Glory Days

Written by: Jon Arno

I drove through town the other day
I’ve been away so long
I closed my eyes and slipped away
emotions were so strong

The Chattahoochee glory days
still live within my mind
Amazing people shared their lives
to me they were so kind

I thank the leaders in that town
they helped us at the fork
Doc Richardson and Lafayette
Lamar and Sheriff York

The spirits of our childhood friends
still gather at the lake
Although we left so long ago
our ties they never break

We danced and sang to Moody Blues
Ole Peat Moss led the way
Gene Tipton played a mean guitar
those were the good ole days

I thought of others that we knew
who died before their time
Dear friends and neighbors to us all
some left us in their prime

My mind replayed a thousand joys
from days so long ago
I drove out to the lake once more
and then I had to go

I watched the city disappear
as we all drove away
I wiped away a tear or two
I’ll come another day
