The Rational Mind (my simple prayer) Parts I & II - 13:29 by Papa Mali

The Rational Mind
(My Soul Is At Peace With My Maker)
By Papa Mali Welbourne

My soul is at peace with my maker
My conviction is as strong, as my faith is blind
The truth, as we know it, gets harder to find
When we put all our faith In the rational mind.

You won't see me in church on Sunday
And you may not approve of the company I keep
But go easy on me and I'll mention your name
When I say my nightly prayers as I lay me down to sleep

As I lay my body down, close my eyes upon the day
Won't you hear my simple prayer
Oh Lord, this I pray
Keep my woman free from harm; keep my children safe and warm
And show me a sign so that I may find a way

As I lay my poor body down, close my eyes upon the day
Won't you hear my simple prayer
Oh Lord, this I pray
Keep my loved ones free from harm
Keep my children safe and warm
And show me a sign, so that I might find my way

My soul is at peace with my maker

Can't remember if the words were appropriate, just the first thing I thought of.

Maybe the Streets of Laredo would be better.

Whatever my wife's least favorite songs is, going to have to be the one with a long electric guitar solo. I want to get the last jab in.

So probably Stranglehold by Ted Nugent or Freebird by Lynyrd Skynyrd

Gordon Lightfoot, "The Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald".  Twice.  >:D  (best song ever for getting people to leave at the end of a party)

I've spent some time over the last few years thinking about this.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=UQ0ww54P-10

My first thought was Amazing Grace on the bagpipes. But I went with this acoustic version of something to remind you.
Sometimes we carry more weight then we owe.
And sometimes goes on and on and on.

Did that a few times. Didn't want to have orange earplugs showing in the video for the family. They played taps. They fired the salute, I was closest to the honor guard and they did not have blanks for the M-14s, but line launching charges. Lot more boom. Dixie cup full of powder, very difficult to not move with guns firing behind you, why no doc, can't imagine why my hearing is perma-forked.
