Gone Fishing

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 heaven’s shores.


The view is grand and the fishing’s great,

but I yearn for you as I wait,

I’ll save a spot on the river’s bend,

for those I call family and friend.


But for now, sail out to sea,

and make a cast in memory,

to all the good times from the past,

so the memories will ever last.


And if the fish no longer bite,

or seem no longer worth the fight,

because it's me that you are missin’

don’t worry- be glad-

I’ve only gone fishin’
