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 heavens shores.

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

Ill save a spot on the rivers bend, for all those I call family and friend.

But for now, sail out to sea and make a cast in memory

to all the good times that you had,

We – Me – Your friend, your grandpa…. Your dad

and if the fish no longer bite

or seem no longer worth the fight,

because its me that your missin’,

don’t worry – be glad I’ve only gone fishin’
