Father, we've something to tell you, a story of our time
A tragic but inspiring tale of manhood in its prime
You know you had a dozen sons, well, now that's not quite true
But feel no sorrow, do not grieve, he would not want you to

There's one more angel in Heaven
There's one more star in the sky
Joseph, we'll never forget you
It's tough but we're gonna get by

There's one less place at our table
There's one more tear in my eye
But Joseph, the things that you stood for
Like truth and light never die

When I think of his last great battle
A lump comes to my throat
It takes a man who knows no fear
To wrastle with a goat

His blood-stained coat is tribute to
His final sacrifice
His body may be past its peak
But his soul's in paradise

So long, little Joe
How do you [Incomprehensible]
[Incomprehensible]

There's one less place at our table
There's one more tear in my eye
But Joseph, the things that you stood for
Like truth and light never die

Carve his name with pride and courage
Let no tear be shed
If he had not laid down his life
We all would now be dead
