"Fixin' to Die"

He appeared on stage early in the four-hour night, conducting and singing with a band. Later, he played and sang several tunes, including "I'm So Glad" as well as "Fixin' to Die," a song he had performed many times before. This time, though, the lyrics turned out to be prophetic:

Feeling funny in my mind, Lord
I believe I'm fixing to die
Well, I don't mind dying
But I hate to leave my children crying
