lyrics

Granddad’s truck is rotting in the yard, weeds all around
the tires have sunken deep into the mud
if it weren’t so broken down I’d take it into to town
but it’s rusted out the same color as blood

His old flag’s a hanging on my wall there in the sun
I count the stars there’s only forty-eight
the anchor that I had tattooed in his name now is gone
As all my memories of him start to fade

chorus:
Though I’ve been told many times that he was proud
I wish that I could hear it, said out loud
Tonight Im missing you just like I miss the sun
That goes away whenever evening comes

I got a nice place in the woods with a few acres of land
the same place where my mother used to come
i framed the photo of us, when you first held my hand
after driving up the 5 from dusk till dawn

And I tell my friends that we would sail when I was just a girl
you taught me to tie a knot that wouldn’t budge
sometimes when the wind picks up and it gets into my curls
I think of all the ways you showed me love
