Across the southern tip of Florida including the beautiful Florida Keys, We are in the midst of an environmental nightmare. This has not seemed to reach the national attention in the way we had hoped. I have spent a good portion of my adult life on these waters and it is heartbreaking to witness the decline in quality. A group of charter boat captains are in Washington DC as I write this. Hopefully they can rattle some cages. To read more please go to;

Save The Everglades

Down in sw fla where the water was so clear
The river of grass doesn’t flow like it did Our world’s gonna disappear
There’s a Tallahassee stranglehold they say the money all sits there
corporate sugar’s a political dam something fishy’s in the air

10,000 souls are gone to heaven if the lake starts to breach the dike
better open the gates let some water out Let’s fix this thing tonite
I’m sure I heard a whisper coming straight the captain’s mouth
It’s time to save the everglades so send the water south

What about fifty years from now when all the fish have died
The Seagrass gone and the algae bloom is everywhere in sight
Our drinking water filled with salt it’s a scientific fact
Disaster’s at our doorstep if we fail to act

10,000 souls are gone to heaven if the lake starts to breach the dike
better open the gates let some water out Let’s fix this thing tonite
I’m sure I heard a whisper coming straight the captain’s mouth
It’s time to save the everglades so send the water south

Tom,

This should be the theme song for this cause... Tremendous song. Outstanding vocal and instrumentation. Best mix ever!

"10,000 souls are gone to heaven if the lake starts to breach the dike
better open the gates let some water out Let’s fix this thing tonite"

Incredible writing...

A new favorite!

Bob

Good political song.

John Anderson did something similar back in the day.

Water..... ask California how important it is. They shut it off to the farmers to try save some miniature fish.

Foolishness..... if you ask me. DO the right thing.

Nice job on the song. I could see this being the banner song for that movement.

Terrific! Loved everything about this, my new favorite from you I think.

That repeating riff really makes the song, not to mention the great vocal and solo.

And of course the message which is the important thing, very well written. Never been to the keys, but it's on my bucket list of places to visit. I'm going to check out that website after I post this.

Man, talk about capturing a feeling! Dang!

The lyrics and melody said it all, they guitar echoed the meaning.

I love the feel of this. You don't hear enough of these songs anymore. You nailed it Tom!

Great job!

I just hate that you had to write it in the first place. But I'm sure as hell glad you did!

Tom,

"Down in sw fla where the water was so clear
The river of grass doesn’t flow like it did Our world’s gonna disappear
There’s a Tallahassee stranglehold they say the money all sits there
corporate sugar’s a political dam something fishy’s in the air"

An excellent "issue write". You've stated the case in just 4 lines. Very well done.

The Driving Country Blues is a perfect vehicle for the message.

Excellent mix. Good "passionate" vocal - clean and clear and gets the message across. Cool guitar riff. Nice "angry" solo...

Love that last chord! Well done all around.

Powerful message Tom. Super lyrics on this tune Tom. Super vocal and backtrack. I agree with Herb this could be the banner song for your cause...

Tom,
Great protest song, sung with the conviction it deserves.
One of your best lyrics and the guitar work just sets the song on fire.
Excellent work!

Herb,thanks for the nice comments. You are right. Seminole Wind was definitely on mind throughout this write. I have a close association with that great song having played it thousands of times. We opened several times for JA and in the song he mentions the Seminole war chief Osceola. We are friends with some of his descendants. This song means a lot to me and I thank everyone for indulging me and learning about the cause, Tom

Tommy this may be your best to date. A song sang with emotion about a great cause with the usual Tommyad superior mix, vocals and guitar parts.

I really liked this one.
