Hello Darlin'

I've got a bit of a thing about cover versions.
The musical equivalent of the found object.
Already fully formed, but somehow,
Still able to change entirely,
In a new context.

One day I'll make the perfect mix tape - 13 versions of the exact same song.

Hello Darlin' (in reverse chronological order)

Brownbird Rudy Relic Jason Molina George Jones Loretta Lyn Conway Twitty
Hello darlin' nice to see you It's been a long time You're just as lovely as you used to be How's your new love Are you happy? Hope you're doing fine Just to know it means so much to me What's that darlin'? How am I doing? Guess I'm doing all right Except I can't sleep and I cry all night till dawn What I'm trying to say is I love you and I miss you And I'm so sorry that I did you wrong Look up darlin' Let me kiss you just for old time sake Let me hold you in my arms one more time Thank you darlin' May God bless you and may each step you take Bring you closer to the things you seek to find Goodbye darlin' gotta go now Gotta try to find a way to lose these mem'ries Of a love so warm and true And if you should ever find it in your heart to forgive me Come back darlin', I'll be waiting for you.
