Michael Jones - Father Earl

Just a holy man trying just the best he can
He was more than kind, he was a friend of mine
Sacrificed his health, even sacrificed his wealth
Every penny spent. He paid for such a long time
So many times he helped me through
Your life's the passed but your memory's true

So many times, I think of you
But it's all over now
The good deeds that he done
Every young boy was his son
A Father to us all, so long as I recall
If there's a paradise
For every good man when he dies
There's one for Father Earle
Where he can looke out for us all
So many times, he helped me through
Your life's the passed but your memory's true
So many times, I think of you
But it's oh so hard for me to understand
It's just too much to demande
Why someone good should leave us all
This way, it's over now
