Story

I loved Bob Childers as a friend and had great respect for him as a songwriter.  He was sweet, funny and kind to me, and always encouraged my writing.  I cried for days when he died, even though I knew he had been suffering for a long time and my friends reminded me he was in a better place.  I still miss him terribly.   We all do.  This song is my gift to him.  

 God bless Bob.

Lyrics

I think the angels could have waited

And let me say goodbye just one more time

I never quite anticipated

Even though I guess I saw the signs

Oh I know you’re in a better place

At least that’s what my friends keep telling me

So I’m praying for the grace of God

To let you go and set my poor heart free

            (Chorus)

            Never even kissed you

            Never even laid down by your side

            But you knew how much I’d miss you

            And you knew the tears I’d cry

Now your spirit’s gone to heaven

And left your soul behind to carry on

Through the love we have between us

And the magic of the music in your songs

I’d like to thank you for your vision

Of the eagle as he circles towards the sun

And for stirring up this dirt beneath our feet

Because we’ve only just begun

            Chorus

I want to sit on the banks of the river

And think about the things you meant to me

And let the Sunshine, Wind and Water

Be the only things I really need

Oh I know how you hated sad songs

So I’ll send my tears on down the Cimarron

Save a place for me in the circle

‘Cause I know I’m bound to see you later on

            Chorus (twice)

I think the angels could have waited

And let me say goodbye just one more time
