Arthur Ashe was a hero of mine; first for his serve, then for his grace. The lyrics to this song were used at the raising of his statue on Monument Avenue in Richmond, VA.



Well I remember as a kid, all the things I ever did
to play the game like you..the ace in grace I never knew
And I’d assume your quiet trance in preparation for the dance and serve an ace or two...the ace in grace I never knew

The ace in grace I never knew, I wish I had someone like you to teach me how to play and look up to and say...

Do you remember as a kid? all the things you ever did
to do what they said that you could not we'll I guess you just forgot
And fighting down two sets to one in matches just begun and even in defeat, the ace in grace had always won

And I remember all the kids and all the things you ever did teaching to serve their fellow man and always shake his hand
To be proud of who they are and try reaching for the stars and to know the meaning of your special kind of love

The ace in grace I never knew…I think I've changed my point of view
Seeing now that I am grown…The ace in grace I've always known
Seeing how that I have grown…The ace in grace I've always known


from Fountain of Dreams, track released June 1, 1999
