Several have inquired about the musical selections at Julie's funeral service. Below are the selections, the recording artist, and the lyrics...



Musical Selection - Husband Ron’s First Request:
“Hard Headed Woman” - Recorded by Cat Stevens


I'm looking for a hard headed woman,
One who will take me for myself,
And if I find my hard headed woman,
I won't need nobody else - no, no, no.

I'm looking for a hard headed woman,
One who will make me do my best,
And if I find my hard headed woman
I know the rest of my life will be blessed - yes, yes, yes.

I know a lot of fancy dancers,
People who can glide you on the floor,
They move so smooth but have no answers.
When you ask "Why'd you come here for?"
"I don't know" "Why?"

I know many fine feathered friends
But their friendliness depends on how you do.
They know many sure fired ways to find out the one who pays
And how you do.

I'm looking for a hard headed woman,
One who will make me feel so good,
And if I find my hard headed woman,
I know my life will be as it should - yes, yes, yes.

I'm looking for a hard headed woman,
One who will make me do my best,
And if I find my hard headed woman...


Musical Selection - Husband Ron’s Second Request:
“Never My Love” - Recorded by Stace England


You ask me if there’ll come a time
When I grow tired of you
Never my love, never my love

You wonder if this heart of mine
Will lose its desire for you
Never my love, never my love

What makes you think love will end
When you know that my whole life depends on you

You say you feel I’ll change my mind
And I won’t require you
Never my love, never my love

How can you think love will end
When I’ve asked you to spend your whole life with me

You ask me if there’ll come a time
When I grow tired of you
Never my love, never my love
Never my love, never my love


Musical Selection - Sister Rachel’s Request:
“I Won't Back Down” - Recorded by Tom Petty


Well I won't back down
No I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down

No, I stand my ground
Won't get turned around
And I keep this world from dragging me down
But I stand my ground and I won't back down

Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
Hey now, I'll stand my ground
And I won't back down

Well I know what's right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushing me around
Well I stand my ground and I won't back down

Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
Hey now, I'll stand my ground
And I won't back down

Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
Hey now, I won't back down

Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
Hey now, I'll stand my ground
And I won't back down
No, I won't back down


Musical Selection - James Gibson’s Request:
“Keep Movin On” - Recorded by Thomas Rhyant, Jr.


Keep movin on, keep movin on
Life is this way
Keep movin on, movin on, every day

Keep movin on, keep movin on
Life is this way
Keep movin on, movin on, every day

When I go to sleep at night, I add up my day,
Try to think all the things I’ve done
And debts I’ll have to pay

Oh, there is one thing that I know,
What you reap is what you sow
Keep movin on, movin on, every day

Brothers mind how what you choose
And how you treat your fellow man
If you’re like me, you’ll try and live
The very best you can

Oh, if you spread good all around,
You’ll be able to sleep when the sun goes down
Keep movin on, movin on, every day

Don’t let your dreams die every day
I know you’ve been hurting from your storm
It’s going to be all right by tonight

Keep movin on, movin on, every day
