lyrics

Good gracious, your father!
Tailor-tied for a tale, but still Father’s taller than them tales.
Take Father when wolves followed
And twelve attacked in the woods
But not once did Father let me go.
Your father warned me, “Dear, keep close.”

Your father wounded, waiting, waged war with wolf.
Father ripping wolf limb from limb.
We watched as weary weasel wolves went weeping.
He would’ve wanted you to know.

Good gracious, your father!
Tailor-tied for a tale, but no tale quite Father-tall be told.
Take Father when markets crashed.
He would pick through the rock and break his back
All to warm our stove. Your father’s toiling soaked the coals.

And did Father heed the calls as posters pointed?
Father was first aboard the ship.
We watched as weary wives of warriors were weeping.
They would’ve wanted you to know.

Your father died that day a glorious hero.
Forget who you think you saw on that train!
Your father left us all, that’s all that matters.
I think that’s all that you should know.
