She still wakes up way before dawn Got a list of chores five miles long Grabs her robe and lights the stove for the coffee pot Takes two cups off the shelf and then puts one back And sometime she swears she sees him standing there The sweet sound of his voice floating through the air Calling “Madeline, could you give me a hand here please?” Could you fix an extra lunch for my farmhand Gene? Oh, Madeline, Calling Madeline Noontime the sun shines down on rows of fresh cut hay She stacks the bales alongside the men till’ then end of the day Scrapes the mud from her boots and leaves them at the door Pays the bills and make a list for the grocery store And sometime she swears she sees him standing there The sweet sound of his voice floating through the air Calling “Madeline, could you give me a hand here please?” Have you seen my satchel full of Sunflower seeds? Oh, Madeline, Calling Madeline At night she sits tight in his old porch chair A cool breeze blows over her like fingers made of air The moon and stars light up the yard reflecting on this place She wonders how without him now she’ll keep up this pace And sometime she swears she sees him sitting there The sweet sound of his voice floating through the air Saying “Madeline, could you give me your hand here please?” Oh, Madeline, Calling Madeline For thirty years they worked to make a home here She hears him say “you’ll never be alone dear” And she still hears him, yeah she still hears him And sometime she swears she sees him standing there The sweet sound of his voice floating through the air Calling “Madeline, could you give me a hand here please?” Oh, Madeline, Calling Madeline
