::family(part 5)history::

Mother don’t worry, I killed the last snake that lived in the creek bed
Mother don’t worry, I’ve got some money I saved for the weekend
Mother remember being so stern with that girl who was with me?
Mother remember the blink of an eye when I breathed through your body?

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons are like birds, flying upward over the mountain

Mother I made it up from the bruise on the floor of this prison
Mother I lost it, all of the fear of the Lord I was given
Mother forget me now that the creek drank the cradle you sang to
Mother forgive me, I sold your car for the shoes that I gave you

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons could be birds, taken broken up to the mountain

Mother don’t worry, I’ve got a coat and some friends on the corner
Mother don’t worry, she’s got a garden we’re planting together
Mother remember the night that the dog had her pups in the pantry?
Blood on the floor, fleas on their paws,
And you cried ’til the morning

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons are like birds, flying always over the mountain

  1. I love this song and it goes perfectly with this photo…were the birds part of the original photo or did you merge two pictures? Nice…

    • There are about 7 or 8 layers here. The birds are their own separate layer of brushes, not in the photograph.

      Do you remember him singing this song at Asbury Hall? 🙂

  2. Aunt Pam

    Is that baby me, do you know?

  3. Mom

    I am guessing that the baby is Tedde, since it is Aunt Von holding her?? just a guess though. Love you!!
