    Smoke Rings And Destiny

    My grandpappy
    blew HUGE ....O O O O O....
    Smoke rings
    from his Raliegh Cigarettes,
    so heavenly we'd chase them down
    almost every chance we'd get,

    Those spinning wheels of bluish white
    that we his grandkids stuck,
    our fingers through with hand waves
    waiting joyous for each puff.....

    across that tiny living room
    in the projects where we knew,
    that Grandpap always brought three packs
    holding something fun to do,

    He collected Raleigh coupons
    on the backs of every pack,
    saving them to get valuable gifts
    he was always keeping track...

    Chorus-

    but you can't take nothing with you,
    that's the way it has to be,
    all that we've ever done on earth becomes
    Smoke rings and destiny...smoke rings and destiny.....

    He got coolers, tools and sports stuff.
    and some great paintings he hung,
    a toaster and a waffle iron,
    and Cancer in his lungs..

    and although it didn't kill him
    it sure helped contribute much,
    to his failing heart and it's ruptured parts
    that stole his loving touch......

    Chorus-

    but you can't take nothing with you,
    that's the way it has to be,
    all that we've ever done on earth becomes
    Smoke rings and destiny...smoke rings and destiny.....

    I can picture him in heaven now
    gazing at that huge white ring,
    his halo perched over his head
    near his set of angel wings....

    probably wishing for a Raleigh
    back on earth with grandkids near,
    to chase away his smoke rings
    far into his golden years.
    far into his golden years......

    Chorus-

    but you can't take nothing with you,
    that's the way it has to be,
    all that we've ever done on earth becomes
    Smoke rings and destiny...smoke rings and destiny.....
