A bagpiper was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man who had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper's cemetery in Glasgow.
As the bagpiper was not familiar with the area, He got lost and, being a typical man, didn't stop for directions.

He finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch. He felt badly and apologised to the men for being late.


He went to the side of the grave and looked down and the coffin lid was already in place. He didn't know what else to do, so he started to play.

The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. He played out his heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. He played like he'd never played before for this homeless man.

And as he played "Amazing Grace", the workers began to weep. They wept, he wept, they all wept together. When he finished, he packed up his bagpipes and started for his car.

As he opened the door to his car, he heard one of the workers say, "I never seen anything like that before, and I've been putting in septic tanks for twenty years"

Correct, it was posted before and deleted. It wasn't funny then, and it sure isn't funny now.
