"Change A Man" - From Sheils & Crane 'Next Time' CD

Any new fathers out there ? Well maybe not, but this is what I remember it to be like...

Subjective, Loved the song.

That took me back 47 years, my soon to be wife
had a 6 year old son. He was never baggage,
he became my son on the day we were married.
Soon a sister was here, and then another brother.
All this during my military years.

This all changed me as your lyrics indicated and
might add for the better. Wrinkles here and there
but 47 years later look back and give thanks for the
blessings of the kids, their kids and our lives.

Newbie to mixing really like the finger picking support,
and the the Electric guitar at special moments.
Am listening with my ATH-M40fs headphones.

Listening to experienced, and also new to this, helps
me a great deal, along the the joy of the music.

Thanks for you hard work and sharing.

Thanks Seeker ! I appreciate you listening and taking time to comment. I particularly like these lyrics of all tunes on this CD we did. 'Veteran's Day' is another one with very nice lyric.

Thanks for sharing this song. I remember like yesterday when my daughters were born. Oldest now 31. How time flies!

As the lyrics say so well, children sure change your life - for the good!

Mitch, I think every father can relate to this one.

The lyrics are top notch! Everything else is spot on also.

Two thumbs up.
It has taken me many years but I have finally figured out what I want to be...............younger!
