I'm looking for the song "Today is Mine" by Jerry Reed. I can't seem to find it anywhere on the 'net. Most people seem to think that he never existed. Please help. Thanx.

I don't know about the particular song, but the August issue of Acoustic Guitar Magazing has a long feature article on Jerry Reed. It is the most recent issue, and I'm not sure if it is on the newsstands. I got my subscriber's issue just last week.

I admit I didn't recognize the name of Jerry Reed until I started looking him up. It turns out he was a prolific songwriter whose songs have been covered by Chet Atkins, Glen Campbell, Johnny Cash, Dave Dudley, Duane Eddy, Waylon Jennings, Brenda Lee, Dean Martin, Elvis Presley, and Porter Wagoner, amongst others. His own hits included LORD MISTER FORD, SHE GOT THE GOLDMINE (I GOT THE SHAFT), WHEN YOU'RE HOT YOU'RE HOT, and so on.

Actually, this song can be found at several places on the 'web:

TODAY IS MINE
Jerry Reed (a.k.a. Jerry Reed Hubbard)

1. When the sun came up this morning, I took the time to watch it rise,
And as its beauty struck the darkness from the sky,
I thought how small and unimportant all my troubles seem to be,
And how lucky another day belongs to me;

2. And as the sleepy world around me woke up to greet the day,
All its silent beauty seemed to say:
"So what, my friend, if all your dreams you haven't realized?
Just look around you: you got a whole new day to try."

CHORUS: Today is mine. Today is mine to do with what I will.
Today is mine, my own special cup to fill,
To die a little, that I might learn to live,
To take from life that I might learn to give.
Today is mine.

3. Like most men I curse the present void of peace of mind
And race my thoughts beyond tomorrow, and vision there a sweeter time;
But as I view this day around me, I can see the fool I've been,
For today's the only garden that we can tend.

CHORUS

Not to be confused with "Tomorrow belongs to me"...
