Today I drove the old country roads
that my Forefathers called home
I was searching for a part of my past
because to me there was nothing they owed.
I found the old country ball field
beside the old country church
It sit’s there quietly now
nothing moving but the wind-blown dirt
I stopped at the side of the road
and in my mind I was watching the game
And as I drove away
my Dad waved goodbye
I swear I saw a tear in his eye!
