Talented Tuesday: Lyrics & Music

When I reflect on my parent’s lives, I think, “Wow! They really knew how to live.”  There was never a dull moment, and if there was, it was because we were asleep, and even then, there was noise, as my father snored so loud you would think a train was running through the house!

I remember my parents always coming up with a tune, a beat, some words, and making their own music.  There was always something being created at home.  Our home was always lively, yes, and there were only four of us that lived in the home.

Below are some songs my parents created.

THE WONDERER

WALTER J. PORTER & BETTY M. PORTER
I WONDER WHY MY BABY LEFT POOR ME/repeat 4 times
I WONDER WHERE COULD MY BABY BE/ repeat 3 times
I WONDER WHY MY BABY LEFT POOR ME
I WONDER WHO IS HOLDING HER TIGHT/repeat 4 times
I WONDER WHY MY BABY LEFT POOR ME

WHO WHERE WHY, WHY, WHERE WHO

CAUSE MY HEART WON’T KNOW PEACE OR CONTENTMENT
TIL SHE BRINGS HER LOVE BACK TO ME
