Glen Campbell’s farewell song to his wife

As I mentioned a while back, guitarist and singer Glen Campbell has early-onset Alzheimer’s. He continued to perform, embarking on a farewell tour, until he could no longer do so. He even managed to record some new material for his final album, Ghost on the Canvas, with the help of family and friends.

It was recently announced that he has entered a long-term Alzheimer’s care facility where he will spend the rest of his days. For his final recording he wrote I’m Not Going To Miss You, a farewell to his wife.

I’m still here, but yet I’m gone
I don’t play guitar or sing my songs
They never defined who I am
The man that loves you ’til the end
You’re the last person I will love
You’re the last face I will recall
And best of all, I’m not gonna to miss you.
