So much for promising!
Here's the second verse and chorus as they currently exist (subject, of course, to editing, forever editing, never ending editing!)
V A battered picture I keep as a bookmark
The little boy with a catcher’s mask is
Looking out on the field - so much promise
His future bright
That next half inning gonna shine like gold
Future bright, how he’s gonna shine
C Broken bats, shattered windows
Baseballs flung into the weeds
Long ago in seasons past - dreams to words, dreams to deeds and
So much promise
We here at the House Of Strays wish you a pleasant week. Wash your hands, cough into your sleeves, and be kind to one another out there - virus or no we're still all we've got.
Here's a tune from my very first record Will and Won'ts. I hope you enjoy "Mr. Fixit."
