‘In my time of dying’

I didn’t know of Chris Cornell until his time of dying. I’d heard of Soundgarden but didn’t know their music.

The night before Cornell died Soundgarden played a gig in Detroit. The last song they played was a Led Zeppelin cover – In My Time of Dying.

In my time of dying, I want nobody to mourn
All I want for you to do is take my body home

Not much chance of that for Cornell.

I’m quite familiar with Led Zep but don’t know this particular song.

Listening to it now it’s not one that would have grabbed my interest . The opening lyrics are my sort of thing, but the rest no so.

    I know the song well – not from Led Zep but Bob Dylan. It was a track on the very first LP I bought. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_My_Time_of_Dying
