THE LAST GOODBYE Red Sovine - 1966 We'd just finished our dinner and I'd gone in the den and turned on the TV When she walked in and kissed me on the cheek like a million times before. And she said, "Honey, I know it's late, but if you don't mind, my shoppings gotten a little behind So I think I'll drive downtown to the grocery store" Well, I didnt look up, just nodded 'okay' and asked her to hand me an ashtray And when she did, I reached over and squeezed her hand, and then she left And I shuddered a minute at the thought of my world without her in it And I reassuringly sought the touch of my wedding band Well, I musta been dozing, 'cos I didn't hear the door And I thought now that's strange, I've never done that before But I looked up, and she was standing by my chair "Kinda snucked in on me" I said, and she smiled and nodded her head And I told her that she looked just like an angel standing there For a long moment she didn't say a thing And then she caressed her gold wedding ring And I thought I saw a teardrop in her eye "Honey, You'll never know how much I love you", she said And I thought of the many years that we had been wed As I told her that no one could be as happy as I And then the strangest feeling filled the room Not one of happiness, but one of gloom And for the first time in my life, I saw sadness in her face I reached out to touch her, and she drew away And she told me again that ours was a love that time could never erase And then I thought I heard a thousand voices singing But I realized it was the telephone ringing And that's when I saw the halo surround her pretty golden hair I turned trembling to the receiver and heard a cold voice Say there had been a wreck out on the highway And I knew that when I looked back she wouldnt be there Because it was an angels way of saying our last goodbye (Contributed by - October 2007)
