Raymond

Album: Bring You Back (2011)
  • I work down at Ashbury Hill
    Minimum wage, but it pays the bills
    Cleanin' floors and leadin' hymns on Sunday
    Catherine Davis, room 3-0-3
    Sweetest soul you ever could meet
    I bring her morning coffee every day

    She calls me Raymond
    She thinks I'm her son
    Tells me get washed up for supper
    'Fore your daddy gets home
    She goes on about the weather
    How she can't believe it's already 1943
    She calls me Raymond
    And that's alright by me

    She talks about the clothes on the line in summer air
    Christmas morning and Thanksgiving prayer
    And stories of a family, that I never had
    Well sometimes I find myself wishin' I'd been there

    When she calls me Raymond
    She thinks I'm her son
    Tells me get washed up for supper
    'Fore your daddy gets home
    She goes on about the weather
    How she can't believe it's already 1943
    She calls me Raymond
    And that's alright by me

    There's a small white cross in Arlington
    Reads Raymond Davis, '71
    Until she can see his face again
    I'm gonna fill in the best I can

    When she calls me Raymond
    She thinks I'm her son
    Tells me get washed up for supper
    'Fore your daddy gets home
    She goes on about the weather
    How she can't believe it's already 1943
    She calls me Raymond
    And that's alright by me

    She calls me Raymond
    And that's alright by me Writer/s: BRETT RYAN ELDRIDGE, TRUMAN BRADLEY CRISLER
