We’re Gonna Miss You

Thanks to Brad Paisley's song "I'm Gonna Miss Her"

Words by Terry Cook & Jody Barry
Sung by Jody Barry and Tony Hill 7/23/2019

Well I love her

But I love to fish

I spend all day out on this lake

And Hell is all I catch

Today she met me at the door

Said I would have to choose

If I hit that fishin’ hole today

She’d be packin’ all her things

And she’d be gone by noon

Well, I’m gonna miss her!

When I get home

But right now I’m on this lake shore

And I’m sittin’ in the sun

I’m sure it’ll hit me

When I walk through that door tonight

Yeah, I’m gonna miss her

Oh lookie there, I’ve got a bite

Now there’s a chance that if I hurry

I could beg her to stay

But that water’s right

And the weather’s perfect

No tellin’ what I might catch today

So I’m gonna miss her

When I get home

But right now I’m on this lake shore

And I’m sittin in the sun

I’m sure it’ll hit me

When I walk through that door tonight

Yeah, I’m gonna miss her

Oh, lookie there, another bite

Yeah, I’m gonna miss her

Oh, lookie there, I’ve got a bite

Well we love you

But we love it here too.

We spend Tuesdays in this courthouse

And we’ll suffer without you...

Last month you gave us future plans

Said we would have to choose

Another park director this year.

You’d be packin’ all your office gear,

And you’d be gone Ju-ly

Well, we’re gonna miss you!

Next week’s too soon

But right now it’s budget planning

And more bond program trimming

I’m sure it’ll hit us,

Long after we’ve said our goodbyes.

Yeah, we’re gonna miss you,

No broad smiles, no sparklin’ eyes.

  • Break -

You’ve been called by the big guy upstairs

We can’t beg you to stay.

You’re heart’s so right

'Cause you’ve seen the light,

But it’s still hard to say...

Oh, we’re gonna miss you.

Next week’s too soon

Our lives are here, inside Wilco

Where we struggle to write this tune,

We’re sure it’ll hit us

That you’re just so tough to replace.

Yeah, we’re gonna miss you

Oh, lookie here, some resumes.

Yeah, we’re gonna miss you

Oh, lookie here, more resumes.

Poetic Interlude by Commissioner Cook

Plain pressed jeans, rattler chaps.

Felt hat never shows sweat.

Office without ceiling,

Racing into the sunset.

A man who creates trails

       Or, at least a vision.

Never met a stranger.

Perfect for the new mission.

Your loyal crew all sigh,

Hopes you will surely stay.

Clock’s ticking, still coming,

31st, your final day.

Yeah, we’re gonna miss you.

Always grinning ear to ear.

Sharing your hopefulness,

We hold your friendship dear.
