MITCHELL RAY WALDEN written & performed by SCOTT UTLEY

Mitchell Ray Walden
October Sixteenth 1965
October Eleventh 1995
Here Lies Interred
The body of Mitchell Ray Walden
Who Suddenly Departed This World
On The Eleventh Day of October
Anno Domini Nineteen Hundred And Ninety Five
In The Twenty-Ninth Year of His Age
Just a boy
He’s just a kid
The most bedazzling spirit
I have ever known
Riding the wave of a new generation
Says
He says
He says to no one in particular
Make me famous if you can
So naive and vulnerable
Revealing doubts courageously
Touching my heart with his wounded palm
The one that scarred from a rusty nail
Make me famous if you can
I need to know my life has meaning
I need to know my love is real
I pressed my lips upon his brow
He smiled that smile we all adore
… I wished him a safe passing
Said
I said
I said to Mitch
I said to him I promise
Wait
Just wait
Just wait I said
Just wait and see what I will do
To make your memory lasting
