Stop me if you heard this before
I've usually started each 50/90 writing sessions, as it starts on July 4th (Independence day here in the states), with a kind of 'state-of-the union' thing,- where we were, where we are, where we might go, etc. I guess this is no exception.
Started strumming the chords , sang the lyrics, and on playback, came up with those intertwining lead guitar lines, then added some harmonica on top of that as well.
Not sure how much 'production' I'll do this 5090, but I'm reasonably happy with the basic sound of this.. curious how it strikes folks here.
and with that.... away we go!
Stop me if you’ve heard this before
Difficult birth, revolutionary war
Noble principles, a shining hour
Takes a long time to water those flowers
Human nature, conflict and greed
Half of the nation tries to secede
Union prevails, a great emancipator
Gunned down by hatred that seems to be greater
Strides were made, but progress is slow
Mansions on a hill but look down below
same discrimination with a different name
corporate prison industrial game
its not all bad news, there’s been some success
at its best, its all a work in progress
but so much has gone backwards of late
witness the rise of the orange face of hate
and now the plagues seem almost biblical
the challenges are formidable
but justice and truth are not invisible
a billion together can make a miracle
stop me if you heard this before
lose a few battles but win the war
