Shed a Tear and Drink Some Beer

Shed a Tear and Drink Some Beer

By Garland Davis

Well, we were told today

We didn’t know what to say

When they told us that you crossed the bar

We took a walk to clear the head

This old pier is where the walk led

Hard to believe you’re gone

No reason for us to go home

So we’re gonna just sit here

On this broken down old pier

We will watch the ships and sunset disappear

Shed a tear and drink some beer

Seems the good one’s always go ahead

Too soon it is, we had more to say

And now it won’t be said

Sometimes the maker’s plan is hard to understand

Now, today it just don’t make sense

No it just don’t make any sense

So fair winds my friend till we meet again

At the bar on the Green, you’ll wait there

And we’ll remember all that was ours to share

So those left will gather in Branson here

We will watch the sunset disappear

Shed a tear and drink some beer

    How true it is as we grow older and our friends and shipmates leave to early to join the staff of the Supreme Commander. I always remember them and times we had together doing what sailors do to pass the time. I`m a old West Pac sailor and will try my best if my health hangs in there to make it to Branson next year.
