PlayGetting By

by Alyssa McQuaid

This is a song that I wrote based on a true story. A young woman that I worked with, only about a year older than I, was planning to get married to her fiance within the next year. One night, he was driving on the highway to one of the small surrounding cities and he got into a head-on collision with a semi truck and didn't survive. When ever you asked her how she was doing, she always replied, I'm getting by. I wrote this song for her.
