and music by Tony Provencher - 1986
Vocal, Harmonica, and Guitar - Tony Provencher
|This old Goblet's weathered many years
And held the wine of many smiles and tears.
The years haven't all been kind,
But I don't really mind -
It's contained a lifetime of good cheer.
See the surface - it's all cracked and marred;
The stem repaired; the lip and bowl are scarred
From much neglect and abuse,
And many years of misuse,
But it retains a beauty beyond par.
This old chalice is a gift for you.
This old vessel holds a love so true.
It's fragile, and it's rare,
So fondle it with care.
This old heart is filled with love for you
