Track Name: A Great Grand-dad
The position, of authority
The armchair in front, of the tv
The voice of command, not even dad can defy
Supreme power, in a ten years old eye

I'll never forget, when I was just a boy
That time I won at chess, and that feeling of joy
You were the best, how I wanted to be
And you will live on, through your family

The ever present races, on a Sunday afternoon
Tried to distract your attention, from tales old and new
A secret in a handshake, a fiver in my palm
A wink and a caution, “don't tell your mam”.

So here we are together, on your anniversary
We keep the past alive, by telling our stories
My sisters and I, and our memories
You will live on, through your family

And you will live on, through your family
Track Name: Reeled In
Verse
G. E. C-D. G

Oh. The first time I saw her. With her hair tied back
And those green eyes, oh how they captured mine
But no I couldn't have her. She was off my track
Though I fell for her, hook sinker and line

Chorus
G C D
Oh she's my girl now, but she wasn't then x2


Of course we'd see each other. Every once in a while
But for a reason or another, the time was never right
We could get ice-cream, flirt like we were sixteen
I saw the bait, but didn't go for the bite

Chorus

JUST BASS
I finally found the courage. To reel her in
With the offer of a drink on a quiet Friday
We shared a kiss, a moment of bliss
Turns out she was reeling me in the entire way

Chorus x2
