I think maybe his "Con te partiro" (without that annoying Sarah Brightman) is a beautiful song for a funeral. I personally would like "Farther Along", "Stand by Me", "The Garden" and "Amazing Grace" all by Elvis.

    ^That's the first time I ever heard it too.

    I like the song Glory, Glory, Hallelujah sung by Elvis that they played while his hearse and all the cars in the funeral procession rode by.

    I Am Weary (Let Me Rest) - The Cox Family
    From: O Brother, Where Art Thou? Soundtrack

    Kiss me mother kiss your darlin'
    Lay my head upon your breast
    Throw your loving arms around me
    I am weary let me rest

    Seems the light is swiftly fading
    Brighter scenes they do now show
    I am standing by the river
    Angels wait to take me home

    Kiss me mother kiss your darlin'
    See the pain upon my brow
    While I'll soon be with the angels
    Fate has doomed my future now

    Through the years you've always loved me
    And my life you've tried to save
    But now I shall slumber sweetly
    In a deep and lonely grave

    Kiss me mother kiss your darlin'
    Lay my head upon your breast
    Throw your loving arms around me
    I am weary let me rest
    I am weary let me rest

    It is such a beautiful song. Not really sad/sad..but just beautiful in a very simple and special way.

    Being serious this time, I want a black gospel choir singing. Any song right after they sing Oh Happy Day.

    You probably mean An American Trilogy?

    Leo's Lyrics Database - Elvis Presley - American Trilogy lyrics


    Oh I wish I was in the land of cotton
    Old times there are not forgotten
    Look away, look away, look away Dixieland

    (background singers)
    Oh I wish I was in Dixie, away, away
    In Dixieland I take my stand to live and die in Dixie

    For in Dixieland, I was born
    Early Lord one frosty morning
    Look away, look away, look away Dixieland

    Glory, glory hallelujah
    Glory, glory hallelujah
    Glory, glory hallelujah
    His truth is marching on

    So hush little baby
    Don't you cry
    You know your daddy's bound to die
    But all my trials Lord, will soon be over

    Glory, glory, hallelujah
    His truth is marching on
    His truth is marching on

    Stairway to Heaven, just for the sheer cheesiness of having that played at a funeral!

    Or Champagne Supernova, by Oasis
