Do You Remember


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This song started out two weekends ago as a sketch around a few nice chords. For some reason it developed into a rather poignant trip for me down memory lane to a very sad event over 20 year ago..... the loss of my young sister-in law.

I recorded and mixed this from scratch yesterday and I'm really pleased with how it has turned out ..... but I do apologise for my faltering vocals...... my singing is usually confined to the shower! I'd love it if someone out there with a decent voice wanted to collaborate on vox

cheers and thanks for listening!

Lyrics
Do you remember that day
When Jane passed away
I didn’t know what to say
To anyone, anywhere

We were in the Welsh peaks
For the three thousands round
We sweated off pounds
Dawn ‘til dusk, up and down

Though the going was tough
On that thirty mile race
So much easier to face
Than your lonely last hours
-------------------------
Still I focussed on you
For all of that day
And in a strange kind of way
You helped me get through

How could fate be so cruel
To spare the sinner and fool
Yet steal a young wife
And mother of two
--------------------------
And for those who remain
Can their lives be the same?
You should know that the answer
Is no, surely no

Still your memory lives on
Though the years have rolled by
Your grown kids are free spirits
I see you in their eyes

Born and bred in Liverpool and like most kids from that place got my first guitar as a young teenager (in the late 60s). I've been dabbling with a guitar or two ever since and couldn't imagine life without one. I've never had any musical training (pr... [see more]
