|Amazing charcoal work by an even more amazing artist. You should see what else he has on his page. I promise you that it will be worth the visit!|
I wrote my own arrangement of an old song, and would appreciate it if you would take a moment to listen.
There was an old black and white movie starring Bette Davis called "Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte" and there was a music box that played a beautiful melody. I looked everywhere for the music to this song, but alas, it was out of print. I wrote my own arrangement for orchestra and flute, adding a counter melody of my own. I would love to know what you think...
I have given the lyrics the melody in the box below:
|Hush hush, sweet Charlotte|
Charlotte, don't you cry
Hush hush, sweet Charlotte
He'll love you till he dies (Chorus)
Oh, hold him darling
Please hold him tight
And brush the tear from your eye
You weep because you had a dream last night
You dreamed that he said goodbye
He held two roses within his hand
Two roses he gave to you
The red rose tells you of his passion
The white rose his love so true
And every night after he shall die
Yes every night when he's gone
The wind will sing you this lullaby
Sweet Charlotte was loved by John
The person, you can't live without|
Often is one, you couldn't live with, either
It is easy to want what you don't have
When you don't have it
And hard not to want something else when you do
So the big love in a lot of lives
Is the one that got away...
