A song about getting old. But it is still preferable to be able to go to a funeral than to be the main attraction.:-) In the US a "viewing" is another term for a wake or calling hours.

Any proceeds or tips from this song will benefit the good work of the Huntington's Disease program at the University of Connecticut Health Center where my wife Kathy gets treatment and I get support. UConn is doing stem cell research and helping patients and families like ours. Huntington’s Disease is the genetic disease that took the life of Woody Guthrie. It is neurodegenerative disorder that causes problems with emotional control, memory and movement, and eventually leads to death.
