Marry You Again (a mostly true story)

Happy Birthday to my wife Augusta!. (Click HERE or on the image below to hear the song, "Marry You Again")  She had no knowledge that this song had be completed, recorded and written for her.  This song was inspired "loosley" by the ever-evolving nature of raising a family, meeting financial needs, and the struggles of everyday storms. Its not a secret to many that Augusta and I were married not once, but twice. And lucky for me, the nature of our relationship over the years has given me SO MUCH great material to write about that if you look deeply enough into most of my songs, you will find little nuggets of our life together splattered all over the lyrics of my songs. This one is no exception. I loved writing this song because I wanted to tell the story of a wedding, cursed with a storm, driving rain, wind etc and then cross it over to the metaphorical journey into the storms that continue throughout a marriage and overcoming them. The end has still yet to be written. (I just hope it doesnt end with a boat and a divorce...LOL) The lyrics are below.  I hope you all enjoy this latest release.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Marry You Again 

Robert Abernathy (BMI) 

Verse 1

I remember that white dress blowing in the wind 

Doesn't seem that long ago, It was our wedding Day 

And as the sky began to fall  

They all scattered, was no one left at all 

Except for me and you and that preacher man 

They all thought we were insane 

And we said “I do” a time or two 

Beneath the driving rain 

Chorus 

Though the Storm just wont fade 

And the Rain keeps coming in 

And every broken thing from shattered dreams 

Are just blowing in the wind 

Andf if those flood waters rise 

And try to drown all we have been 

I’d still marry you, marry you 

Marry you again. 

Verse  2

Well Im not gonna lie and say its been a bed roses 

Love is walking with a friend into a hurricane 

If theres a time you gotta believe 

Its when those waters  recede 

And your standing there drenched in what remains 

We just say “bring it on, bring it on” 

Bring on the Rain 

Chorus 

Though the Storm just won't fade 

And the Rain keeps coming in 

And every broken thing from shattered dreams 

Are just blowing in the wind 

And if those floodwaters rise 

And try to drown all we have been 

I’d still marry you, marry you 

Marry you again. 

Bridge 

Should the troubled waters take me away 

And should I ever lose my way back to you 

Would you rescue me like a castaway 

Whisper the words “I do” and say…. 

Chorus 

Though the Storm just won't fade 

And the Rain keeps coming in 

And every broke thing from shattered dreams 

Are just blowing in the wind 

And if those floodwaters rise 

And try to drown all we have been 

I’d still marry you, marry you 

Marry you again.
