Song by Mark Grigg

My Old Man by Mark Grigg (Youngest son of Alan and Rita Grigg)

The tears have all been shed now,
Weve said our last goodbyes.
His souls been blessed,
hes laid to rest
And its now I feel alone.
He was more than just a father 
a teacher, my best friend.
And he still can be heard,
in the tunes we shared,
When we played them on our own.

Chorus:
I will never forget him
For he made me what I am
Tho he may be gone,
Memories linger on
And I miss him de old man.

As a boy hed take me walking
Over paddocks, hills and flats
And hed show me things not known to kings
A secret between me and him
Like the colours of the sunsets
As they span the southern skies
And how to shoot and drive a ute
Along a sandy track

Chorus:
I will never forget him
For he made me what I am
Tho he may be gone,
Memories linger on
And I miss him de old man
.


I thought hed 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, so much left unsaid, no second chance
To give thanks for everything hes done

Chorus:
I will never forget him
For he made me what I am
Tho he may be gone,
Memories linger on
And I miss him de old man.
