A Boy I Use To Know (Original title "I'm A Time Traveler."©)

Recorded by: HillTop Records, under a country label. Album name: America. #AM-236 --- Released: October '97. Sung by: Kathy Rider Written by: Larry Eugene Peterson.

I'm a time traveler, I travel back in time. Never to the future for I'm afraid of what I'll find I travel back in time, to a time long ago. I travel back to see a boy I use to know.

He's a lonely boy, a lost orphan boy. He walks all alone, no one to call his own. No one to care, no one's love to share. He walks all alone, no one to call his own.

30 seconds of instrumental music..........

I'm a time traveler, I travel back in time. Never to the future for I'm afraid of what I'll find I travel back in time, to a time long ago. I travel back to see a boy I use to know.

I've seen so many tears, all through the years. There was no one to hold him, nor to wipe away the tears It hurt so much to see the boy cry. It hurt so much, I wanted to die.

I'm a time traveler, I travel back in time. Never to the future for I'm afraid of what I'll find I travel back in time, to a time long ago. I travel back to see a boy I use to know.

In 1934, in the year that Larry E Peterson was born, on July 22nd, gangster John Dillinger was killed in Chicago. His gang had robbed banks and police stations, among other charges, and he was being hunted by J. Edgar Hoover, head of the FBI - although many in the public saw him as a "Robin Hood". A madam from a brothel in which he was hiding became an informer for the FBI and, after a shootout with FBI agents, Dillinger was shot and died.

In 1953, at the age of 19 years old, Larry was alive when actress and comedian Lucille Ball gave birth to Desi Arnaz, Jr on January 19th. On the same day on "I Love Lucy", the fictional Little Ricky was born as well. Baby Desi graced the cover of the first TV Guide magazine with a headline that read ""Lucy's $50,000,000 baby" - because the commercial revenue from his birth was expected to be that amount.

In 1972, he was 38 years old when on November 7th, Richard Nixon won re-election, amidst the dawning knowledge of the Watergate scandal, by 60.7% to anti-war candidate George McGovern's 37.5%.

In 1981, when he was 47 years old, on January 20th, Ronald Reagan became the 40th President of the United States. He ran against the incumbent, Jimmy Carter, and won 50.7% of the popular vote to Carter's 41.0%.

In 1998, in the year of Larry E Peterson's passing, on December 19th, the movie Titanic - based on the 1912 sinking of the ship and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet - was released. Winning 11 Oscars, it was the first film to gross over a billion dollars and eventually grossed over $2 billion.
