When I go don't cry for me
In my father's arms I'll be
The wounds this world left on my soul
Will all be healed and I'll be whole
Sun and moon will be replaced
With the light of Jesus' face
And I will not be ashamed
For my savior knows my name
It don't matter where you bury me
I'll be home and I'll be free
It don't matter where I lay
All my tears be washed away
Gold and silver blind the eye
Temporary riches lie
Come and eat from heaven's store
Come and drink and thirst no more
So weep not for me my friend
When my time below does end
For my life belongs to him
Who will raise the dead again
It don't matter where you bury me
I'll be home and I'll be free
It don't matter where I lay
All my tears be washed away

Buddy Miller is a really good guitarist 
A pleasant melody, but the lyrics are frightening and represent the worst of cult thinking.  There is nothing after this life, so don't squander it, and please, don't celebrate death like it's something to look forward to.  It's an ending, not a beginning, and telling people that it's gonna be great is just bullshit.  Instead, concentrate on making this life better if you can.  Stop telling people that death is this great thing, prettied up in a nice melody like sugar to make the death more acceptable.  One should strive for something better, not accept this big lie that there is something waiting after we die, because there is not.
Me likey! {#Motor}   
yummy!

I have several rooms.  I've never found an invisible sky magician in any of them.

 
To be fair, finding an invisible entity of any sort (even an Earth-bound, non-magician), is pretty challenging - believe me.  I mean: they're invisible, dude.  You'd have to use a spray bottle filled with glycerin or throw a bunch of talcum powder all over the place.  Then if you don't locate them you still have to mop up and/or vacuum the room.
Great sound on this one!

A solid 9. It's not country, it's american roots music, and she wrote the song.  She is, along with Buddy, at the epicenter of american roots music excellence!  
No country zone please!

Anyone know if this is Julie Miller of Buddy & Julie Miller? I randomly caught their act in a little bar in Avalon (Santa Catalina Island), California, way back in 2001, and I was hooked, but have not heard anything from them since. Brought back a nice memory.
Cool guitar sound, and singin' too! {#Clap}
This girl has an incredible story of abuse and survival.  Her song is a testimony to her strength and faith.  Haunting.
