Gratitude Day

(back)                                                                                                                           (listen / download)

When the words begin to fade away
Because you’ve said all you needed to say
When the sound dies down and the parking lot is bare

Does the heart stop pumping blood
And the soul sink into the mud
Or can an average man find a new plan anywhere

The last Thursday in a cold November
Time standing still Wisconsin sky is gray
Too easy to forget won’t you help me remember
To say a little prayer on Gratitude Day

Somewhere out beyond the clouds
The sun is shining even now
A little boy is playing with a model train

Wonder where it’s gonna’ take him
If those tracks will make or break him
Whistle blows long and low as the night is gettin’ late
