about

A tribute to a genuinely lovely man who died some years ago having frequented the boozer I worked in for as long as anyone could remember.

lyrics

Old Ray, well he was one in a million
He lived for 97 years in this town
Lost what family he had
But we all knew him as 'Dad'
And today we lay old Ray in the ground

I could sit and talk to Ray here for hours
Saying nothing much of anything profound
Just good company all night
On the barstool to my right
Today we lay old Ray in the ground

Let the bells ring out from St. Mary's
And echo all around the town
Get the message through
To everyone he knew
Today we lay old Ray in the ground

He'd always let you beat him at Poker
He'd fold a winning hand and buy a round
He were just the sort of bloke
Who'd rather hear than crack a joke
And today we lay old Ray in the ground

Let the bells ring out from St. Mary's
And echo all around the town
Get the message through
To everyone he knew
Today we lay old Ray in the ground
