This is the first song I have covered from another BIAB artist.

This is Alan David's First to Say Goodbye. I absolutely love this song--when I heard it, I didn't hear country, I heard Ray Charles. Have fun! smile

The First To Say Goodbye

(v1)

We both know this love of ours, ended long ago
But we just keep hanging on, why we just don’t know
We can’t seem to find the will or the way, to simply let it die
And neither of us wants to be, the first to say goodbye

CHORUS

There’s no way to resurrect a love that’s gone this bad
We’ll never find the love and joy or laughter we once had
So I guess we’ll spend another day, of living this old lie
Cause neither of us wants to be, the first to say goodbye.

V2

There’s no reason we should be, together anymore
One of us should pack our bags, and take them to the door
Instead we kid ourselves once more, and give it one more try
When either one of us should be, the first to say goodbye.

REPEAT CHORUS

What an awesome song David. This is a very cool lyric and backtrack. Super vocal and interpretation of the song. Very cool idea covering another forum members tune. The ultimate complement

David

Very nice cover of Alan's song (which I just listened to was on holiday when it came out).
Liked them both and great to see a forum members song covered in a different style.
Nicely done.

First of all, cool concept doing a cover of a song written by another forum member!

I must have missed this post by Alan, man, what a great write! Very emotive lyrics.

And the way you interpret them with your vocal style is brilliant.

Loved it!

We’ve had fun interpreting one of Gruve’s songs and several of floyd’s. Another positive aspect of this forum.

And this is an example of how two seemingly disparate members in style can create product that is new but has characteristics of each contributor.

It’s a nice write and one can always count on you to deliver a heartfelt and soulful vocal. And wrap it up in a fine arrangement and production.

Janice has said several times that you remind her of Hayes Carll (a good thing) and she immediately mentioned it when listening to this. He’s a great Americana artist with a wry sense of humor like you! Our fav album by him is KMAG YOYO.

Enjoyed it!

Cool!

It is cool to hear a David Snyder interpretation of an Alan David song.

A vary expressive vocal. Nice instrumentation. You did not list a piano RT - did you play that?

Nice.

Very cool!! I also really loved this song when I heard it. Alan has been doing some great stuff lately. I recently collaborated with him on an instrumental that really grabbed me. Nice cover David!! Take care. Greg

Hey David,

I'm finally here to listen and comment. I just tried to leave you a comment on SC ... but the page froze up. Will get back over there in a minute.

It's always the ultimate complement when a fellow musician covers your song. I am honored and most pleased with your rendition! This is really cool! I'm gonna have to buy me a new St. Louis Cardinals baseball cap now ... the one I've had for years no longer fits!

Your vocals always are so heartfelt and you excelled on this recording. Love the full arrangement. Again, many thanks and thank you for the honor. Standing "O"!

Wishing you and yours the very best. God Bless.

Alan

PS: Di says "Hi David! Thanks for the prayers and well-wishes." (My sentiments, too).

Hello, David

A very nice cover of Alan's tune!
As Scott said, very cool idea covering another forum members tune.
Each personality is well expressed and it is very interesting.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.
