Searching for a song

I have always loved this picture of my dad, a lot of it being the fact that I can see a lot me me when I look at it. I have his smile, his eyes, and his forehead. I never really saw how much I looked like him till I got married and saw a picture of him then me, thats when I knew I truely do look like him.

I remember this one country song that my dad really liked, I remembered seeing it on CMT and dad saying that he liked it. After he died I wanted to find that song, the problem I had was the fact that well I only knew a few words of the song, and it wasn't the title. The other problem was I for the life of me couldn't remember who sang it, I knew she had longish brown hair and that she was skinny. But I also knew that if I ever heard the song again that I would remember it.

I searched for years on the internet for that song, thinking of names it could be and entering them in and with no luck. I even asked a good friend of mine who loves country music as much as I do if she could help me. We both tried but the only words we had to work with were: With a drop of a tear they're gone. Still no luck in finding that song.

Then a few years ago youtube.com came along, I figured I would give it a shot and started putting in every country music female singer from the late 80's to early 90's that I could think of which wasn't very many and waided through all of the videos, still no luck. I decided to give up the search for a while figuring it would be the never ending search.

Today I am proud to say that after almost 15 long years of searching, hair pulling, fist pounding, cussing, and screaming and crying I finally found that song. I did my usual go to youtube and put in names search and found nothing. then I went to yahoo and searched for ways to find song only using some of the lyrics, which brought me to ask.com. I typed in at a drop of a tear they're gone song lyrics, hit the search button and prayed that it would work. The first match was the song that I have been searching for, I couldn't believe it. I pulled up youtube typed in the singer and song title and it pulled up the video that I remembered watching back in 1991 with Dad.

The singer is Kathy Mattea, the song is Time passes by. Here is a link to the video on youtube, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Dn6f12kBEY

My search is finally over!
