Lyrics
we were there on monday mornin'
when that fire-ball was forming . . .
and illuminated the dark and barren sky.
i remember my first feeling
the first time that i saw the ceiling . . .
of the cell that i had built within my mind.

oh me . . . oh my . . .
God's alive and he's living in the sky.
oh me . . . oh my . . .
the eternal sky that's inside you and i.

tuesday morning opened my eye
there was up and down . . . sea and sky . . .
a point of view we never before applied.
it was like somebody rung a bell
as the bolts fell off the door of my cell . . .
as it opened up i think i must have cried.

wednesday morning : crack of dawn . . .
the seas went down and the earth was born
nurtured in the early morning sun.
flowers sprung up as the light shone down
trees with fruit on every bow . . .
and fields dressed in a lush and grassy gown.

oh me . . . oh my . . .

on thursday when the sun rode in
nothing much was happening . . .
we guessed that all the doing had been done.
but he was putting stars up there
behind that mighty solar glare . . .
and as the sun went down
we viewed the stellar scene.

on friday morning i woke late
the sweet sound did reverberate . . .
of birds all singing, winging through the sky.
fish and dolphins jumping high
dancing between sea and sky . . .
blurred by tears now welling in my eyes.

oh me . . . oh my . . .

on saturday we saw the creatures
and saw that we had form and features . . .
each alike yet never two the same.
"this earth" he said "is now your home"
"feel free to settle or to roam" . . .
i couldn't and still cannot make up my mind.

sunday woke to a peaceful humm
in the first rays of the morning sun . . .
big G said "i believe my work is done"
"this day shall be the day of rest". . .
"the day that i do love the best"
he looked around and everybody smiled.

oh me . . . oh my . . .
God's alive and he's living in the sky.
oh me . . . oh my . . .
he calls in now and then when he passes by.

this is a song liked by me
Good one CJ! BigJ approves!
Good guitars and vocals, I like the layers you've used to
create a fuller sound. I wonder what they sound like one at a
time, the beauty, as they say, is in the detail.
Nice One On The Cobs.

Cool song
Excellent words really like how the song kept building up.

My only (very minor) criticism is the the rhythm guitar
especially at the beginning was a little thin sounding... I
would have preferred a warmer sound. That said- it didn't
affect my enjoyment of this song at all and it sounded great
once the song got going.

Very, very nice song and top notch performance!

Woohoo!
I can't believe how confident and slick your singing has
become over the last year or so. You've got a really lovely
voice and you're making great use of it.

Love the jangly guitar, bouncy bass, quirky lyrics - all of
it. Really excellent.

cool folk song
Hey John,
I liked the music and vox, guitar sound is
bit "thin".Not really into the lyrics much, but like the way
how you sing them.
I think some slide stabs would sound great.
Cool song.

Cheers

cool folk song
nice one johnny . . .

i didn't think it'd be everyone's cup of tea . . .

but all i seem to be able to write on this guitar is evangelical stuff !

i got this guitar second hand . . .

. . . i think a nun must have owned it before me !

safe though

nice one

Catchy…
… nice lyrics too.

Good one, CJ! Like a cross between 'On Top of the
World' by The Carpenters and 'Leaning On A
Lamppost' by George Formby. Surely both are big
influences on you, CJ?

The b-side's even better...
I can see everyone from 9 to 90 bobbing along to this.

Another brilliant example of the trademark build-to-a-huge-sing-a-
long style.
