Benny,Will You Play For Me?

Will you come and play for me

When I am in the nursing home

And old and bent

And can't remember

What happened

Just ten minutes thence?

Will you come with your guitar

That I may rejoice

While you strum and sing

Your wild sweet songs

As in your newly- manly voice

You just now did for me?

Though in my twilight state

I may not know you or your name

Will you come all the same

And for a brief minute or two

Fill me anew with all the joy

Life has led me through?


Benny, will you come and play for me?
