"Check Your Tears at the Door" as written by Kevin Gerard Kinney and Tim Nielsen....
All my friends are crying, but do they cry for me?
For I'm standing at the pearly gates,
With centuries ahead of me
Don't cry for me I'm happy, I'm finally back home
I talked to Houdini yesterday
And my father's father's mom
Oh I'm back home, so check your tears at the door
Oh I'm back home, so check your..

The morning in the morning, sulking in the afternoon
Just pick up your head and laugh so hard
It echoes around the globe
'Cause I'm not coming back, but someday you'll be here
So I'll just wait as they waited for me
And we'll sing that song and cheer
Oh I'm back home, so check your tears at the door
Oh I'm back home, so check your...

It's the little things that I remember best
Not the holidays or the ways in the days
That you walked by my door
But sitting in front of the TV holding hands
Sitting in the kitchen making all of our plans
Whoa Whoa Whoa.

I've got so much to learn here
Don't worry about me I'm fine
Just check your tears at the door
When you leave, and get on with your life
Oh I'm back home, so check your tears at the door
Oh I'm back home, so check your tears at the door
Stop tugging on my soul, and check your
Tears at the door

    General CommentThis song is fantastic. The lyrics are tear-jerking, country & western gospel in the oldest of fashions. The music is perfectly orchestrated. A mix of Dylan-goes-Electric and Hank Williams. The organ is lush and the steel guitar weeps and cries throughout. Appropriate for a classic "death" song. Besides that, I always thought the lyric was, "my father's father's Pa". Not, "mom". In any case, this song is one of many by a great, unheralded band. Dylan, Zeppelin, Hank, John Denver and Black Sabbath come together as influences in their music. A worthy investment of time and effort to check out.
