"September" as written by and J.p. Bowersock Ryan Adams....
Laura lays on the foot of the bed
Mimics a noose with the telephone cord
Doctor's on the phone
And she hangs up and says
"I ain't never gonna see the winter again"
Then, I don't know how, but she smiles

September, September
September, September

They carved your name into a stone and then they put it in the ground,
I run my fingers through the grooves
When no one's around
Drink till I am sick and I talk to myself in the dog days of the summer
And I feel you coming but I don't know how

September, September
September, September

    General CommentThe saddest song ever written. The lyrics are simple and pure. A tearjerker if ever there was none.

    MemoryIt's been one year three months and twentyfive days since my own spouse died from cancer. Not a day goes by that I don't think of her.
