    I was fortunate enough to have a 6th grade teacher that could and would sing to us
    He favored Hobo songs, but dipped often into pure Americana S.Foster was a favorite.

    John Renbourn. From what? the 60's?
    Been in my life since I was 20.

    He has affinity for music made of Guitar strings.





    So after 50 years of listening I finally get to see a picture of his face. Big smiles for me!!

    Love y'all, ain't nothin' you can do about it

    Ain't tryin' to make excuses but then
    Just wanna be there for y'all as a friend
    Your pa did a lotta work on hisself
    Just know I love y'all more than anyone else

    [Chorus]
    Tell me 'bout your desires right now
    Don't trip on loose wires
    I'll show you how
    My babies, I wish I'd never made you blue
    My children, my angels
    I'm talkin' to you

    One is too many
    Billions ain't never enough
    Don't take the easy road
    There's no shortcuts
    Spirit kingdom do
    What we can't do for ourselves
    Don't put nothin' down
    Without lovin' everybody else

    I remember "Dock of the Bay" as his last effort. Do I have this right? Sadly, he bought a light twin airplane. These are probably the most dangerous type of plane to fly. They give the novice the idea of extra security with the extra engine, but they are extraordinarily dangerous to fly. There's a brief time period during takeoff when the loss of full power from one engine literally means "You die now! Enjoy!"

    An expert hand is needed at the controls, the flying license for these things should come with a "Warning, warning, Warning!!"
    An overconfident newly licensed pilot is just what these planes Don't Need.

    Never heard this one before, thanks Daniel. Saw him live at Bumbershoot once--What a Treat! Bumbershoot tickets tickets for one day cost $109.00 this year. I imagine this will cut down the crowd size considerably.

    If You All Get to Heaven

    If you all get to Heaven
    Say a prayer for my mother
    Say a prayer for my father
    Say a prayer for my brother
    But most of all please say a prayer for me
    Words of a feather
    All flock together
    Going round and round
    A soul is astral travelling
    Watching human motion
    Wasting thy seed upon the ground
    Discreet intermissions
    Coroners petitions
    Their work goes into the sand
    Voices from the middle
    Are gaining very little
    It's getting all out of hand
    If you all get to Heaven
    Say a prayer -volace menteh-
    Say a prayer for food and plenty
    Say a prayer -sehr sensible-
    But most of all please say a prayer for me
    If you all get to Heaven
    Say a prayer for my camel
    As I ride through the desert
    Say a prayer for the rumours
    The rumours of war
    The last moody summer
    Was autumn in covers
    Bespeaks of dogs in the dark
    A perfect reunion
    Of bloody communion
    Where do we find
    Noah's ark?
    A thousand words or more
    Seep through the floor
    And then take root in the soil
    Growing trees of doubt
    Helpless people shout
    Until their blood starts to boil
    If you all get to Heaven
    Say a prayer for Asmodeus
    Say a prayer for Belial
    Say a prayer for his denial
    But most of all you gotta say a prayer for me
    If you all get to Heaven
    Say a prayer for St. Religion
    Say a prayer for blood baptism
    Say a prayer for it's division
    But most of all please say a prayer for me
    Old men's cigars puff up the wars
    To protect their ****-ups again
    Young men must die!
    To keep the old ones alive
    And to prove they're studs once again
    It you all get to Heaven
    Say a prayer for the people
    Who will kill for cross and steeple
    Say a prayer for righteous bullets
    But most of all please say a prayer for me
    If you all get to Heaven
    Say a prayer for my mother
    Say a prayer for my father
    Say a prayer for my brother
    But most of all you gotta say a prayer for me

    Yay! Adding "lyrics' brought me to a working version of the song on Youtube. Thanks for the suggestion Dan! Awfully hard to go wrong with this group!

    Paul Simon was very shrewd with his choices of African voices and instrument players for Graceland. They made the LP, he's only featured now and again. He had the unmitigated crust to cheap out and not use a pedal steel guitar player for his performance of the track "Graceland" in Central Park.

    What a piker, the steel guitar MAKES this song. Period.

    Very hard to divorce this tune from the Lord of the Rings movie that "came with it." Typical Enya, which I like very much.
