Rock star Chris Cornell sang a poignant rendition of “In My Time of Dying” for his band’s final song during a concert in Detroit late Wednesday night before he was found dead inside his hotel room, sources said.
Cornell, the lead singer of Audioslave and Soundgarden, died at the age of 52 after hanging himself, officials said.
“In My Time of Dying,” which has been covered by Bob Dylan and Led Zeppelin, contains lyrics referencing Jesus and heaven, and deals with death and mortality. It tells about the things the singer has achieved in life as well as the way they would like to be remembered in death, according to the Telegraph.
The lyrics include the lines: “In my time of dying, want nobody to mourn / All I want for you to do is take my body home / Well, well, well, so I can die easy.”
