It’s All Right is a song about the passing of my beloved mother, Jewel Whitworth. I originally wrote the lyrics from a male perspective (When I was just a boy, etc.). However, when I played the song for Roberta, she liked it and wanted to record it, so naturally, I created a version for her to sing. I wrote the lyrics to the first half of the song while my mother was alive, albeit very ill. My mother passed away on Friday night, April 25, 1997 at 11:00 PM. I feel blessed that I was allowed to be alone with her as she took her last breath. Soon after, I wrote the lyrics to the second half of the song. This song carries quite a high degree of sentimentality for me. Roberta does a beautiful job singing this song, and I thank her for bringing this song to life. When I hear Roberta singing this song so beautifully, it does bring a tear to my eye.
