Remembering

Album: Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me (2015)
  • Four years old running up the stairs to your bed
    Thunder rolls and I pull the covers over my head
    You say it's just a storm, enjoy the show
    You take me to the window, show me that it's beautiful
    Never had to ask you to sing for me
    It's just the way to put me at ease

    Bone for bone we are the same
    Bones get tired and they can't carry all the weight
    We can talk until you can't even remember my name
    Daddy don't you worry, I'll do the remembering
    Daddy don't you worry, I'll do the remembering

    First guitar and I just wasn't getting it right
    You showed me how to play it, said it doesn't happen overnight
    And in a couple years I come home and show you how I play "Blackbird"
    And though I miss a couple notes you still say
    That it was the best you'd ever heard

    Never had to ask you to smile for me
    It's just the way you put me at ease
    Bone for bone we are the same
    Bones get tired and they can't carry all the weight
    We can talk until you can't even remember my name
    Daddy don't you worry, I'll do the remembering
    Daddy don't you worry, I'll do the remembering

    Now I have to ask you to sing for me
    And I have to show you the words to sing
    You're standing right in front of me and slipping away

    Bone for bone we are the same
    Bones get tired and they can't carry all the weight
    We can talk until you can't even remember my name
    Daddy don't you worry, I'll do the remembering
    Daddy don't you worry, I'll do the remembering Writer/s: ASHLEY CAMPBELL, KAI JARON WELCH
