Gone Fishing


If someone should ask for me,
tell ’em heaven is where I’ll be.
I’ve finished all my life’s chores,
and now I fish on heaven’s shores.

The view is grand and the fishing’s great,
but I yearn for you as I wait.

I’ll save a spot on the river’s bend,
for all those, I call family and friend.

But for now, head out to sea
and make a cast in memory,
to all the good times

that you had,with me-.


And if the fish no longer bite
or seem no longer worth the fight,
because it’s me that you are missin’,
don’t worry – be glad – I’ve only gone fishin’.
