Here's a photograph of you in Woody Hermann?s band
One of you at a memorial with all of Hoagy?s clan

You were beautiful upon the keys
Beautiful to me
You took a photograph of us, your ladies liberty
Grandmother read the sonnet of Emma Lazarus

You were beautiful upon the keys
Beautiful to me
You were a father to this lonely child though we are not related
You were a soldier for your country in two of our wars

You were beautiful upon the keys
Beautiful to me
