MLMM Tale Weaver 9-16-21

In 1972 we moved from Houston, Texas to Colorado. Our three kids had never seen snow and it just happened to end up being one of the worst storms in history after we moved in. Our daughter was one and she and I got the flu. I remember trying to eat a fast food hamburger when trying to get everyone settled, and could not. Naturally our first shopping trip was for cold weather jackets, boots, mittens etc. This was a climate change for us but we loved it after we were settled.

Unexpected

When she stepped into the barroom

He felt that old desire

What he thought he had forgotten-

Embers of their fire

She only glanced around the tables

Didn’t know he would be there

It was only when she saw him

Remembered how she cared

Life had come between them

Separation by their pasts

Sad desolation caused them not to last.

Cruelty of circumstance, and

Tragedy would have its dance,

Couldn’t overcome it, were given no last chance.

He picked up the bottle, leaving memories behind

Didn’t try to speak to her, thinking it more kind.

She pretended not to see him

But her heart was well aware

She wouldn’t let him see any feeling she might care.

Love and life sometimes, is not that pictured book

She turned and left hurriedly, without a second look.

Chris Stapleton- 2014

Never woulda hitch-hiked to Birmingham
If it hadn’t been for love
Never woulda caught the train to Louisian’
If it hadn’t been for love
Never woulda run through the blindin’ rain
Without one dollar to my name
If it hadn’t been, if it hadn’t been for love
Never woulda seen the trouble that I’m in
If it hadn’t been for love
Woulda been gone like a wayward wind
If it hadn’t been for love
Nobody knows it better than me
I wouldn’t be wishing I was free
If it hadn’t been, if it hadn’t been for love
Four cold walls against my will
At least I know he’s lying still
Four cold walls without parole
Lord have mercy on my soul
Never woulda gone to that side of town
If it hadn’t been for love
Never woulda took a mind to track him down
If it hadn’t been for love
Never woulda loaded up a forty-four
And put myself behind a jailhouse door
If it hadn’t been, if it hadn’t been for love
Four cold walls against my will
At least I know he’s lying still
Four cold walls without parole
Lord have mercy on my soul
Never woulda hitch hiked to Birmingham
If it hadn’t been for love
Never woulda caught the train to Louisian’
If it hadn’t been for love
Never woulda loaded up a forty four
And put myself behind a jailhouse door
If it hadn’t been, if it hadn’t been for love
If it hadn’t been, if it hadn’t been for love
If it hadn’t been, if it hadn’t been for love
