Song For Chet

We’ve been asked to post the lyrics to Song For Chet. Here they are. The music is by Mitch Watkins, who co-produced with Robert Edwards. Andrea House is the singer and Gene Elders plays the lovely fiddle solo. Words by Peter Abrahams.

You’re the kind that runs around

Can’t stop to think until the ship has sailed

Till the milk is spilled, till the safe is blown

Till the day is done and we’re all alone.


If they were all like you, would there be darkness?

If they were all like you, would there be pain?

If they were all like you, would there be teardrops?

If they were all like you.


When I come undone, you are the one

Who gives me hope, who brings the sun

Your big brown eyes say this each day

I’ll always love you, any way.


If they were all like you, then those tears don’t flow

And though the pain may come, it will always go

If they were all like you.


And I’m the kind that loves you back

From here and now on down the track

To sunset, where the birds are flown

And the day is done and we’re all alone.


If they were all like you

If they were all like you.

    What a great day to feel well enough to come back to the blog!
    That song is certainly a tearjerker! OFA has done it again.

    HOH- glad to have you back.

    Hi Bee and Wose and all.

    The lyrics provide poignancy here because my boy’s (adult now) rescue/companion of the last 9 years will cross the bridge on Monday. Mom will be with them. She fought the good fight; he wanted to be with her for the weekend. “And the day is done…”

    Looking forward to Pub Day and some fun Chet-isms.

    Mom is fighting her way back to walking. No one knows what happened. She was feeling tingly but when she got dizzy, the DDD rushed her to the ER where she spent 5 days and then another 5 days being evaluated. Who knows? Home now doing R&R and PT. Plunderers, thanks for the strong pawrayers. If you are on FB and would like more info contact Digger there.

    I love that!

    Also love that the Hounds mama is back. I saw that she went into the hospital on YouTwitFace, so…glad she’s feeling better. Here’s to a speedy recovery from…whatever that was…

    can’t wait for the new book!
