I still recall those happy times,
it seems like yesterday,
We would sit close by his side
and listen to him play:
Lukey's Boat, I'se The B'y,
and that old Galway Bay,
Accordion man, I can still hear you play.

Every Sunday afternoon
he'd play those gospel songs,
We would sit close by his side
and we would sing along;
From Monday to Saturday
he'd play those jigs and reels,
Accordion man, how good you made us feel.

I wish I had the power now
to change the course of time,
I'd live again those happy days
with that friend of mine;
Just to hear him play one more
of those old-time melodies,
Accordion man, play again for me.
