I’m sorry friends that I can’t be with you to celebrate today

If you’re all gathered round and reading this, I’ve probably passed away

but if I were there I’d tell you not to shed a tear or frown

I’d tell you just to simply say, another Biker has gone down.

If I were there I’d tell you that I had a wonderful life,

That I loved my kids and family and especially my wife.

I loved all my drinking buddies and all my life-long friends

I’d raise a toast to all of you, “May your party never end.”

If I were there I’d tell you how I loved the the small blue highways

How I loved the curving mountain roads, loved to ride the back-road byways.

And how I loved it “in the wind”, loved it when that engine rumbled,

and the biker friends who rode with me and would help me when I stumbled.

You are amongst my dearest friends, brothers and sisters of the road,

We’ve traveled many miles together, shared many heavy loads.

If I could be there, we’d laugh and share the memories from our past,

and this gathering would be just one more tale, another story, not our last.

But today I can’t be with you, except in your hearts and memory stores

So you’ll have to laugh, lift a glass to me, then let your engines roar.

Please smile and do not shed a tear, wipe away that silly frown.

I’m off upon that final ride, another Biker who has gone down.
