JONATHA'S NOTE:
This was another of the very first songs I found in the archives. It was barely legible, Nora helped me decipher it. And at the bottom "Brooklyn State Hospital 1954." I was working on it right around the time my mother in law was living her last few months. So it was particularly poignant. It's a gorgeous thought though, "When I'm gone, I'll shine bright for youÂ…" I sang it at her funeral this past May.

There's my new star in heaven tonite tonite
There's my new star in heaven tonite
I call it fatherly father "cause it shines so brite
There's my new star in heaven tonite

There's my new star in heaven tonite tonite
My new star in heaven tonite
It's when I'm gone I'll shine brite for you
My new star in heaven tonite

I see my new star in heaven tonite tonite
I see my new star in heaven tonite
I call it sisterly brother "cause it shines so brite
It's my new star in heaven tonite

There's my new star in heaven tonite tonite
My new star in heaven tonite
It's when I'm gone I'll shine brite for you
My new star in heaven tonite

Woody Guthrie
