God’s Gift (live iPhone recording)
Georgia takes a second look at the man who once was the boy she and her friends taunted in childhood.
 
There was a young gentleman
He wore white flannel pants
My friend and I would throw rocks
In the mud and he’d get splashed
 
He was God’s gift
I still miss him every day
 
Then came the war, World War II
We did a lot of growing up
I heard someone call my name
There he stood, in uniform
 
He was God’s gift
I still miss him every day
 
He asked me to marry him
When I said no, he asked again
The third time I said yes
Maybe he won’t ask again
 
He was God’s gift
I still miss him every day
 
We raised two daughters
42 years of love
He was ill over 2 years
And then he passed away
 
He was God’s gift
I still miss him every day
