Rosalie

As requested, the lyrics. I also posted them on the video comments, but I think it takes hours for any changes to register, so here y'are.

Rosalie

Sweet Rosalie of mine
See how the love within her shines
through the miles between us, dark and deep
like the stars I see her as she sleeps

The watchfires dwindling in the camp
The Captain writing by his lamp
The sentry listens for any sound
across a darkened battleground

Back there the whitetails roam the pines
The hillside is blue with columbines
The river tumbles cold and free
Those mountain summers hold me

The bugle calls us as we lay
We'll cross that field at break of day
and dying holds no fear for me
except to lose you, Rosalie

Almost 10 years ago now, I had a very odd dream. In this dream, John Lennon sang a song to me about a rainbow. There was nothing strange or saint-like or anything about John in this dream. It was as though a friend of mine were sharing a song with me. I remembered the melody and the first verse after I woke up, and I sat down with a pen and paper and wrote the rest of the song.
And so, with a dedication to John, and to all of you flower children, here's The Rainbow. Peace.

Well, jeepers! I lost track of this thread for a bit and lookie what you've posted! WOW! Love the Rainbow and couldn't listen to the Shanty for Barry without crying my eyes out. You are one of the best writers, of songs, prose, and poetry, I've ever know LeeJ. THANKS for sharing with us!

Oh, and Ken Burns would have done well to have included your Rosalie in his Civil War series. It exceeds most of what he included and definitely would have relieved the tedium of repetition! Beautiful song.

A couple of years ago, I was riding my bicycle along the Platte River and thinking about the many friends and good times at the FSGW Getaway. Along with these thoughts, a tune came into my mind that kept revolving until it eventually spun out the chorus of this song, and by the time the ride was over, most of the rest of it was complete as well. Did a little research to give a bit of historical depth, and here it is and hope y'all enjoy it...

Well, that was a hard song to do, but it had to come out. My significant other says she thinks I get hung up on sad songs, and I guess Justin, and A Song for You, and Rosalie kind of bear that out. What can I say? This world is downright tragic sometimes, which I suppose makes the bright side brighter. It doesn't change the fact of what is happening in places like Afghanistan though.

I thought of a mother who was interviewed on NPR about her young son that was killed there. She said she was told he was a hero, and that he had lived a good life, by the Army spokesman. She said he was only a boy, and never had a chance to really live any kind of life at all, much less a "good one". We get used to seeing the names and closing our eyes to the truth of it. I watched it happen yesterday, like I watched it happen 40 years ago, like it has happened since we began fighting each other. I know there are reasons for fighting, and I know these soldiers died for those reasons. But I see these kids at the airports looking like pink-cheeked children in fatigues and I can't help but think ...what a waste.

It really struck a true note, Ernie.

"A soldier based at Ft. Bragg..." or "A Marine based at Camp Lejeune... died yesterday in Afghanistan...." comes over my radio several times a month, and sometimes several times a week, during the local news portion of NPR. Some of them homegrown North Carolina boys, many more from places all across these United States. I listen to the sparse details, which always includes the age of the soldier. Corporal__________, age 21. Private ___________, age 19. Sargeant __________age 23.

It stops the heart to think about.
