Jan 26 2006 - A new song brewing

Charlottesvile, VA 1-26-06

A NEW DEMO OF THIS SONG CAN BE HEARD AT THE FOLLOWING LINK

I am on a bluff overlooking Charlottesville at my friend John Clem's place.
Great view of the valley below. I am working on a new song. Sometimes they come and feel completely cathartic to play.

This one has a good feeling about it-- much the same way I felt about the song "Take All the Sky You Need".... it's cathartic and covers a good part of my vocal range--



Look ahead as well to a pod cast either here or at myspace.com.
I will do a version of the song as soon as it is complete.

I am truly enjoying these blogs. Please do leave a note when you visit so I know I am not talking to an empty cyberspace room.

here's the first edited version... more tweeks to come...

WHERE THE RIVER ROLLS

Golden moon
rising in the fields
A scarecrow's highway
a backroad

I'm lost, on empty
hungry for a meal
and the taste of a day not wasted

when I'm down
I let my wheels roll
round
I come running to you

will you
take the wheel
take the wheel
will you
lay your hands so I can feel

where the river rolls
is where the pilgrims go
where the river rolls
is where I want to go

A moth in a porchlight
a curtain
a windowpane
your eyes
thru a screen door
tell me

held in a whisper
you call me by my name
an alibi
a crickets cry
come run with me

come out
we'll let the wheels roll
round
I'm glad I found you

will you
take the wheel
take the wheel
will you
lay your hands so I can feel

where the river rolls
is where the pilgrims go
where the river rolls
is where I want to go
cool water flows
where the river rolls
is where I want to go

where the river rolls
where the river rolls



Saturday night... I just added the second verse-- I am sure to make additional changes, but I truly like this one.
hope you like it as well...

I will try to get a podcast version of this up next week...
