RIP Songs, tunes, lyrics (death, grieving, sadness)

TxTigger RIP Songs, tunes, lyrics
Ok i am trying to think of some songs to get through this:

These are what i have,

Tears in heaven
Knockin on Heaven doors
I'll be missing you
What hurts the most
Grown men Don't Cry - he ;loved that song
If I don't make it back
Free bird
stairway to heaven

Anyone have any songs that helped them through this or that they have heard at a funral.

One sweet day- Mariah Carey & Boyz to men
It's so hard to say goodbye- Boyz to men

Tigger, there is one that is a rock song - they played it at JG funeral but I honestly don't remember.
It had heaven in the title- but not one you listed.
It was done by a grunge rock type band- I just can not remember.But it really struck home to me.
I will see if I can't rack this rusted brain and pull it up.

Living Years - Mike and the mechanics.

It would have been out in 1997 thereabouts- Jerry died the year after DJ.
EDIT : Stone Temple Pilots did it .

...ever heard the highway men??!!! ....that's THE best death song! .....my favorite! ..totally.

it's called highway man by the "highway men"
the highway men are johnny cash, walon, willie, and someone else....I'll get the lyrics..it's worth a look.
Re: RIP Songs, tunes, lyrics
Highway man!!!!

willie sings:

I was a highwayman. Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five
But I am still alive.

waylon sings:

I was a sailor. I was born upon the tide
And with the sea I did abide.
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed
But I am living still.

johnny cash sings:

I was a dam builder across the river deep and wide
Where steel and water did collide
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
But I am still around..I'll always be around..and around and around and
around and around

I fly a starship across the Universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I'll be back again, and again and again and again and again.. ....
