The Old Man

DREW SEMPLE Blantyre singer/songwriter with a Superb song by Phil Coulter, The Old Man.

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 a father
A teacher
my best friend
And He’ll still be heard
In the tunes we shared
When I play them on my own

(chorus)

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

(chorus)

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’s 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
