Magnolia
J.J. Cale Lyrics


Whippoorwill's singing
Soft summer breeze
Makes me think of my babe
I left down in New Orleans
I left down in New Orleans

Magnolia, you sweet thing
You're driving me mad
Got to get back to you babe
You're the best I ever had
You're the best I ever had

You whisper, "Good morning"
So gently in my ear
I'm coming home to you babe
I'll soon be there
I'll soon be there

Magnolia, you sweet thing
You're driving me mad
Got to get back to you babe
You're the best I ever had
You're the best I ever had
You're the best I ever had
You're the best I ever had

"Magnolia" was my first wife's absolute-favorite song; she'd play it at home, after a hard day on the flight line - we were both U.S. Air Force, she was the crew chief on an F-4 Phantom, I was radar...She was killed in a single-car accident in the Philippines (my fault - I was driving) one day short of our 15-month anniversary. I had the song played at her funeral (in the US) and wept like a baby.

Forty years, 7 months and 3 days later, I can't listen to this song without struggling to keep from blubbering.
Requiescat in pace, Mr. JJ Cale, and thank you for the comfort your music brought to Linda - and for the times we danced to your songs.
