For Her

This song is by Shawn Phillips and appears on the album Collaboration (1971).


I write this song in memory
Of a woman that I knew
She loved me much and I loved her
But then she never knew
And I was forced to go away
There was nothing I could say
I had to leave that very day
For almost two years or more

And now she's gone and I am left
With memories of her breast
And days of life and nights of love
And all the wondrous rest
I shan't forget
And the effect
It isn't even finished yet
It started 'fore we'd barely met
Ten long years ago
