Song Description

Ten Top - Illinois Top Ten - Folk #1 Folk #1 Folk - Rock #1 Folk - Americana #1 Folk - Religious

Story Behind the Song

This song was originally inspired by a powerful dream that I had about my father and as time went by the story and the insight grew. Then I lost a very dear friend to various addictions...thus the sad lines: I lost you on the river You were rowing with your gun And when the bottom was filled with holes You're rowing was all done/ And slowly the song evolved..... I demoed the song back in the mid-1970's and it sat buried with hundreds of other songs want to be properly produced. What you hear now is the end result. I particularly love the lyrics in the bridge..... enjoy.

Broadjam Member Reviews

I like the sound of the keyboards and the drums as well, very good vocals as well. Very unique voice that has a very convincing feel.

    - Randal Dunkle

Loved the harmony .....Instrumentation is on point... feel like I am at church, yet not....yet outwardly.....vocals easy to listen too.

    - Delta Burnett Reed

VERSE 1.
I saw you in a dream
Your were waiting for a train
You woke me up and you made me cry
The disguise you wore it did you well
For you almost past me by
But, we embraced and we held the time
We didn't have to try
We didn't have to try

CHORUS
'Cause old friends will stay old friends
Through distances and time
Old friends can mellow through the years
Like children and old wine

VERSE 2.
I lost you on the river
You were rowing with your gun
And when the bottom was filled with holes
Your rowing was all done
Now, I sleep on half the bed
I leave a place for you
And staring through the moonlight
I dream that I had rescued you
'Cause we embraced and we held the time
We didn't have to try
We didn't have to try

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
There's a hunger in an empty heart
Without love and understanding
But a friend can always fill you up
With the gift that is never ending
