Artist's Notes

This is a bluegrass / traditional country piece I wrote when my mother was dying, last year.

When I was 4 years old I had to stay overnight in the hospital for a surgery.   I kept telling my parents "Wait, I've got something to tell you" to delay them in leaving me for the night.    I thought of this when my mother was dying.   I did not want her to go.


Lyrics

Something to Tell You  

ChorusI?ve got something to tell you You really ought to know

I?ve got something to tell youI don?t want you to go

 

Verse 1 You?ve been with me all my life

Guided me each day

Always there both day and night

Wish that you could stay

Chorus

 

Verse2All the stars in heavenAnd the milky way

Shine down on me tonightI Wish that you could stay
