"Tell Them I Was Here" as written by and Richard Wallie Boston....
if it comes down to this
if it comes up at all
please tell them...
tell them I was...

once gone, and dearly departed
this world not terribly sparse
and without...
so tell them I was here

please tell them...
tell them I was...

"courage", said the lion,
and patience was a snake
"let's run", says the jackal,
"before it's too late"

I could be dust in God's pocket
or the hair on a rooster's head
I don't know
but tell them I was...

oh, please tell them...
tell them I was here...
oh, please tell them...
tell them I was here...

I'm misinformed
I missed the boat
I miss the mother
to hold me close.
Gone to Hell,
or condescend,
I wanna feel
like it just doesn't end.
When it's time,
I guess we'll know,
and when it's mine,
that'll be the show.

and tell them I was here

oh, please tell them
oh, tell them I was

somebody tell them
tell them I was here

misinformed
missed the boat
I miss the mother
hold me close
gone to help
condescend
I wanna feel
like it just...doesn't end

if it comes up at all...
