Nother sad song...

"A Place To Fall Apart"

Looking for a place to fall apart
Tryin to find a place
That I can leave my heart
Need to be somewhere hiding
When I feel the teardrops start

Looking for a place
To fall apart...

---Merle Haggard

When I played in a bluegrass band, I had the duty to sing "Little Bessie". It took me weeks of rehearsal before I could make it through the whole song without crying.

Little Bessie

Hold me close dear mother, closer
Put your arms around me tight
For I'm cold and tired dear mother
And I feel so strange tonight

Something hurts me here, dear mother
Like a stone upon my breast
And I wonder, wonder mother
Why it is I cannot rest

All the day while you were working
As I lay upon my bed
I was trying to be remember
And to think of what you said

Just before the lamps were lighted
Just before the children came
While the room was still and quiet
I heard someone call my name

Come up here little Bessie
Come up here and live with me
My little children never suffer
In the long eternity

[At the solemn hour of] midnight
[In the dark and lonesome deep]
Lying on her mother's bosom
Little Bessie fell asleep

Far up yonder at the portals
That are shining bright and clear
Little Bessie now is tended
By her Saviour's loving care

This next song is Dedicated to my Hero, The greatest Man I ever met. He died during 1982. He was the Father I never had. I lived with him and Mama(Grandma) from the age of 2 until I was 12. He never cursed at me, he never raised his voice to me, he never raised a hand to hit me. He gave me love that any child would be happy to have. He loved Christmas and buying presents for us all....he would by so much for us....like we could not have enough. He had a smile that could settle you with ease and a laugh that made you feel so good. He worked in the morning as a Pulp Wood Cutter and in the evening at a Cotton Mill....but he always had time for his boy "Kenny". No matter how tired..he always was always there for me.

When I was 26...working one day...I got a call around 8:00pm at work. He had left early that day to go some where to pick some Collard greens and many hours later he had not come back. Mama did not know where he went, he was like that. He got a cab driver to drop him off on a dirt road. He was picking those greens and had a massive heart Attack. He was 72. I love him as much as ever and God knows how much I miss him.

He was my Grandpa, But I called him "Daddy" and "I believed he walked on Water". Every time I hear this song, tears roll down my face...it takes me back to that little boy who loved him so much.

I don't know about that...but you saying that made me feel good.

My Grandfather was a very special man. I'm sure a lot of you have felt that way about your Dad or Grandad.

That post was for him..........

Beautiful post. That could have been my grandpa too. Never had a dad around. Grandpa worked at Cummins on deisels all his life. Worked himself to death. The most gentle man I ever knew.
