The doghouse sits silent
The pitcher's mound too
Linus cries in his blanket
The whole world cries too

The round-headed kid
Whose life was disdain
Will never feed Snoopy
Or play baseball again

I watched him stay humble
at Halloween time
When rocks filled his bag
His heartache was mine

Christmas was Peanuts
and that sad little tree
Linus made us realize
What Christmas should be

Pigpen's life
was a dust-filled swirl
Charlie Brown's heart
was a red-haired girl

The World War I ace
shot the Red Baron down
then snuggled with Woodstock
down on the ground

They attached to our souls
they were part of our heart
In the morning over coffee
on the TV in the dark

So our world is a much
lonelier place tonight
A legend has passed
into the light

And somewhere a beagle howls
a most pitiful sound
He's lost his best friend
You were a good man, Charlie Brown.

We lost a good strip.....

Many thanks to snowy for passing this great tribute along to me.
