Lyrics

He was a soldier at age 17
A young adventurous man
Raised out in the heartland
Went to fight for God and man
A prisoner in Korea
He often wondered if he'd die
When I asked him how he made it
My father looked me in the eye

The clear blue sky
Welcomed me each morning
The clear blue sky
Welcomed me each day
He words filled me with wonder
I felt that I would cry
And now I know why
I love the blue sky

My grandfather had worked the land
Plowed fields and made them grow
Plant the seed for the cattle feed
And wheat fields row upon row
He taught me 'bout the simple things
Fresh air and apple pie
When I asked him for his rule of life
He smiled and told me why

The clear blue sky
Welcomed me each morning
The clear blue sky
Welcomed me each day
He words filled me with wonder
I felt that I would cry
And now I know why
I love the blue sky

Whenever I am lonely
And whenever I am blue
Whenever things have got me down
So I can't move my shoes
I think about my father's voice and my granddad's smiling eye
So much in life is O so free if Don't let it pass you by
