about

Recorded on July 27, 2012

lyrics

My name is Logan Baker
I am thirteen years old
I was born in Kansas City
I will never grow old

The doctor said my heart ain’t working right
There is nothing he can do
My dear mother wipes away the tear
Every time she leaves the room

It’s a sunny day outside
Coming through the window pane
Lying here all by myself
I’m not the only one expecting rain

My father is Elijah
He’s a teamster through and through
Worked for thirty years to own this home
On East 11th Avenue

I am the ninth of eleven children
There are four who’ve gone before
Two sisters and two brothers
Who are waiting at the door

It’s a sunny day outside
Coming through the window pane
Lying here all by myself
I’m not the only one expecting rain

When it falls the curtain call begins
I take my bow, waiting, waiting

My sister Ella has a baby boy
Joseph is his name
Born in August ‘97
He will only know name

The family is gathered ‘round me
We know it’s coming soon
It is April 1900
I’ll be gone before it’s June

It’s a sunny day outside
Coming through the window pane
Lying here all by myself
I’m not the only one
Am I the only one?
I’m not the only one expecting rain
