Tinkering with old gadgets,
Riding on that old tractor,
You lived to be outside,
Under that big blue sky,
Then one day you fell,
And bumped your head,
You were still alive,
But not all there,

At that nursing home,
Where you couldn't see,
That big blue sky,
Now you're in that sky,
You loved to see.
