Madeline

(A song about my father’s ex-wife.)

Madeline I never knew you the way my father did
It’s funny how some things elude you when you are just a kid
and I was just a kid.
Oh, Madeline

Madeline I still remember when you would call to talk
It’s then my mom would find a reason to take me for a walk
and round the block we’d walk.

chorus
Yeah, Madeline, Oh Madeline, what was on your mind?
Do you ever stop and wonder just what you left behind?
Oh, Madeline.

Madeline, I never heard bout how you both come to meet
I only heard about the way you left him standing in the street
in that crowded lonely street

Yeah and Madeline I never knew my father like you say
I just grew up wondering just what really happened on that day
The day you walked away

chorus
Madeline, Oh Madeline, what was on your mind?
Do you ever stop and wonder just what you left behind?
Yeah, Madeline.

Madeline, I never knew you the way my father did.
