The Perfect Prize

Catching up on errands and popping in on friends,
This is how we spent our first day in
Our Tennessee mountain getaway in the forest.
These are some of the things we like best.

Today we'll be baking cookies and cakes,
And generally doing whatever it takes
To get ready for Charlie's memorial service,
Something that we really don't want to miss.

There'll be antique cars and lots of folks
Telling Charlie's stories and jokes.
Bluegrass pickin' will be a part,
All things close to Charlie's heart.

We'll sing and dance and honor him,
A man who so many called their friend.
Now that he's won the greatest prize,
We'll party him into paradise.
