Sorry to hear about your buddy. I never thought about playing a funeral and I don't know your buddy but I think Jimi's 'Pali Gap' is pretty nice, soulful as is 'Hey Baby - New Rising Sun' and 'Angel'.
Take care

I have been looking around what I have come up with so far is a John Kay song
Dance to my song

this will work for one tune thanks for the condolences.. another good guy goes too early :(

And we carried him down the hollow
Where we laid his kind soul down to rest
Then we sang until the dawn just to him memory
And found these words to be his last request:

When my time draws nigh stay near me
And when I die will you dance to my song
When I'm gone won't you come and cheer me
On my journey back home where I belong

Now how could he know
Just where he would go
And what did he see that made him run so free
And why do I feel, that's he's far away and right beside me still

In the night somebody touched me
And the sea rolled out his name
While I thought of all our times together
His echo keeps callin' back again:

When my time draws nigh stay near me
And when I die will you dance to my song
When I'm gone won't you come and cheer me
On my journey back home where I belong

At my dad's funeral we had Garth Brook's The Dance. It was the perfect song for him, but probably wouldn't be for everyone. At a friend's funeral last year we had Wish You Were Here. Again, fairly specific to the person. Funeral music depends a lot on the individual who passed. Good luck with whatever you choose and hugs to the family.
