Alaska Commercial Fishermen's Memorial


When I Am Gone

When I am Gone,
Yes, Have Passed Away,
Cremate My Body
And Then I Pray
Youíll Spread My Ashes
Orí The Sea,
For That Is Where
I Long To Be.

I May Be Gone
And Yet I Feel
I'll Always Stand
Before The Wheel.

And Iíd Like To Know
Iím In Godís Hands
To Guide My Ship
Where He Commands.
