I have walked along the path
of life and now is time to rest,
As I walked with head held high
I tried to do my best,
and as I walk along life’s path
I learned of many things.
The ways of men of valor
and the ways of fools and kings,
What I learned I held within
and now pass onto you.
Keep family first,
Your head high and to yourself be true.
Keep on truckin’ Humphrey.
