GRADUATION DAY

(G. Thomas)  2015

My mother was a housewife
And my daddy was a gambler
Most of his life
And my brothers got married
Both were union men one in Michigan  
And the other lives in Ohio

It was 1974
I was 18 
And I couldn't stay put 
Not even one second more

There was another place
Staring me in the face
I really couldn't wait
I had to get away
On graduation day 
Graduation day
I had to get away

And in a moment 
Life changes
And faces fade 
Into different shapes
And colors I've never seen before
And I like it
I don't mind it
I could feel the hand of fate that night
Pushing me on  
To the other side

There was another place
Staring me in the face
I really couldn't wait
For gradutaion day
I had to get away
Nothin' left to say
I had to get away
On graduation day
I had to get away
On graduation day
Graduation day
