Dr. Ralph Stanley



On the Death of Dr. Ralph Stanley

All things fall into place
Eventually
The reading is over
The book is closed,
And put back on the shelf
Where parting is no more
Where no storm rages.
Oh, the rock of ages.

You were not spared,
But you shall have your
Reward
Sit down at the picnic
Dinner on the ground
Catch a cloud
And go
On up to that high atmosphere.

We'll sing here,
Spared for another year.

Goodnight, hallelujah 
Goodnight
Amen.
