…don’t know where, don’t know when, but we’ll meet again some sunny day."
This is the last tune on Johnny Cash’s CD American IV: The Man Comes Around, and every time I listen to it, I get blurry-eyed. The reason is because the song puts me in mind of an old WWII song by Vera Lynn called Auf Wiedersehen, Sweetheart.
This post won’t mean anything to a lot of you, but the Vera Lynn tune was my late Mother and Father’s favorite song while my Dad was stationed in Germany during WWII, and I know that Johnny Cash also spent some time there.
What’s my point? Well, I think our Man In Black is telling us he may be leaving us soon, and he doesn’t want us to be sad about it.
I saw no reason to post this in Cafe Society, but if the mods wish to move it there, that would be fine. Basically, I just wanted to write this down because I miss my Mom and Dad. Today is their anniversary, and they loved each other very much.
Sorry if the subject led you astray, but thanks for reading this, if you did.
