When The Old People Go

Uncle was a station man,
He drove in a strange new land,
I'll never forget his tales of the track.

I can still see him there,
Rocking in his chair,
His voice is strong as his memory takes him back.

Who will remember the stories of the Old Country?
Who will pass along the lessons that they show?
When the ones who've loved us so,
Have gone where we can't go,
Who will remember the stories,
When the old people go?

I'll never forget the day,
When Auntie passed away,
I heard the news but I couldn't shed a tear.
I was in a strange country,
And her death wasn't real to me,
It feels as though she's still beside me here.

Who will remember the stories of the Old Country?
Who will pass along the lessons that they show?
When the ones who've loved us so,
Have gone where we can't go,
Who will remember the stories,
When the old people go?

This world is changing fast,
As we search for something to last,
Mighty challenges faces us now.
We need the old folks' help to show us how.

Who will remember the stories of the Old Country?
Who will pass along the lessons that they show?
When the ones who've loved us so,
Have gone where we can't go,
Who will remember the stories,
When the old people go?
It's up to us to keep dreaming,
When the old people go.
