Some I wrote lyrics

Album: Short Stories

Someday when it's all over,
and they come to carry me.
And you're walking slow,
and wearing black,
With the rest of the family.
And the choir stands to sing a song,
make sure it's one of mine.
And a few more tunes I wanted to write,
but I ran out of time.

Chorus-
Some I wrote for money,
Some I wrote for fun,
Some I wrote, and threw away,
and never sang to anyone.
One I wrote for Mama,
and a couple still aren't through.
I've lost track of all the rest,
but the most I wrote for you.

That day when it's all over,
and you're sitting all alone.
They'll call and ask you,
what you want,
To have written on my stone.
Tell them when I was born and died.
The year and the day.
And if there's room for something more,
here's what you can say.

Some he wrote for money,
Some he wrote for fun,
Some he wrote and threw away,
and never sang to anyone.
One he wrote for his Mama,
and never finished two or three.
He lost track of all the rest,
but the most he wrote for me.

Chorus repeat

I've lost track of all the rest,
But the most I wrote for you.
