Will you remember me, like the circle of stones,
On the ancient hills where you walk alone?
Where the wind can speak my secret name,
Like the air you breathe, will you remember me.
Will you remember me as your airplane flies?
Over foreign seas and breaking skies-
Like a perfect child you can't bear to leave,
In your last long days, will you remember me?
Will you remember me on the edge of life,
Where time runs slow; where song can fly
In these shuttered rooms, where we say goodbye,
When the soul is free, will you remember me?
When there's no need to breathe, will you remember me?
Rosanne wrote this song after June and Johnny passed away. June died May, 2003 and Johnny passed away same year on Sept., 2003. Both their family's are still involved in music. I might note that June and Johnny's home burned to the ground in 2007. They lived in it for 35 years and sill lived in it when they passed away and they wrote most of their music from there.
