Description
I posted a version of this song in February 2006 that I sang the vocals on, but was not happy with it. Later in May of 2006 I asked MacJams member and friend Richard Schletty if he'd sing the vocals for me on this mix.

My brother John ( FEEL ) played his magic with the lead guitars and bass tracks.

I played rhythm guitar on my Strat, compiled a very repetitive and boring drum loop track using chopped up BigFish Audio loops (heh, sorry about that), and did the mix in Cubase

This is a song about our wayward brother Tim....

Song of 11

You know your mother was a real straight shooter
Your daddy flew the skies, a true sky trooper
Together they taught love, a song, a story
They dedicated all this to His glory

Did you ever think?
Did you ever know?
It wasn’t all for you –
Will you take a drink
Of this fountain flow?
Don’t take it all for you!
Are you on the brink
Of a passion show?
It isn’t all about you!!

Back in those days when you were taught and tutored
Those times, establishment and war refuted
You gave it all your worth to live the new rule
Living with Mary Jane and friends school

Did you ever think?
Did you ever know?
It wasn’t all for you –
Will you take a drink
Of this fountain flow?
Don’t take it all for you!
Are you on the brink
Of a passion show?
It isn’t all about you!!

Your little siblings were the closest to you
Like you, their music is a song to speak through
So take these words of mine to hear a refrain
Of lost love, fellowship and long heart felt pain

Did you ever think?
Did you ever know?
It wasn’t all for you –
Will you take a drink
Of this fountain flow?
Don’t take it all for you!
Are you on the brink
Of a passion show?
It wasn’t all for you!!

A Tune From *HAIR 2* ?
It could have been, if there had been a HAIR 2. It's got a real rock musical feel to it, Harold. I guess a good part of that is due to Richard's vocal, but the song itself lends itself to that sort of treatment. John's axe wails nicely on this trip and your Strat cut a fine rhythm. ;)
