It Ain’t Me

It Ain’t Me,
September 8, 2006

    Have you ever had someone end a love story with the words, “It’s me, darlin’ Ah just cain’t help it, it’s just me?” The woman who looks more like a girl is speaking to the audience as we walk in on her performance.

    “This beautiful little singer surely didn’t have someone tromp on her heart in such a way,” I am thinking.

     “Yeah, it’s you, Honey, ‘cause it shore ain’t me,” she went on to say before she started the song she had written, “It Ain’t me.”

    Piper Leigh sang her heart out tonight while we munched on our salads and pizza at the Town Site Café.  Friends we had not seen in 5, 10, and even 15 years were all around us and it was a bit like a family reunion.  It was a nostalgic moment as we discussed the sad times and the happy times we all enjoyed over the years. An old friend talked about her daughter she lost over thirteen years ago and the girl was all at once standing there beside her mother in my mind. I could see the frail wisp of a child who had suffered with seizures that  could never be controlled. Her mother and I were again connected in a deep understanding of the heartbreak of it.

    Another friend I had not seen for around five years was there with her grown family and we all introduced each other while Piper sang Somewhere Over the Rainbow in the background.  We all had to stop our conversation for a pause long enough to hear the throaty execution of the hard to copy melody. It was almost as if it was spoken to a memory of dusty cobwebs in our mind. 

    How such an evening could take fifteen years off my mind and body I cannot explain but it did and for that, thank you, Piper Leigh.  Your wonderful dedication, talent and love through your music lifted us.
