You Saved Me ©2017 Robert George BMI

Wind was howlin’ all around my cabin
And the storm was screamin’ right outside
I’d been whisperin’ to myself,
Then I took somethin’ off the shelf
And I went down to the riverside
Somehow in the rain and thunder
I thought I heard somethin’ moan
In the middle of the raging river
Was a puppy clingin’ to a stone
As I waded neck-deep in that current
I could feel the water rise
But he never did give up,
And when I reached that little pup
I could hear it in his eyes

“You saved me
When I’d been abandoned
By the ones I needed most
You saved me
And you proved that someone’s
Helping hand is always close
You saved me”

It took some time for him to face the world again
First, we went huntin’ in the woods around the bend
Now we’ve both found ourselves a lady friend
At the local VFW
He still gets scared because his soul’s been scarred
But this cruel world hasn’t hurt his tender heart
I can hear it in his happy bark
When I feed him half my venison stew

“You saved me
When I’d been abandoned
By the ones I trusted most
You saved me
And you proved that someone’s
Helping hand is always close
You saved me
You saved me”

Now I watch him curled up on the bear rug
Sleepin’ by the fireplace
When I think back on the night I found him
I can sense the hand of Grace
I still see that angry river
And that small box on the shelf
Lost in a storm of guilt and doubt
I took that pistol out
And went down there to kill myself…but

“You saved me
When I’d been abandoned
By the ones I needed most
You saved me
And you proved that someone’s
Helping hand and is always close
You saved me”

“Yes, you saved me
When I’d been abandoned
By the ones I trusted most
You saved me
And you proved that heaven’s
Helping hand and is always close
You saved me
You saved me
You saved me…”

Man what a twist! Couch, top notch. Thank you for a great read this Saturday morning.


If writing ever becomes work I think I'm going to have to stop

Always enjoy your stuff Rob! One line bothered me:
"Then I took somethin’ off the shelf"
Somethin' doesn't work for me . I thought it should refer to what was needed. (without mentioning the gun obviously)
Good stuff.
-Mike

P.S. I heard this as waltzy; in a Bo Jangles vein....

Thanks John. Check back in if you can. I plan on having my book on Kindle this weekend. I'm not sure where to post the announcement, though.

Thanks, Mike. That description needs to be vague, easily forgotten by the listener and be two syllables long with the accent on the first syllable. I thought "something" did the job.
