He Died Alone

My old man died last winter just before the thaw.
Hed called us home to say goodbye, though we didnt know it then.
So proud he was to see us, then he sent us on our way,
Saying "Where would I be without you?"
My old man, he died alone.
Just the way hed lived the last couple of years.
You never knew his name, but the world is not the same
Since my old man died alone.
I never knew how much Id miss him, so it catches me off guard.
We werent the kind to talk too much,
But wed thought wed said it all.
They say hindsights twenty-twenty,
Now I know theres one more thing to say.
Dad, where would I be without you?
(Repeat last line of refrain)
