Story Behind the Song

Have you ever gone forest bathing? Listened to woodland spirits? Been seduced by a wood nymph? Then "Sylvie's Song" is for you!...... Thanks to all the marvelous tone woods of my guitars for making this music possible...... Played on three acoustic guitars with a few touches from my Gretsch electric:...... *Takamine EG523SC (spruce/maple), *Taylor 114e (spruce/walnut), *(Michael Kelly J91 Jumbo (Bubinga/mahogany), *Gretsch 5622T (maple body, spruce centerblock), *Fender Jaguar SS bass (Agathis/maple),..... **all with rosewood or ebony fretboards and bridges....... +Glad to add my voice to the voices of spruce, maple, rosewood, ebony, mahogany, agathis, and bubinga......++Where would the world be without trees? What would our music be without woodgrain?

Sylvie's Song
Words & music by Timothy Walsh

When Sylvie calls to me, I go out by the old yew tree.
She serenades the oaks, soothes the maples' autumn cloaks.

She sings a woodland song--she sings it all night long
when Sylvie calls to me right now.

When I am on my own, close to tears cause I can't hear her,
she comes into my dreams, greets me with a smile, our hearts together.

She sings a moonlight song--she sings it all night long
when Sylvie comes to me right now.

I don't say I could tell the world what I don't know.
(I don't suppose you've seen the spirits far below?)
Beyond the world of sight our senses are so slight
that we don't know.

When Sylvie's far from me, I look out at the cedar tree.
I watch it in the wind, branches flying like her wings.

It sings a scented song--sings it all night long
when Sylvie's far from me right now.

Do you see Sylvie now? See her in your hearts together?
She whispers in your ear, makes you long for something better.

She sings a twilight song--she sings it all night long
when Sylvie calls to you right now.
