My mother sang this song to us. I remember my eldest sister cried every time my mother sang this song. I have never heard it sang by any one else. She used to write songs and I believe she may have written this.
Mike Puhallo wrote the verses on this song and I wrote a chorus and it was done. He said he was feeling the birthday blues. If anyone can tell me what that root chord is, let me know I just happen to think it sounds cool.
