Love, Me Lyrics

I read a note my Grandma wrote back in 1923

 

Grandpa kept it in his coat and he showed it once to me

He said "Boy you might not understand but a long long time ago

Grandma's daddy didn't like me none but I love your Grandma so

 

We had this crazy plan to meet and run away together

Get married in the first town we came to and live forever

But nailed to the tree where we were supposed to meet instead

I found this letter and this is what it said

"If you get there before I do

Don't give up on me

I'll meet you when my chores are through

I don't know how long I'll be

But I'm not gonna let you down

Darling wait and see

And between now and then

Til I see you again

I'll be loving you

Love Me "

 

I read those words just hours before my Grandma passed away

In the doorway of the church where me and Grandpa stopped to pray

 

I know I've never seen him cry in all my fifteen years

But as he said these words to her his eyes fill up with tears

 

"If you get there before I do

Don't give up on me

I'll meet you when my chores are through

I don't know how long I'll be

But I'm not gonna let you down

Darling wait and see

And between now and then

Til I see you again

I'll be loving you

Love Me "

 

And between now and then

Til I see you again

I'll be loving you

Love me
