The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Who Will Sing for Me [core]

Oft I sing for my friends, As 4 death's cold form I 1 see
When I reach my journey's 4 end, Who will 1 sing 5 for 1 me

I 5 won- (I wonder) der 1 who, Will 5 sing (will sing) for 1 me
When I come to the cross of the 4 silent sea
Who will 1 sing (who will 5 sing) for 1 me

When crowds shall gather round, And look down on me
Will they turn and walk away, Or will they sing one song for me

So I'll sing 'til the end, And helpful try to be
Assured that some friends, Will sing one song for me
