Week Twenty: “Lies to Tell Upon My Death”

We lost a great man
He was our best friend
Now he is bound for
the promised land
where none of pleasure will end

He never told a lie
He’d give the shirt off his back
Songs about Jesus
would make him cry
And he bought his suits off the rack

We all will miss him so much
We all will miss him so much
We all regret calling him names
We will long for one last touch

He never got upset
when life would treat him wrong
He had a smile
you won’t forget
and he knows his way around a song

He always paid his debts
He never took a drink
He once played short stop
for the Mets
And was smarter than all y’all might think

He had a true love
you’d have to see to believe
She always went beyond
and above
and never stepped out with his buddy Steve

We lost a good man
We lost a good man
His life was worth a damn
