'Tis I, my love, sits on your grave and will not let you sleep. For I crave one kiss from your clay cold lips and this is all I seek. “ “My body is as cold as the clay my breath is earthly strong. And if you kiss these clay cold lips your days they won’t be long. “ My one true love is dead and gone, never to return And since I lost my one true love what can I do but mourn? 'When will we meet again sweetheart? When will we meet again?' When the autumn leaves that fall from the trees are green and rise up again. Cold blows the wind to my true love and gently blows the rain

I graduated from Austin High and studied viola performance at the UT School of Music in 1987 while playing jazz fusion in 6th street clubs on the weekend.
