YOU TAUGHT ME WELL (Rita MacNeil (m & l) 1990) Rita MacNeil 1990 Rita MacNeil composes music and lyrics together spontaneously before recording to tape and has over 200 BMI registrations in 38 years. I remember September, the rain fallin' down I thought the sun would never shine I spent all my moments, I heard all the stories Of you and your days gone by. And while I was listenin', my mind it was driftin' Dreamin' of the rainbows end. And in all my confusion, somehow you got to me And I have to say you taught me well. Well into December, the snow fallin' down I felt the cold wind through my door I heard all the warnings, you brought to my bones When ever a storm came by. And how I remember, that comfort and care Something like we'd always known And in all my confusion, somehow you got to me And I have to say you taught me well. And how could I know, the words that you said Would come back again and again I didn't realize when I was your child Just how the story would end. Blessed are those You've loved and you know They never see them again But you know in your heart They all left their mark And you only hope you'll do the same. Then came the mornin' you walked out my door I thought my heart would never mend You spent all your seasons and gave me the reasons To follow my rainbows end. Then hearts that would listen To words born of wisdom Never dreamin' this would end And in all my confusion, somehow you got to me And I have to say you taught me well. And how could I know, the words that you said Would come back again and again I didn't realize when I was your child Just how the story would end. And blessed are those You've loved and you know They never see them again But you know in your heart They all left their mark And you only hope you'll do the same. But you know in your heart They all left their mark... And you only hope you'll do the same. (Transcribed by David Story - August 2013)
