bill\sables Lyr Add: Rubenstein Remembers (Ewen Carruthers) (27) DTADD: Rubenstein Remembers 14 May 03

Ewan Ewen Carruthers was born in the North East of England in County Durham
He moved to Yorkshire and lived in the village of Rawcliffe near Goole.
It was while he lived here that he wrote many of his songs including "Rubenstein Remembers". A few years ago he left England and moved to California where he now lives.
Joe Offer has asked me to post the lyrics as I sing them so here they are;

Rubenstein Remembers
(Ewan Ewen Carruthers)

There's an old man in the park
Sometimes sits till after dark
Old men often don't say much
Rubenstein is just one such

But if you sit with him a while
He will talk and sometimes smile
Rubenstein remembers
Long ago Septembers long ago

He was born in Germany
Honest hard working family
Jewish taylors don't get rich
But they sew a close, close stitch
He wanted to be left alone
Raise a family, Build a home
He didn't want to stand in line
The yellow star was David's sign

Rubenstein remembers
But he will not say
Where he was or what he did
All those years he went away

Rubenstein remembers
But his voice is still
Throws his coat around him
As he feels a sudden chill
And walks away.
