I was thinking of that when I wrote that.  Bruce Bradley usually 
would play a brief excerpt from "Grandpa's Grave."  Occasionally, he 
played more, possibly the whole thing.  I used to wonder what it was 
and always assumed there was more to it, since what we heard didn't 
seem to make sense completely.
