Papa’s Home (Christmas lyrics)

Transcribed by: Scott Holcomb

Papa’s hittin’ the road again
Takes his show cross-country for hire.
As the snow keeps fallin’ down,
Frosty’s gettin’ bigger,
Mom’s holding sister by the fire
Turning pages of photographs.
Warming their memories of Christmas past by the fire.
To the North Pole where some young wishes go,
Santa’s bride mends his coat, keeps him warm.
And the elves are very handy,
They’re always crackin’ jokes,
But no one makes her laugh so easy,
Tellin’ stories and forgettin’ time.
Take a look at the rest in her eyes
And never grow tired.
Papa’s driving past the night
He’s working his way to make it home
The old man gonna be outside
When the morning come, when the morning comes
Papa’s hittin’ the roof again
Hanging stars with a hammer and wire.
As the snow keeps fallin’ down,
Frosty’s gettin’ fatter,
Mom’s holding sister by the fire
Turning pages of photographs.
Warming their memories and falling asleep by the fire.
Papa’s he driving past the night
He’s working his way to make it home
The old man gonna be a sight
When the morning come, when the morning comes
Papa’s coming home
Papa’s coming home
Papa coming home…

Garrie Vereen

10/26/1961 – 2/16/2011

Garrie Vereen Introductions
compiled by: Sam Holt

Posted on WidespreadPanic.com on 4/26/2011:

The Vereen and Widespread Panic Families again wish to thank the many, many friends who have shared their Love and support during the strange, sad time following Garrie’s passing two months ago.

Garrie’s departure has officially been ruled suicide by the Chief State medical officer. Finally. Presumed details can be found through other “official” news sources; I submit that Garrie found himself in an acute and foreign mental / emotional state of being, and after an extreme and irreversible series of moments, we lost a wonder-full guy.

Obviously, due to the very personal and incomplete nature of the investigation up to this point, it would have been inappropriate to elaborate beyond the original statements presented on the Widespread Panic website.

Fortunately, a long awaited ruling by the case officers, as well as uninformed speculation by a very few did not prevent the most important process to take place. Healing. It will be a long undertaking, but the result will be one that Garo’s Family, Friends, and Garrie himself deserve. Thank you for your continued best wishes for this happier outcome.

Garrie Vereen was a man generous with his laughter, Love of Family, and an enviable gift for revealing strangers as friends to be discovered. You will be sadly and sweetly missed, Garo.

Thanks to all who continue to share the Power of his Kinship.

Sincerely, John Bell

 

From WidespreadPanic.com following the tragic events of Feburary 16, 2011:

These have been sad, sad days since Garrie’s too soon and sudden passing.

Along with my usual internal mutterings, the phrase “salt of the Earth” is also coming through. Looking up the meaning in today’s words, it translates “Those of great worth and reliability.” That was Mr. Vereen. From the moment he pulled his truck up to our Band house on King ave. to help schlep gear in 1986, Garrie became the ambassador for Widespread Panic to the rest of the music world. He set the example for loyalty, candid honesty, working hard, and a readiness to laugh at any appropriate moment. We benefit from his un-wavering example because he was being all that, and I sincerely submit that he was and is the best of us.

Cub scout troop leader, Habitat for humanity contributor, swimming pool chicken fight champion – Garrie was also the go to guy outside of the rock and roll arena. One of many friends described him as the “neighborhood fix-it man,” helping put things (anything) back in working order when he knew he could be of help.

Back in the day, Garo built a stage for a party out in the country. We came around the next afternoon to pick up our gear, and Garrie was putting the finishing touches on a playhouse for his son, Colin – the stage had been transformed.

Bottom line – He Loved his Family, his work, making friends, having friends make friends; be it structures or relationships, Garrie really liked to build things.

Garrie has been such a good friend to so many; a lot of tears, stories, and healing are now being shared forever. Please remember though, for Garrie and Windy’s Family, especially the littlest ones, re-entry into a “normal,” happy life is hard to imagine right now. As smart as these kids are (and they’re freaky smart), all they can be asked to fathom is that their Dad’s not coming back from this “permanent road trip” (that was nine year old Everett Vereen’s analogy).

Thanks to all who continue to offer the Vereen family their support while respecting the private and delicate nature of these moments and days to come.

We all miss you, Sir.
