re: OLD WINYARDS PLEASE READ FOR TONIGHT...

For those of you playing with Old Winyards at A&T this evening, please download the following song and check to make sure you can find it in your Songbook in game. We will be doing it as a tribute to Geoffroi during the Opening set.

Thank you!

re: OLD WINYARDS PLEASE READ FOR TONIGHT...

Lyrics:


He was a kind and faithful friend, a minstrel known to all
His hands were meant to pluck the strings and he soon heard music's call
He touched the hearts of many with the songs that he would play
And he gave to us a gift I know we never can repay

A quiet man of music, an LMB kinmate
He tried to be a soldier once but his music wouldn't wait
He lead the band of Andune, with a kind and caring hand
His gentle means of sculpting souls took us years to understand

The leader of the band lives on in our hearts way down inside
And his life runs through our instruments with the many tears we've cried
This is just our best attempt to pay tribute to the man
He surely left a legacy, our dear Leader of the Band

He joined the Lonely Mountain Band so many years ago
With flowing locks and dressed in blue he was a figure all would know
His band of Andune every week was standing by his side
And they've vowed to carry on his dream bringing music far and wide.

We thank you for your music and your stories of the road
And all our hearts go with you as it's come your time to go
We all admire your courage when the times became so tough
And Geoffroi, we could never say "we love you" near enough

The leader of the band lives on in our hearts way down inside
And his life runs through our instruments with the many tears we've cried
This is just our best attempt to pay tribute to the man
He surely left a legacy, our dear Leader of the Band

Love it Tulenn!

Would you consider changing the part that says;
This is just our best attempt to pay tribute to the man to
This is just our best attempt to eulogize the man. or
This is just our best attempt to celebrate the man?

I love this so much, and it would be wonderful if you sang it at the main tribute in the open mic part. In addition to tonight.

*thank you*

Oh Aedon, yes! You know that was the line I was struggling with because it didn't set well with me but I like yours! I am going to change it to "This is just our best attempt to celebrate the man" I think that sounds much better and we really are celebrating who he was so I think it works well!

My dear Holly, I would be honored to do that. I am having family for dinner that evening (early St. Patrick's Day celebration) but if you could let me know what time you need me I will make sure to be there to sing. I had been figuring I'd bring my laptop into the kitchen so I could attend while making my food anyway. No way I'm going to miss the tribute!
