A lot of people find much comfort in music. It has a healing quality to it, and you can usually find a song to fit any mood. Here are some lyrics that help me when I need to remember my Dad.
My Dad sang the song I’ll Fly Away often with his band, and it was also sung at his funeral:
“Some glad morning when this life is o’er, I’ll fly away.
To that home on God’s celestial shore, I’ll fly away.”
Dad called Rocky Top his “theme song”:
“Now all I know is it’s a pity life can’t be simple again.”
He was a fan of The Eagles. I remember him working in the basement at home and the song Take it Easy always seemed to be playing:
“Take it easy, take it easy. Don’t let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy.
Lighten up while you still can, don’t even try to understand.
Just find a place to make your stand, and take it easy.”
Lastly, our song was You are My Sunshine:
“You are my sunshine, my only sunshine.
You make me happy when skies are gray.
You’ll never know, dear, how much I love you.
Please don’t take my sunshine away.”
What are some songs that remind you of your loved ones? I’d love to hear about them!
