about

This song is to honor the life of my Uncle Tony Grant.
He was a wonderful man who we lost way too soon.
It is also dedicated to my Aunt Beth Grant, My cousins, Martin and Wesley, their beautiful wives, Kim and Amy, and their wonderful children, Marin, Piper, Gracie, and Colin.
It goes without saying, that Uncle Tony had an important influence on a lot of people's lives being a minister for 34 years. This goes out to anyone who has had an opportunity to share in his influence.
This was written by Doc and Rosa Lee Watson.

lyrics

God's given us years of happiness here
Now we must part
And as the angels come and call for you
The pains of grief tug at my heart

Oh my darling
My darling
My heart breaks as you take your long journey

Oh the days will be empty
The nights so long without you my love
And when god calls for you I'm left alone
But we will meet in heaven above

Oh my darling
My darling
My heart breaks as you take your long journey

Fond memories I'll keep of happy ways
That on earth we trod
And when I come we will walk hand in hand
As one in heaven in the family of god

Oh my darling
My darling
My heart breaks as you take your long journey
