lyrics

If I had a million dollars,
It couldn't buy back the health of my father
Will All the memories of him?
Fly off into oblivion?
I can still see his worn out boots treading in the dirt in the morning
I can still see us running the rows of the garden potatoes in our hands
I can still see the light coming down from the stars covering the hay field
I can still the escarpment rising with the corn growing under it
If I had a million dollars,
It couldn't buy back the health of my father
Will All the memories of him?
Come back to me again?
I can still hear his radio crackling playing on the public station
I can still hear his chickens clucking in their coop waiting for him
I can still hear his keyboard clicking glowing in the dark of the evening
I can hear the creole rhythms beating in my heart when I was a kid
If I had a million dollars
I would spend another day with my father
A day in which we could laugh and remember
The good life that we shared together
