"Raymond" is the title of a song recorded by American country music artist Brett Eldredge. It was released in September 2010 as the first single from his forthcoming debut album, One Way Ticket.
Eldredge wrote the song with Brad Crisler.

"Raymond" tells the story of a maintenance worker at a nursing home and his relationship with a patient with Alzheimer's disease who believes that the maintenance worker is her son Raymond who was killed in action in Vietnam in 1971.
I work down at Ashbury Hills.
Minimum wage put it pays the bills
Cleaning floors and singing hymns on Sunday

Katherine Davis, room 303
Sweetest soul you ever could meet
I bring her morning coffee everyday

She calls me Raymond
She thinks I'm her son
Tells me get washed up for supper
before your daddy gets home
She goes on about the weather
how she can't believe it's already 1943
She calls me Raymond, and that's all right by me

She talks about the clothes on the line in the summer air
Christmas morning and Thanksgiving prayer
Stories of a family that I never had
Sometimes I find myself wishing I'd been there

When she calls me Raymond
She thinks I'm her son
Tells me get washed up for supper
before your daddy gets home
She goes on about the weather
How she can't believe it's already 1943
She calls me Raymond, and that's all right by me

There's a small white cross in Arlington
Reads Raymond Davis '71
Until she can see his face again
I'm gonna fill in the best I can

When she calls me Raymond
She thinks I'm her son
Tells me get washed up for supper
before your daddy gets home
She goes on about the weather
How she can't believe it's already 1943
She calls me Raymond and that's all right by me
She calls me Raymond and that's all right by me
