Lyrics

I see five little boys in faded overalls in a picture frame

And they're staring at me and leaning back on an old Model A

And one is my Grandpa.

And my Mama says that you worked real hard and life wasn't easy

But all I see is your fishing poles and the redwood trees

And it looks fun to me.

Chorus:

Tell me the tale, take me where you've been 

And I'll go too in my imagination

When I grow up, gonna be like you

Grandpa fly... fly me to the moon.

 

We go walking out through the woods, hand in hand

And I hear stories of people you knew and places you've been

That set me dreaming.

Like reaching the stars on a Blackbird's wings and sailing through the sky

Pressing on to your goals through courage and faith and claiming that prize,

Your life is written on mine.

Repeat chorus:

Bridge:

Oh these memories that you've given me will carry me through time

And the measure of a Man of Faith, is in the legacy he leaves behind

 

Repeat Chorus 2 X
