I once had a retarded daughter
She died, but I don't remember when
She took my name upon her headstone
Oh, I was a doctor then

Won't you hold my estate sale early, boys
Won't you sell off every seed I have sewn
I think I'll be losin' my mind shortly, boys
I can't remember a single thing I've owned

So here we go, one by one, my whole family, here we go
All my sons, all my grandsons to date
We parade into the sunset, boys
Ol' Jimmy's leading the way

Be careful of those who go before you
They have disease that you cannot escape
When the world is fast and the mind is slow
Let it go, let it go, let it go with grace

You see, my mother, she lay on her death bed
And she could not remember my name
But you will not hold it against her
If I should do the same

So here we go, one by one, my whole family, here we go
All my sons, all my grandsons to date
We parade into the sunset, boys
Ol' Jimmy's leading the way

So here we go, one by one, my whole family, here we go
All my sons, all my grandsons to date
We parade into the sunset, boys
For Dr. James L. Caffee
