"If I Wore a Hat (For Jeff Hill)"

If I Wore a Hat (For Jeff Hill)
By Gregg Inhofer

They say when life gives you lemons, just make lemonade.
But that's so easy for them to say, when they're all sittin' in the shade.
Sippin' their long, tall, cool ones and never havin' any fun.
Losin' what connection they may have had with anyone.

But you always knew, how to live life in style.
And you always knew, how to make a sad man smile.
And you understood, how to make each day brand new.
So if I wore a hat, I'd take it off to you.

Sometimes things can happen, and I almost lose my mind.
I try to get ahead and end up fifty steps behind.
But you had a calmness and a steady even keel,
That told everyone who knew you that you really were for real.

I don't believe I'll ever know just what it's all about.
But just the same I think I'd like a little clue.
It's never easy when you have to learn to live without.
And now we have to live without you.

But as the story continues, I just don't understand,
How life can fill the world with evil people and strike down a good man.
But in my humble opinion, I think he's looking down from above.
Seeing all the faces and connecting them with love.
