I received a message last night that Travis Edmonson, who just had a cancer biopsy performed, did not respond well and is now in very critical condition in the Phoenix, Arizona area. Travis, if the name doesn't ring a bell, was one half of Bud & Travis, the great duo of the late 1950's and early 1960's. Their work with two classical guitars and great harmonies was often quite remarkable, especially their Latin American songs such as Malaguena Salerosa and Rayito de Luna. He was also a member of the Gateway Singers and had a solid solo career both before and after Bud & Travis. The family is asking for prayers of support.

That's very sad. I've been looking for his song "The things I've saved" but can't find it anywhere.
Now is probably the time to sing it.
It's about 40 years since we used to sing it so I'll see if I can remember.....

The things I've saved

I'm finally leavin'
After all
One more word I don't wanna holler down the hall
Everybody leaves something when they go away
When I'm gone here's what I hope will stay....

Violets in springtime,
Starry nights in fall,
Sunlight on a summer's morning (evening?)
Love to warm you when the snowflakes fall,
The spark that's in the eyes of children,
Secrets whispered by the sea,
Countryside like a great cathedral
A place called home, a land forever free.
This will be my last will and testament
Being of sound body and mind
This will be my last will and testament
These are the things I've saved
To leave behind.


I think that's it. Not really what I call folk anymore but we used to belt it out in the 60s and my sister and I both love the sentiments.
I'll try to sing it for you Travis.
Go in peace.
Robyn

Robyn:

If you go onto the travisedmonson.com website and click on "songs," there is a clip of this one. A wonderful, timely sentiment.\

Sorry to hear this, after learning about him in the other thread. May he and his family find peace and ease.

Thanks TJ.
Just a couple of corrections:

I'm finally leavin'after all
One LAST word.....
Everybody leaves something when HE goes away...

Trouble is, the clip stops just as the song gets started.

I hope he pulls through - the news site suggested it wasn't actually the cancer but the treatment that was upsetting him.
Hang in there Travis.
