One More Game

from Stone by Stone by Tret Fure

about

My father passed on at 99 but not until he saw his beloved Milwaukee Brewers play 7 games against the Dodgers in the 2018 play-offs.

lyrics

Just one more game before I go
Just one more chance to see a home run
From my favorite team
My favorite game
Before I board the one way train
Across that great divide.

I know I’m walking the thinnest line
The doctors told me I had little time
At 99, it’s fine to be on my way
But all I ask for is one more game

I can’t wait to hear the play by play
As I awaken grateful every day
And I remember every player’s name
And all I ask right now is one more game

CHORUS

Score by score and pitch by pitch
A right field catch from a home run hit
The crack of the bat and the ball in play
How I loved that one more game

I got my father’s cap, his cribbage board
A favorite memory of a great low score
His joy in the game and his competitive streak
And a love that runs so deep

So just one more game before he goes
Just one more chance to see a home run
From his favorite team
His favorite game
Before he boards the one way train
Across that great divide.
