We are terminal beings, moving faster to nothingness as we age, or so it seems. Reasoning and science argue for 'nothingness' but does the will have a say? The heart? Old Gabriel might have something to say, or blow ... after all. This song was played by Bob Fischer on his BBC Radio Tees Saturday evening show 10 - 12 p.m. 16th August 2014.

Lyrics

Old Gabriel’s Horn

When I was young, you were a stranger
Hallowed and holy be thy name
You took the child away from danger
You took the old man from his pain

Well now I see you at my shoulder
Your silver breath is in my hair
You know I thought you’d feel much colder
Your silver breath is everywhere

Will you play me, like you play old Gabriel’s horn?
Or will you play me for a fool?
Will you play me, like you play old Gabriel’s horn?
When the saints go marching through
I’ll walk hand in hand with you

In this new world, I’m not a stranger. In this new world, I’m not in pain
In this new world, I am the arranger. In this new world, I’m not to blame

Will you play me, like you play old Gabriel’s horn?
Or will you play me for a fool?
Will you play me like you play old Gabriel’s horn?
When the saints go marching through
I’ll walk hand in hand with you
