May we Grow Love - a prayer for these difficult times - 04/04/20 07:33 AM

Hello All

Well, suddenly things get real. My music partner and wonderful guitarist, Lebz, father has passed as a result of Covid-19. I am so devasted for him.

Liz Petty wrote these lyrics and also, this time gave me the music. Just a simple backing of drums, bass and piano. No harmonies. Just one lead vocal.

Liz sent me the lovely photographs which are just perfect for the song.

Comments are welcome:




Lyrics
(C) (C/B) (Am) (C/G) (F) (G)
may we (C) know (C/B) (Am) closeness (C/G) with (F) distance
and (G) kindness with our (C) love
may we (C) know (C/B) (Am) comfort (C/G) with (F) quiet
and (G) know when faith is (C) enough

(C) may we know (C/B) (Am) (C/G) may we (G) find

and (G) truth joy hope and (C) grace

(C) may we know (C/B) (Am) (C/G) may we (G) find
may we (F) share humanli(C)ty
may we (F) grow (C) love may we (G) grow (C) love

So sorry, Joanne, Lebz and all. This is so very sad. Love the lyrics with all the contrast. "may we know closeness wit distance" Such beautiful words throughout.

Beautiful song and tribute.
My condolences to those who will miss him.

Sadly, many will following.

Thanks for sharing.


I also need to give you thanks for helping me discover BIAB.
I had no idea what it was or how to use it.
I watched one of your vids and subsequently put it on my Xmas wish list last December.

Absolutely a beautiful tribute to a loved one that was sung by a fantastic singer. I could hear your pain in this song.

Unfortunately her father is one of many that will pass this year. Our condolences to all whom have lost a loved one.

Pretty song Joanne! I have been lucky enough to not know any victims of this terrible pandemic, but my time will probably come. It is tragic. Thanks for sharing this sweet song!! Take care. Greg
