Lyrics

Soil covered hands, sweat on his brow
workin' the land, 'til the sun goes down
fightin' for daylight, ...grandfather

He's got the war on his memory,
Like the coat on his back,
Like steel stood in the field,
Bullets fly, cannons crack
All for his country, ...grandfather

Western sky - close your eyes
Western breeze blow...
across the plains like a midnight lullaby

It seems like yesterday
I daydream out loud
But the seasons changed
And the rain is on the ground
Rest your eyes, ...grandfather

Starin' up at your picture
Knowin' all that you have done
They can take your mind and soul
But your legend will live on
In your footsteps, ...grandfather

Western sky - close your eyes
Western breeze blow...
across the plains like a midnight lullaby

Western sky - close your eyes
Western breeze stand still......
