Fire in the promised Land - 09/09/20 06:50 AM

Here is an original Southern Fried tune about the social unrest in America. Dylan is too old to do it I guess, so I will. HA. Using BIAB , drums, bass, piano, some rhythm guitars. I added vocals, lead guitars . Enjoy Cliff

Well written (good message) and nice vocal and guitar performances.

Now wait a minute...Dylan is not that old...I keep telling myself.

Enjoyed it!

This is fabulous.
My only nit is that there're a few aggressive phrase starts in the vocal that could be tamed a TINY bit.

Very well done Cliff- a relaxing rocking commentary with some of your trademark guitar work ( think so anyway ) and a good vocal.
Enjoyed.

Good song!
Well performed.
Music & lyrics fit nicely.
Good mix.

About the message:
I'm 100% in support of peaceful protests, with no tolerance for violence or destruction.
Seams we're living in very troubled times that long for normalcy and healing.
