Happiness in a new song
I know you have, but I will still ask the question. Have you ever learned a new song and discovered some real happiness, and joy? I did.
About two week ago I began learning two new songs, both of which I should have learned years prior. I don't really know why not.
I recently purchased a new songbook from Linda W Collins, "Beyond the Basics: A Songbook."
While going over the songbook I discovered these two songs, listened to them on you tube, and began learning the songs. Okay! Okay! Tell us the two songs!
First: Lisa Jane; Second: Goin'Down to Cairo. Then I discovered both could be played as one song. So I learned the music and words, confidently enough to play out, Sat for a senior church group and this morning at an Assisted Living Home.
I am hear to tell you, this joint adventure in song went over fantastic. I received the best response from this song, better than any other. Lots of clapping and smiling. "That's what I am talking about", kind of stuff. Loads of fun.
So I would say, to anyone who plays out, if you haven't already, add this one (or two), to your reportoire. Even though it's not a Gospel song, its a "clean" song, and the folks will love it. And you will too.
