1. Elders

From the recording Elders


There was a funeral, but I didn't go
It seems at the time, cuz I didn't know
Just what I'd be missin' 'til much later on
But just cuz I'm wishin' doesn't make 'em less gone

Funny folk had my father, a Navy dad born midwest
And his wife with a bible a little tight to her chest
How she dreamed like a poet, but loved like a gale
That delivers cool waters and stings you with hail

How I love all my elders
cuz in them we're blessed
Let's forgive the departed
and God bless the rest
