    Garth combined Kevin Welch's 'Pushin' Up Daisies' and 'The Dash' to form his version of 'Pushing Up Daisies'. Kevin wrote one of the songs with John Hadley and the other with Gary Scruggs, (sorry don't remember which), and Garth didn't take a writing credit, even though he added the last verse about his Mum. He asked Kevin Welch to come and listen to the song, and if he (Kevin) didn't approve, Garth was going to remove it from Scarecrow. Thank God Kevin Welch loved the song, as I think it's far better than the original two. I have the article somewhere on my computer, but I'm in a bit of a rush tonight.

    here's the original "pushing Up Daisies"
    PUSHING UP DAISIES

    Sometimes I tell you the way that I'm feel
    I think that I'm going crazy
    Gotta tell myself man it ain't that big a deal
    It's better than pushing up daisies

    I slip and stumble and roll down the hill
    Trying to impress the ladies
    Once played the fool I guess I always will
    It's better than pushing up daisies

    I walk a high wire with no safety net
    God only knows what saves me
    All that I know is it ain't over yet
    Not till I'm pushing up daisies

    I've seen the arrows of death little quiver
    Come so close they actually grazed me
    I've seen the blood and I've felt the cold shiver
    Still I ain't pushing up daisies

    Standing here leaning on my windowsill
    Dreaming of a sky so blue
    Pushing up daisies out there on the hill
    It's the last thing that I'll ever do

    Sometimes my heart is as true as a child
    Sometimes my heart it betrays me
    Breaks right in two every once in a while
    But it's better than pushing up daisies

    Standing here leaning on my windowsill
    Dreaming of a sky so blue
    Pushing up daisies out there on the hill
    It's the last thing that I'll ever do
    "Pushing Up Daisies" written by Kevin Welch & John Hadley.

    I haven't been able to find anything on "The Dash"

    anyone? lol
