Songs That I Love #52 Ray Charles - Lets Go get Stoned

If you love music then I suspect at sometime you have thought of what songs you would like played at your funeral, if you haven't then maybe you should are you may be sent packing to a room full of people murdering Morning Has Broken or some other Hymn that means nothing to you!

I have mine listed and the list changes slightly every now and again but this is a constant, I want people to leave to Ray singing 'Lets Go Get Stoned' and I hope everybody does!!

Let's go get stoned Yeah....
Oh....Let's go get stoned
Let's go get stoned
Oh....Let's go get stoned
Now wait a minute
You know my baby, she won't let me in
I've Got a few pennies, I'm gonna buy myself a bottle of gin
I'm gonna call my buddy on the telephone
and say Let's go get stoned

Now Listen
You know I work so hard, all day long
Everything I try to do, Seem to always turn out wrong
That's why I wanna stop by on my way home and say
Let's go get stoned

Now let me tell ya one more thing
Ain't no harm
To have a little taste
But don't lose your cool
and start messing up a man's place
Ain't no harm to take a little nip
But don't ya fall down and bust your lip
Let's go get stoned
Oh.....Let's go get stoned
I think every body ought to come on and go with me
Let's go get stoned
Oh......Let's go get stoned
I'm gonna tell ya one more time what i'm gonna do
Let's go get stoned
Oh......Let's go get stoned
(fade out)
