DON'T CRY FOR ME Don’t cry for me, I’m where I want to be… The good Lord heard my cries and carried me. I was ready to go; my family should know. I was tired of hospital stays, tiresome nights and tiresome days. No more doctor bills or daily pills. God came for me and that was his will. So now Family do the right thing Don’t cry for me just sing You know right from wrong Do the right thing and All get along. I love you but God love me best. Be happy I’m finally getting my Rest.
