lyrics

Daddy when you're ready the coffee's done
It'll be a little while before they come
So while your waiting for the others
Won't you please tell me another
Of the tales about the many things you've done
Tell the one about old Mike again
How old hunting dogs can be your closest friend
Oh dad I love the way
You bring back your yesterday's
Tell the one about old Mike again

chorus
Silver hair and smiling clear blue eye's
Nobody else I know is half as wise
One day I know you'll be gone
but your memory will live on
When we tell our kids the things that grandpa did

Mama cried when you went off to war
So afraid you'd die alone on foreign soil
From the stories that you tell
War was like a living hell
Old vets don't get a hero's welcome anymore
You nurtured seven children with your wisdom
Its because of you I think we'll do just fine
But now that we're all grown raising families of our own
We sure miss the way you took us back in time

To any in the many who have heard the powerful voice of Ginny McAfee, you will be pleased to hear that she will be in the studio in 2013 focusing on original material!

Given the fact Ginny has been surrounded by music since the womb and several of the songs to be released were written during her stay there, she feels it is less coincidence and more like fate.
