Second Chance Love

Her name was Carroll.
His name was Bill.
They volunteered down at the Good Will.
And that's where this story
Of second chance love began.

They were both widowed,
left all alone.
And he'd seen her pretty face
around our town.
And one day they met,
when they both volunteered..

She got him talking.
It made him feel good.
And he got her laughing
that way he could.
They looked at each other and both broke into tears.

He hauled in furniture.
She cleaned it up.
And later that evening, he called her up.
And they met for pie
Down at the Pear tree cafe.

He ordered rhubarb.
She ordered peach.
Second chance love
within their reach.
And they married that summer
down at the Pear Tree Cafe.

Four years together, happily wed.
Then Bill died of cancer
in their wedding bed.
And two weeks later,
Carol passed in her sleep.

Repeat verse one.

Those are great songs, Buddy.  I went to an open mic last night,   I played a couple of kind of heavy slide blues songs.  Then went with the old familiar crowd pleasers.

Just the way I like it John. Traditional. I have been working on some traditional songs like Frankie and Johnny, You are my sunshine, Your cheating Heart and I'm so lonesome I could cry.  I'm going to put a short vid together soon (maybe today) and send it to you.
