The Passage to on High

We’re in a heavenly bluegrass Band We made the passage to another land We sing and play because we must If it ain’t fun – it ain’t us Singing lonesome bluegrass songs Sometimes the angels sing along We don’t cry, moan or make a fuss If it ain’t fun – it ain’t us The folks below want a Bluegrass thrill Just play a recording by Banjo Bill When you get right down to the crust If it ain’t fun – it ain’t us Fiddlin’ Sam was someone to know Oh how he could saw that bow He’s had to fiddle or he’d bust If it ain’t fun – it ain’t us Gary, Jimmy and Charlie grin Played bass, guitar and mandolin Entertaining you was their “must” If it ain’t fun – it ain’t us We finished playing our last show It’s over for us, we had to go We’ll see you up here we hope and trust If it ain’t fun – it ain’t us
The Late Great, King of Bluegrass, Jimmy Martin
