The tears have all been shed now we've said our last goodbyes
His souls been blessed he's laid to rest and it's now I feel alone
He was more than just my father, my teacher my best friend
And He'll still be heard in the tunes we shared when I play them on my own

I never will forget him for he made me what I am
Though he may be gone memories linger on
And I miss him the old man

As a boy he'd take me walkin' by mountain field and stream
And he showed me things not known to kings and secret between him and me
Like the colours on the pheasant as he rises in the dawn
Or how to fish and make a wish beside a fairy tree

I never will forget him for he made me what I am
Though he may be gone memories linger on
And I miss him the old man

I thought he'd live forever he seemed so big and strong
But the minutes fly and the years roll by for a father and a son
And suddenly when it happened there was so much left unsaid
No second chance to tell him thanks for everything he'd done

Oh I never will forget him for he made me what I am
Though he may be gone memories linger on
God I miss him the old man
