Forty two and my granddad was drafted by the army
They send him off to fight over in Germany
Left my grandma at home
With a brand new baby boy

And my mom was born
The day they bomb Hiroshima
Not long after that
My granddad got to meet her

Got a job and commuted from Alabama to Kentucky
But still he would have told you he was lucky
Just to watch his pretty bride
Pushing baby's down the street

And the way that the cars
Are backed up behind her
The way that the traffic cop
Lined up behind her

Now granddads lost his mind
'Cause he'd rather not remember anymore
And he refuses to stop driving
So grandma's locked his keys next door

And he spend his days
Just a looking around, looking around
But he's forgotten what he's looking for
He's forgotten what he's looking for
