Got a new song here. This one inspired by my late Dad, who's been gone now for 6 years. I guess he would've turned 88 years old a couple weeks back, so he's been on my mind. Anyway, this one is about losing one's "hero", the loss one never seems to get over. Bu,t it is also about paying tribute and due respect, so there are some positive "vibes" as well.
Mostly used Realtracks on it (piano, fiddle, bass, drums), but there is an acoustic guitar, faintly in the back, that I played. I edited the fiddle, using appropriate bits and pieces where I felt they were appropriate. Timing is off on background vocals in the chorus, but it's late, dog ate my homework, etc, etc... I Sing This Song
Here are the lyrics, in case anyone cares to follow...
Thanks for the listen!
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++I Sing This Song
You know you meant so much to me
You gave me eyes so I could see
You know I was your biggest fan
You made me proud of who I am
I think of you every day
I won’t forget you, tho’ you’ve gone away
You taught me how to tell right from wrong
It’s for you, I sing this song
I miss you more than you’ll ever know
I try to be brave, but my pain still shows
I know you’d want me to be strong
And it’s for you, I sing this song
You’ve been gone now for several years
The day you left is still so clear
I never wanted you to go
I sing this song, so you will know
