    I remember the song but the only words remember is the opening line, "Hank, let's talk about your daddy...".

    It shouldn't be hard to find. Just type "The Conversation lyrics" into your browser.

    Now, there's also a traditional song called "Oh, Death", that was done by the Stanley Brothers, Olabelle Reed, Ralph Stanley and Keith Whitley, and Ralph Stanly, among others.

    It goes back ages, but was made popular to younger listeners in the movie, "Oh Brother, Where Are Thou".

    Could that be the one you're thinking of?

    I'm not sure, I'm looking for it for a friend and he doesn't remember the words. It is a conversation with death and a christian song. If you give me the words, I'm sure I'll be able to identify it. I don't really think that that is the right one(last one you mentioned) but I'm not sure. -Alycia [​IMG]

    Oh death
    Oh death
    Won't you spare me over til another year

    Well what is this that I can't see
    With ice cold hands taking hold of me
    Well I am death none can excel
    I'll open the door to heaven or hell

    Whoa death someone would pray
    Could you wait to call me til another day
    The children pray the preacher preached
    Time and mercy is out of your reach

    I'll fix your feet til you can't walk
    I'll lock your jaw til you can't talk
    I'll close your eyes so you can't see
    This very hour come and go with me

    In death I come to take the soul
    Leave the body and leave it cold
    To drop the flesh off of the frame
    The earth and worms both have a claim

    Oh death
    Oh death
    Won't you spare me over til another year

    My mother came to my bed
    Place a cold towel upon my head
    My head is warm my feet are cold
    Death is a movin upon my soul

    Oh death how you're treatin me
    You close my eyes so I can't see
    Well you're hurtin my body you make me cold
    You run my life right out of my soul

    Oh death please consider my age
    Please don't take me at this stage
    My wealth is all at your command
    If you'll remove your icy hands

    Oh the young the rich or poor
    All alike to me you know
    No wealth no land no silver or gold
    Nothin satisfies my but your soul

    Oh death
    Oh death
    Won't you spare me over til another year
    Won't you spare me over til another year
    Won't you spare me over til another year

    Nope. Wrong one. I talked to him today and he said that it is a conversation with death that the Devil had. The Devil asked death if it still had Jesus and death says yes. On day 2 he asks again and Death says yes, rich and powerful, ect. have died and haven't had power over him. On day 3 the Devil tells Death that they should throw a party or whatever and "You still have Him, don't you, Death?" And well, yeah, Death didn't have Him anymore. Anyway, my friend said that they are gonna order a CD with it on there and he'll send it to me when he gets it. It might be a while but I'll post it when I get it. Thanks!

    THE CONVERSATION
    In the beginning, God created man
    In His own image, formed with His own hand
    But Satan, old Satan, tempted man to fall
    God had to find a sacrifice to die once and for all
    To die once and for all
    So He sent His Son to die and oh, the pain He bore
    They laid Him in a borrowed tomb, the stone held fast the door
    The saints all tell a story I'm about to tell
    About a conversation from the pits of Hell
    from the pits of Hell
    Tell me death tell me, oh death hear my plea
    Do you still have Jesus, or did you set Him free?
    This is now the first day, they've laid Him in the ground
    Tell me oh death, tell me, can you hold Him down?
    Can you hold Him down?
    Satan, oh Satan, Satan hear me well
    I promise, oh I promise that I shall not fail
    That I shall not fail
    Tell me death, tell me, this is the second day
    Do you still have Jesus, or did He get away?
    Did He get away?
    Satan, oh Satan, hear me now once more
    The greatest kings and rich men have walked through my dark door
    This Jesus is no different; He's just a mortal man
    And I make this vow to you; He won't escape my hand
    He won't escape my hand
    Tell me death, tell me, tell me, don't be slow
    Do you still have Jesus, or did you let Him go?
    He's been dead for three days, the victory is won
    It's time for celebration; we've overcome God's Son
    We've overcome God's Son...Ha, Ha, Ha!!!
    Satan, oh Satan, hear me what I say
    This morning, oh this morning the stone was rolled away
    I just could not stop Him; I could not hold Him down
    With power, oh great power, He rose up from the ground!
    He rose up from the ground!
    He has risen, He has risen
    Death where is your sting?
    He has risen, He has risen
    Proclaim Him King of kings!
    He has risen, He has risen
    He lives forevermore
    He has risen, He has risen
    Proclaim Him Lord of lords!
    Proclaim Him Lord of lords!
