There can be only one

A tribute to John Sherman



There can be only one

I’ve been around a long, long time
So many folk I’ve Known
I’ve shared a beer and a social chat
And as the years have flown
I’ve had my share of legends
Put many folk on high
And yet one guy I will remember
Until the day I die

I’d have to say that John Sherman
Has impressed me most of all
He gives himself to everyone
Though the man he be no fool
He’s humble, kind and cares a lot
For all folk on this earth
There can be only one man
For me that has his worth

John Sherman changed my life around
And saved me from myself
Through him I gained my sanity
He gave to me true wealth
I raise my glass for this great man
He’s the grandest that can be
To me there’s only one hero
John Sherman, he’s for me.
