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.
