a friend of mine sent me this in email and I have no idea where he got it from but i was hoping someone could fill me in.......
<br>
<br>it starts out with garth talking about different message songs and how it takes guts to right them as well as artists to record them. then he goes into a very cool melody of some songs. Since I don't know all the names to the songs, i wrote out the lyrics:
<br>
<br>Has anybody here seen my old friend john can u tell me where he's gone
<br>he freed a lot of people ain't it funny how the good they die young
<br>I just turned around and he was gone
<br>
<br>has anybody here seen my old friend martin can u tell me where he's gone
<br>he freed a lot of people lord the good they die young
<br>I just turned around and he was gone
<br>
<br>Virgil Cane is my name they drove on the Danville train
<br>then Stonewall's calvary came and tore up the tracks again
<br>it was the winter of 65 we were hungry just barely alive
<br>I took the train into Richmond that fell it was a night I remember it oh so well
<br>the night they drove old dixie down yeah all the bells were ringing
<br>yeah the night they drove old dixie down all the people were singing
<br>they went na na na na na na na na..................
<br>
<br>I see fields of green and red roses too flowers who bloomed for just me and you
<br>and I say to myself what a wonderful world
<br>I see skies of blue and clouds of white bright this day in the dark sacred night
<br>and I say to myself what a wonderful world
<br>
<br>love is but a song we sing , fear is how we die
<br>you can make the mountains ring or make the angels cry
<br>come on people now smile on your brother everybody get together try to love one another right now
<br>come on people now smile on your brother everybody get together try to love one another right now
<br>
<br>long long time ago , I can still remember when the music used to make me smile
<br>and I knew if I had my chance I could make those people dance and maybe they'd be happy for a while
<br>February made me shiver with every paper I delivered bad news on the doorstep
<br>I couldn't take one more step. And I cant remember if I cried when I read about his widowed bride
<br>but something touched me deep inside the day the music died
<br>we were singing
<br>bye bye miss American pie , drove my chevy to the levy but the levy was dry them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye singing this will be the day that I die.
<br>This will be the day that I die......
<br>
<br>
<br>any ideas where this came from? i thought it was pretty cool!N

I think it was either, "Man of the Year" or some VH1 program that he sang these songs, American Pie to honor Don McClean and so on for the other songs.N
