A song in memory of my father.

Lyrics

So Long
Moving around while daddy sold his cloth went to the south where things really took off
He didn’t have a contract when they let him go heard times were tough I was too young to know

So we went up North to find another line we didn’t have A/C it was Summer time
But we wrote a tune it was a country song saying I’m not just moving out I’m moving on

So long dad so long you taught me right from wrong
Gave me a home where I could grow up strong
Always working hard so we could get along
Now you’re gone so long dad so long

The years flew by like a bird in the sky a moment we’re here and then we disappear
And nobody knows what’s going to be I’ll call you tomorrow we’ll have to wait and see

So long dad so long you taught me right from wrong
Gave me a home where I could grow up strong
Always working hard so we could get along
Now you’re gone so long dad so long

I sit and think about how much has been forgotten, of childhood memories
And then the later years when we went back to Queens, both of us chasing our dreams

Never really knew him for all the time we spent promised we’d travel we never went
Watching old movies singing old songs he never said goodbye always said so long

So long dad so long you taught me right from wrong
Gave me a home where I could grow up strong
Always working hard so we could get along
Now you’re gone so long dad so long
I won’t say goodbye, I’ll only say so long
