Save Me A Seat In Heaven

“Save Me A Seat In Heaven” – Words and Music Terry and Jenny Bennetts 2006

CH
Old man time, has caught up with you my friend
Although you’d lived a good life, we both knew someday she would end
But you’ll always be with me, good memories will stay
Save me a seat in heaven old mate, for we’ll meet again some day

V1
I see a young fella sitting by the fire, swapping stories with his mates
I can still hear him whistle some old tune, as another new morning breaks
But his campfire days have been long gone, with the stories that were told
And that stockman now is just a memory, ‘long with those drovin’ days of old

CH
For old man time, has caught up with you my friend
Although you’d lived a good life, we both knew someday she would end
But you’ll always be with me, good memories will stay
Save me a seat in heaven old mate, for we’ll meet again some day

Inst (Chorus)

V2
I can still see him holding up the bar, as we remember days long past
His face well weathered by wind and sun and a body that’s failing fast
But his eyes would shine as he spins a yarn, that part of him will remain
For although he’s gone, the stories will live on, we’ll not see the likes of him again

CH
And old man time, has caught up with you my friend
Although you’d lived a good life, we both knew someday she would end
But you’ll always be with me, good memories will stay
So save me a seat in heaven old mate, for we’ll meet again some day

You’ll always be with me, the memories will stay
Save me a seat in heaven old mate, for we’ll meet again – some day
