Lyrics:

6 Feet higher

Little baby Bonnie he wears the smile you used to throw
and his mother Lilly dances like you did some years before
she has got your blue eyes with that sparkling northern light night glow
Bonnie in her arms she soars over the ground and sweeps the floor
a song on her lips that you taught her to sing and perform
when the weather changes and ice cold wind turns into storm

You will always have walls for the wind
a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire,
laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,
and all your heart might desire

Lilly's brother looks exactly like you did when you were young
You named him John, when you held him in hand the day he was born
showed him how to do and think and keep good things on the run
now he knows what to do when life becomes a struggle, a thorn
a song on his lips that you taught him to sing and perform
when the weather changes and ice cold wind turns into storm

You will always have walls for the wind

Your body six feet lower than it used to be
your soul is flying higher, set to be free
another aye to you my friend
'cause this is not the end

Bonnie will raise the same way you did and will have sheltered life
'cause Lilly will teach him all of what you gave her and showed her
Johnny does the same with not yet born kids once he found a wife
and will dance with his whole family, his sons and his daughters
a song on their lips that you taught them to sing and perform
when the weather changes and ice cold wind turns into storm

You will always have walls for the wind ...
