The Path

If you walk along the path
The path he’d walk in fall
It leads you through the golden leaves
Up to the Willow Hall
Where men in chairs
Are playin’ cards
“Someone get the phone”
Sammy says “Hey Eddie
Its Rose, she wants you home”

Along the path its dark now
A chill with every step
Eddie stops to take a drink
And smoke a cigarette
Her voice appears inside his head
Whiskey warms his bones
Whispering “Hey Eddie
Its Rose she wants you home”

Only love will last forever
The rest all fades away
Love’s the path we all must follow
Until our fateful day

If you walk along the path
The path that brought him home
You will find a garden
With red and pink begonias
Planted there in memory
Prayers of love be sown
Whispering “Hey Eddie
Its Rose she wants you home”
