From the recording Eighty Trips Around the Sun

Scott was reflecting on his father's upcoming 80th birthday when he wrote this song in 2007.  It's one of my favorites. 
 
 

Lyrics

The family was gathered ‘round his bedside The preacher and his friends were standing by He was in the only house he’d ever lived in They all knew their old friend was gonna die   He raised his head and spoke to those who loved him Don’t cry for me, I know my race is run I’ve done something none of you have done yet I’ve made…eighty trips around the sun!   I’ve seen every place that’s worth seeing I’ve laughed and cried with each and everyone And I’ve done something none of you have done yet I’ve made…eighty trips around the sun!   He said, “Don’t waste a day, there ain’t too many, Leave the world a better place when you’re done And I’ve done something none of you have done yet I’ve made…eighty trips around the sun! Yeah I’ve done something done of you have done yet I’ve made…eighty trips around the sun!
