Really gonna miss you
Its really gonna be different without you
Time came when you had to go
For the rest of my life
Gonna be thinking about you (yes I am)
I'll miss you my buddy
I'll miss you my friend
I promise my love for you will never end
In your finest hour I was there with you
And without you things wont be the same
But there's a higher power that we answer to
And you heard him calling your name
Really gonna miss you
Everything about you your smiling face
I know you want us all to be strong
Really gonna miss you
I know your going to that magic place
Singing you a brand new song
I'll miss you my buddy
I'll miss you my friend
I promise my love for you will never end
Really Gonna Miss Youuuuuuuuuu

    I have read the lyrics and would sing this song to myself over and over since it said exactly what I felt during the time that a close love one passed away. Smokey, you nailed it on this song, just like so many love songs you wrote that had depth and meaning to the listener. Jwilson.

    Yes! Smokey, hit it just right. At the time he wrote this song, it was in memory of his friend melvin. A very moving song that fits everyones' heart, who has loss that very special someone they love.

    I recently lost my gramma at 64 yrs she used to line up all her grandchildren there are 15 of us to sing at once her fav songs this is one she really encouraged us to sing and i never thought i could do it she sang this to us and i remember gathering in her living room to practice it although we chickened out and never sang it, it became a great deal when she passed away because it was the very song she kept pushing ius to learn. So at her funeral a couple of us that could remember the lyrics sang it as they put her int he ground god rest her soul and all i can do is cry remembering that moment my gramma was really in love with this song.
