"Please Tell My Brother" as written by and Jeffrey Scott Tweedy....
Please tell my brothers I love them still
Over the mountains on their phone bill
I should call more often
But they know I never will
Please tell my brothers I love them still

Please tell my sister I miss her too
My nieces and nephews and their swimming pools
When I think about her
Her skies are blue
Please tell my sister I miss her too

Please tell my father I love him still
Forget the railroad and all those bills
Head for the cooler
And drink your fill
Please tell my father I love him still

Listen dear mother, I miss you the most
And as I travel from coast to coast
I feel your love an'
I feel your ghost
Listen dear mother, I miss you the most
Listen dear mother, I miss you the most

    General Commentself explanatory, and beautiful.

    One of Jeff Tweedy's best lyrics, very honest

    General CommentSaw Tweedy play solo in Nashville a few years ago. Someone kept requesting this song really obnoxiously. Tweedy ignored it for a while, and then finally snapped and spouted "I played that song at my mother's funeral a month ago and I'm never playing it again!"
    It was awkward.
