Song Description

A non-specific song about a friend's death the way I would hope someone would write about me after I'm gone.

Story Behind the Song

I sang it at Maggie's memorial service---she loved the old roses, Hank Williams Sr., and there was indeed a double rainbow as we came out of the church.



There's a clear mountain stream flowing somewhere tonight,
On a journey into the unknown.
There's a bluebird that's whistling a loving "Godspeed",
And an old weeping willow to mourn.
There's a brand-new angel in heaven tonight,
Outshining the glow from the moon,
A brand-new angel shaking hands with old Hank,
Take your fiddle and give us a tune.

Some old-fashioned roses are waving goodbye,
Summer sun sinking low in the west.
The journey is over, your race is well run,
Weary traveler, come home now and rest. (chorus)

Remember the rainbow, it was double that day,
God's promise spread out on the sky,
Remember the loved ones who wait for us there
Where the music and the love never die. (chorus)
