Oh Ronnie, I'm so sorry
It never turned out the way that you wanted
I'll never forget you
And I never met you
There's gotta be some kind of way that we could
Tell you we miss you

Where did you go? You stepped out the front door and you never came home
Tell me why it always seems to me that
Only the good die young

And I know that you're lookin' down on me
Laughing at the mistakes I've made along the way
And I know that we lost you back in like '67
I hope that you got all the letters that I
Sent you in heaven

Oh Ronnie, you were my big brother
And when you left us, the pain it was unlike any other
I tried to live my life and just deal with the pain
Now three generations of family,
Well, they're calling your name
