OPENER - CLOSER    C4

Circle left
*Lay me down in Forest Lawn in a silver casket
Put golden flowers over my head in a silver basket

Do an allemande left and then curlique my friend
Boys run, allemande left, now weave around the ring
I want to go simply when I go
Swing with your own and promenade
**With a casket lined in fleece and fireworks spelling out "Rest in Peace"
Take me when I'm gone to Forest Lawn


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Lay me down in Forest Lawn, they understand there
They have a heavenly caller and a square dance band there


**I'll sleep beneath the flowers with piped in tapes of Kenny Bower


FIGURE    Mainstream, R-H lady progression

Head couples square thru four hands now
Round that corner dosado now
Spin chain thru and girls circulate two times
Boys are working down the middle, now you turn thru
Allemande left the corner, walk by one
Swing the right hand lady, promenade
I'll rest in peace you know, with piped in tapes of Marshall Flippo
Take me when I'm gone to Forest Lawn


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
To find a simple resting place is my desire
To lay me down with a smiling face comes a little bit higher
My likeness done in brass will stand in plastic grass
And weights and hidden springs will tip its hat to the mourners filing past

Allemande left the corner, dosado
Do an allemande left the corner, promenade
With a hundred strolling strings and chorus girls in golden wings
Take me when I'm gone to Forest Lawn

Forest Lawn Lyrics ID: 3441

Let the drum and bugle corps play Taps while cannons roar
Sixteen liveried employees sell souvenirs from the fun'ral store
I wanna go simply when I go
They'll give me a simple funeral there, I know.
With a casket lined in fleece and fireworks spelling out "Rest in Peace"
Oh, take me when I'm gone to Forest Lawn.

Oh lay me down in Forest Lawn, they understand there
They have a heavenly choir and a military band there
Just put me in their care, I'll find my comfort there
Sixteen planes in a last salute, they'll drop a cross in a parachute
I wanna go simply when I go.
They'll give me a simple funeral there, I know,
With a hundred strolling strings and topless dancers with golden wings
Oh take me when I'm gone to Forest Lawn.

Oh, come, come, come, come, come
Come to the church in the wildwood
Kindly leave a contribution in the pail.
Be as simple and as trusting as a child would
And we'll sell you the church in the dale.

To find a simple resting place is my desire
To lay me down with a smiling face comes a little bit higher
My likeness cast in brass will stand in plastic grass
While hidden weights and spring tip its hat to mourners filing past
I wanna go simply when I go.
They'll give me a simple funeral there I know
I'll lie beneath the sands
With piped-in tapes of Billy Graham
O take me when I'm gone to Forest Lawn.

Rock of Ages, cleft for me
For a slightly higher fee.

Oh take me when I'm gone to Forest Lawn.

Lyrics by Tom Paxton.
Recorded by Tom Paxton; John Denver.
