Book of John Lyrics

We were sittin' round the supper table
And the buzz of the frigid air
Was the only sound til Mama laid down
A book she found upstairs
It was covered in dust in the back of the closet
Goodwill box
We almost tossed it out
We could've lost...

    The song is about a child's father who passed away. The child and their mother ( perhaps other family members too) found basically a scrapbook of pictures and they all reminisced about "John." Lastly at the end of the song, it says that the child will show and tell their own children about their grandfather that they never had the chance to meet.

    It is truly a neat song from a point of view of an adult child.
