lyrics

[Narrator: David, 1950]

We chased that airplane on our bicycles
Through the forest in our leather jackets
And when it landed we took the runway

We pedaled 'til our wheels vibrated
And at the moment my bike almost left the ground
The air marshall caught us

When he asked our father's name
—our eyes flashed terror
We waited on a bench until the pilot saw us
And asked, "do you kids wanna fly for real?”

As we taxied I saw Joe’s Chrysler coming
As we lifted off I saw his solemn gaze
Spread into a grin across his face

Brother, I just want to say that I'm glad
I'll always know you
That no matter where they take us
Or what they put us through
I'll always know you
