Goodbye Captain Kicky

from The Kinfolk Chronicles by Tommy Wiggins



While waiting for the arrival Owen Thomas Lowrey Walker, aka “Captain Kicky” - “Some kind of world that you’re getting into, you don’t even know. Hundred degrees in the shade today, hot wind blowin’ so. Your mama, she’s been workin’ hard, four days down the line. Pushing comes to shoving, it’s just about your time.”


Goodbye Captain Kicky

Some kind of world that you’re getting into
you don’t even know
hundred degrees in the shade today
hot wind blowin’ so
your mama, she’s been workin’ hard
four days down the line
pushin’ comes to shoving
it’s just about your time

gentle arms to hold you
hearts so full of love
birthin’ time is coming
pushing comes to shove
full of love

We’ve been here to witness
and we are here to tell
that your daddy’s been there
for your mama right from the bell
she is blessed like you will be blessed
by his gentle soul
fighting all the dragons at your door
Owen Thomas Lowrey Walker
you’ve had quite the ride
no more lookin’ at the world from the inside
So Goodbye, Captain Kicky
Hello to this world
Sarah, we’re so proud of you
Sarah, we’re so happy for you
