Being 65 Yrs. old, I really didn’t think I’d be writing again, but all the sudden here its comes… A few years ago I picked up my father’s ukulele that was passed down to me after his departure… my boys often played it before the bridge fell off… I don’t even know how it was tuned, but I started messing around and came up with this… I went and recorded it… that recording does not appear on this version because it was little more than a toy…. But in the first version I started the song with it and faded it out as the guitar faded in… I scrapped that idea for the sake of time… this version is all me playing everything, but the final version will feature my youngest son playing the drums, (he asked to hear it without any of my drum ideas)… my middle son on acoustic guitar… and my oldest son will be playing bass… 

 

It will be evident when you hear the song, why I wanted all 3 of my sons to play with me, but I wanted to get your impression of the song the way it sits…

 

Birthright is an ambush and the trigger has been set 

 

The weakness we inherit will soon be our son’s regret

 

We can turn to the light, at war with self, to ease their future  pain

 

While the sons of the sons of sons will turn and do it all again

 

 

These are the things that get passed down father to son

 

We raise the Kings destined to rule when we are gone

 

 

my father crossed the Jordan with so much still left unsaid 

 

In hope to break the family curse, I held vigil by his bed

 

No message of affection could escape our strong eclipse

 

Before I join my dad in dust you will hear it from my lips

 

 

These are the things that get passed down father to son

 

We raise the Kings destined to rule when we are gone

 

 

Heirlooms guns and coins will have no worth when we have past

 

The love we pass from hand to heart is one thing that will last... 

 

 

A brief time is all we have to pass this love from heart to hand

 

And someday look behind to see strong generations stand... 

 

 

peace will reign    blessing the sons of the sons

  1. A family affair with music is happening here. The production is clean and bright. The musicianship supports the record perfectly. Nits? None for the music presented!
    The lead vocal is out of tune frequently, and in unhelpful ways. Usually this is at the end of the lines, where the singer is adding some gospel vituperation. He does not have enough air to pull off the inflections and the result is the lines go sharp. It would be instructive to put a pitch meter on the vocal, if there is a problem hearing what I am talking about. Might be possible to use pitch correction to fix what is there. But I suggest redoing the vocal with this one as a guide. Break the lines into smaller pieces, perhaps do your signature vocal stylistic adds one at a time so they are in tune. The work is really good and clearly deserves rescue effort… it’s a family heirloom. Bravo!
