Collin Raye – Love Me

Today, because I am dead tired from my day job and night class, I shall simply put up a video.
BUT HEY! IT IS A SPLENDID EARGASMIC SONG!
The title’s Love Me by Collin Raye.
And so according to Wikipedia…
‘In January 1992, the single became Raye’s first Number One single on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts; the same year, the song received a Song of the Year nomination from the Country Music Association.’
and…well…
It has also been cited as a popular choice for Funerals.
You’d understand why after you listen.
Believe me.
I cried.

Here’s the tearful lyrics of the song from Lyrics007:

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
Darling wait and see
And between now and then
Til I see you again

I’ll be loving 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
Darling wait and see
And between now and then
Til I see you again

I’ll be loving you
Love, Me.”
