Lyrics
GET YOU HOME

No one's gonna help you
If you're crying in the night
The only path to wisdom
Is the light

But if you're lost and wandering
Just feel quite free to roam
For any way you go
Will get you home

For when your olden thoughts
Have folded up and left
The newness flies around
And makes you feel like you're the best
You're half a notch above the rest
But don't let it get to your head...

No one's gonna help you
If you're crying
No one's gonna hear you
If you're down

Open up your eyes to vision
Let it glow inside
The Hand is reaching out
To hold you
Soon to be
Atuned to He

Hear the Word
Feel the Space
Let it flow
All through Human Race

Race the wind
So cold it blows
The season change
The air it froze

But how can this
Be the answer to
The things gone wrong
Oh it can't be true

Begin again
Scatter out your thoughts
A spiral trail
Through the holocaust...

No one's gonna help you...

(c)1976 Bill Grundmann

More ambition
another ambitious undertaking for the modest equipment that must have been at your disposal at the time. I agree that it might be time for an update of this song.

Alright - I give up
I am not worthy. How you managed to pull of this baroque beauty is beyond me. I could name a whole host of my favorite bands from the day that you summon up - but I won't.

sigh
this wasn't meant to be a challenge or anything.

i actually still hear all the divots on these. yuck. a few more listens and i hope i can hear through all that crap to the essence of what i thought i was doing at the time...

man oh man a lot of water has flowed under the bridge since then.

perhaps we really are mostly "programmed" by the time we hit 20 or so. a cautionary tale to the parents here who might still have time to steer their kids?

it's too late for me.

but no regrets!

The B-side...
...to LET ME GO...

Wow Bill, how come you don't do this stuff anymore? I'm really blown away by this late-70's tuneage. A few tweaks and this stuff could be Alternative folk-rock. EXCELLENT!

Be well!

Yes
Love this. Its like prog folk, could be arranged by Jethro Tull or especially Yes and be a marvelous prog rock tune. Yet it stands on its own as a very cool progressive folk-pop song. Thanks for sharing this. Marvelous. Jon Anderson would love this. You should consider updating this with a full band. Very cool writing.

prog folk
it is great to see your comment - after digging up this tune and hearing it again after such a LONG time, i was tossing around the idea of what "progressive folk" might possibly have been like back then... i apparently had "genre" problems way back then! LOL

i was a total fan of Yes back then - i'm sure that shows here. they were magnificent!

thanks

Oh gosh yes...
I sure do hear the Jon Anderson thing here...

And I can imagine you sitting there faced with the eternal quandaries of the four-tracker or sound-on-sounder: let's see, if I put bass on this, I can't put a lead guitar... or if I do the electric lead, I can't do the cool 12-string chords, or... I'll have to ditch the harmony vocal...

But, I think like a host of fellow listeners, Bill, I'm hearing your very solid chops as a songwriter coming through... melody and lyrics...

Sure, I hear the odd divots... Hence everyone's suggestion that you re-record some of these and see where you can take 'em...

Agree with Tobin...
...this would fit perfectly on Tull's "Stand Up" album. My favorite of the lot.

Find tune, smokey. Enjoyed this a lot...

Aha...

This is perfect!!! Reminds me of...
Paul Simon!... Whatever...! :-) What a TRIP down memory lane Big Bro!!! Your voice is so awesome, and reminds me of HOME.:-) You were always ten notches above the rest Big Bro! :-)

He's going way back
on the warnig track.
HOLY COW its out a here.
This song is so cool.
I love the bass line and the arrangment, especialy when you get to the second chorus and chuck in the whistling. You couldn't just be quite during the recording right.
It sounds perfect. Nice whistling.
The guitar strumming is so refreshing to here.
nice song writing and well put together
i love the old sound
