The Best Of Times : Remembering Chuck Berry : Written In Rhyming Fashion
Gone But Not Forgotten
Chuck Berry went to rockabilly heaven at the ripe old age of ninety
There to greet him will be the earthly greats and our heavenly Father ' The Almighty '
Chuck Berry was a jammin' guitar player, a true rock n roll pioneer who duck- walked across the stage and right into my teenage soul
Just like Elvis, he was one-of-a-kind with his knee squatting rock n roll
I'm sure Elvis will be there to welcome him, singing my favorite song, Kentucky Rain
My tears flowed the day Elvis died, never to hear his sweet voice again
I can envision Michael J. climbing down from a twinkling swinging star
Hugging Chuck, moon-walking, telling him how he learned to dance, watching him from afar
Marvin Gaye will greet him. He knew he was coming cos' He Heard It Through The Grapevine
Then Jimi Hendrix will be jammin', Will You Be Mine?
Janis Joplin will be singing, Me And Bobby Mcgee
Otis Redding is heard in the background singing, Bring It On Home To Me
John Denver's, Rocky Mountain High
Literally lit up the sky
Whitney will come a runnin' Singing, I will Always Love You
Soon the country greats will join in too
George Jones, Merle Haggart, Johnny Cash just to name a few
A heavenly reunion, clouds dancing to music, filling the heavens with music so beautifully
I sure do miss 'em all
But just knowing they're all together, jammin' and having a get-together ball
Makes losing them so much easier, and knowing they've joined the heavenly chorus
Makes my final Carriage ride much happier and a reason to smile and rejoice.
