Lyrics

I was born to a dreamer, a simple compassionate man
Who gave me the love that I needed, taught me to love this land
He never cared about money, he was as rich as a king
The birds and the trees and his garden, and I remember how he loved to sing

Farewell to the days of my childhood
Farewell to the lost lullabies
To the innocence, beauty and wonder
Farewell to my father’s blue eyes

I found my way to the city, I had a dream of my own
And each week he’d write me a letter, and I’d call him if I felt alone
As I’ve grown older I cherish the time we had to spend
Fishing and laughing together, oh I wish I could go there again

Farewell to the days of my childhood
Farewell to the lost lullabies
To the innocence, beauty and wonder
Farewell to my father’s blue eyes

As I wind through these mountains
You can never go home so they say
I leave my heart in these mountains
They buried my father today

Farewell to the days of my childhood
Farewell to the lost lullabies
To the innocence, beauty and wonder
Farewell to my father’s blue eyes

To the wisdom, the love and the kindness
I saw in my father’s blue eyes
