about

Chris' grandfather passed away in the fall of 2020 after living his last years with Alzheimer's. "My grandfather is the greatest man I ever knew.  He fought in WWII, then worked on the railroad the rest of his life. He was a man in the truest sense. This song is about his life and the end of it."

lyrics

Hey my old man, how’ve you been?
Are you still looking for your friend?
Have you seen his ghost, has he been around?
He will be found.
 
Hey my old man, where you going?
Could you find the time, time’s folding
Well you’re far from home and feel alone,
wanna to go home.

(Chorus)
People say we're like the funny clowns beneath the big top
And I agree we’ve had the best time of our lives
Don’t be forgotten
You won’t be forgotten
Don’t be forgotten
You are home

Hey my old man, remember me,
I loved your life, it was so free
You will always be my greatest dream,
My greatest dream.
 
(Chorus)
People say we're like the funny clowns beneath the big top
And I agree we’ve had the best time of our lives
Don’t be forgotten
You won’t be forgotten
Don’t be forgotten
You are home
