about

This was born out of Blind Blake's thumbroll but I put the accent on a different beat, creating a different sort of rambling feel. The opening line I san spontaneously and I knew I had a song there but it was somewhat difficult to create the rest of the lyrics for what will be the song beside my grave, an important song to say who I am for this old universe.

lyrics

If I walk away through this long and lonely winter
In truth you will remain
And if I make the grade I will never fall and fade
Calling forever more

So if I die I hope you play this song beside my grave
Think of it as one more little thing I had to say to you

If I walk away through this long and lonely winter
My love with you will remain
And I will feel the rain on a long hot summer day
Calling forever more

So you see I'm not a liar tryin to get along
I'm tellin' you I love you even though my body's gone for good

And I will feel the rain on a long hot summer day
Calling forever more
Calling forever more
Calling forever more
