Someday You'll Call My Name

     I learned "Someday You'll Call My Name and I Won't Answer" from an lp record sung by Hank Williams. It makes me uncomfortable to admit that I never heard of Hank Williams until after he died. Then my younger sister informed me that I had missed a very special singer. When I began to hear him on record, I agreed she was quite right. The period beginning in the Fall of 1948 and ending in early 1952 was dedicated to my status as a graduate student and the University of California, Berkeley. I acknowledge that I missed hearing a great amount of wonderful music, but I did establish a foundation for a life that had many satisfactions and did not rule out my listening to my favorite music in the way that the graduate student milieu did.

Someday you'll call my name and I won't answer,
Someday you'll reach for me, I won't be there.
You've grown tired of all the love I gave you,
But someday you'll wish that I still cared.

    All these years how I've loved you,
    Still I know I claim you for my own.
    Someday you'll call my name and I won't answer,
    For someday you'll find yourself alone.

When your hair has turned from gold to silver
And your eyes are dimmed by passing years,
Please remember, darlin', what I've told you,
There'll be no one then to dry your tears.

    There'll come a time in your life, dear
    When you'll need someone who will care;
    Someday you'll call my name and I won't answer,
    For someday you'll find that I'm not there.
