We'll miss you Andy, in Mayberry and all our favorite Carolina haunts
We know you lived quite a few days, but we're still sad you rushed away

We loved all the new places you took us, and the places we'd been
a hundred times before. You made us feel at home, just like lemonade.

So go ahead and rest your bones, we'll find shade and skippin' stones,

We'll take down our fishin' poles and whistle to The Fishin' Hole,
I can't think of a better way to pass the time o' day.

In honor of Andy Griffith, inspired by the Andy Griffith Show Theme Song

Andy and Mayberry were a childhood favorite. His homespun honesty and simple truths made me see how authentic life can sometimes be.

It's funny, while I watched The Griffith show as a child, it was moving to NC that really knit me to Andy's story.
