

    - Tirk Wilder - Broadjam Pro Reviewer

Almost a religious experience. This traditional country song really sets a mood ...maybe a mood I don't wanna be in...but that's the whole idea, isn't it? Vocal is soooo sincere I think he must have died at the end of the 1st take. Soaring guitar break kinda sounds like someone was going to heaven. Nice work.

Lyrics

Die in Comfort

Lord its been a long road
and its been a good long life
with plenty of pot holes and bridges and many a heavy load
You know I've tried my best Lord cause you've been here with me
now please Lord listen to me
and grant this wish to me

(Chorus)
Let me die in comfort
with my family beside me
kiss my brow and hold my hand tell me it's alright
and let me die in comfort tonight

Families get so busy
but I've been slowing down memories keep us together
so pass a few around
I know I've asked for so much And you've been good to me Please Lord listen one more time, and grant this wish to me

(Chorus)
Let me die in comfort
with my family beside me
kiss my brow and hold my hand tell me it's alright
and let me die in comfort tonight
