I need a song for a funeral.

My step mom and I are looking for a song for my dad's funeral. He was a true country cowboy. We have 3 picked out but she wants another one.
The ones we have:
Amazing Grace (in bagpipes, we are Irish)
The Dance
Cowboys rides away

Does anyone else know of a song? She has Please Remember by LeeAnn Rimes but it doesn't fit that well.
TIA

  • "You'll Be There" - George Strait
    I heard this song on the way home from the funeral of a very dear friend who was like a second father to me. I still think about him every time I hear it to this day. Here is a link to the lyrics. There's a live video of George singing it on YouTube but it isn't of very good quality. It's a beautiful song that's very fitting for a cowboy.

    I'm very sorry for your loss.
