I intended the 'ageing' category to cover death. In fact, in Chapter 4, and especially in the section 'My old age'', I refer to 'death and ageing' together. They are, of course, closely related. TQ.
Death in the songs is not exclusively related with ageing, because there are also various other incidents of death or hints to it, for example, “Joan Of Arc”, “A Bunch Of Lonesome Heroes”, “Seems So Long Ago, Nancy” etc. So the subject is more wide and deep.
My book about the lyrics - 'Smudging the Air' - is now also available on Kindle. It is available on amazon.co.uk and on amazon.com. https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_ss ... TSISM4W7UQ . Teresa Quayle
