Story Behind the Song

Advice my momma gave me on the day I left home


The Day I said Goodbye (Cast Thy Bread Upon The Waters)
Words and Music By Andy Budd

Just eighteen and ready, to set out on my own
I packed up my old Chevy truck with everything I owned
Told my mom - I was leavin'....... never to return
She said, before you go son, let me share some things I've learned

She said, to whom much is given, much shall be asked
With the gifts that good lord has given you, boy, you've got a mighty task
The whole wide world awaits you, I hope you?ve got the nerve
And , good or bad, eventually, we all get what we deserve, She Said..

Reach for the stars in all you do and you?ll succeed
There?s those who have and those who don?t, it?s not too hard to see
There?s givers and there?s takers son, which one will you beeeeee
Cast thy bread upon the waters, and it shall come back to thee

She said, you'll have to make deposits before you can withdraw
From the bank of human kind-ness, that?s a?. universal law
What goes around comes around?. that?s a, ? fundamental truth
Just take a look around you son if you need more proof

Stop and smell the roses, every now and then
Try to lead a life of your fellow man
Share your gifts from God with those you meet along your way
It can't come back to you............. if you won't give it away

Chorus / Instrumental / Chorus

So, go on now, get outta here, get on with your new life
Remember what your momma taught you and you'll turn out all right.
Carry these lessons in your heart until the day you die
And that?s what my momma taught me on the day.. I said goodbye
