LOVE, ME (Skip Ewing / Max T. Barnes (m & l) ) As sung by Collin Raye released 1991 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 Darlin' wait and see And between now and then 'Til I see you again I'll be lovin' 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 Darlin' wait and see And between now and then 'Til I see you again. I'll be lovin' you Love, me." "Between now and then 'Til I see you again I'll be loving you Love, me." Notes: Collin Raye is an American singer and bass guitarist from Arkansas. Although he is known primarily for his country pop work, often his songs also reflect social issue and many know him for this. Such topics have included child abuse, alcoholism, religion, wars, and death. Interestingly two of his best known songs (emotional offerings as they are) are often requested for weddings and funerals, the former perhaps being IN THIS LIFE 1992 and the latter, this composition from 1991.
