Hi Folks -

    I wonder if anyone out there has picked up on this number yet ?

    I'm mesmerized by the tune and by the message in general.    All I've been able to learn about the song is that it was supposedly part of a demo for a 'to-be-released' CD or album... A visit to Tom Rush's web site wasn't much help (perhaps I didn't persevere)...

    Any help with the lyrics would be most appreciated -

    Thanks -

    M.

According to a search link, I came up with :


   We have had several member inquiries about the titles and lyrics for Tom's recordings.   The songs on the Work In Progress tape are, according to Tom, in "various stages of completion" and are:


All A Man Can Do (words & music by Richard Dean), - a song military folks can relate to.

A further search with Richard Dean's name did not come up with anything further.

ALL A MAN CAN DO
(Richard Dean)

Well it seems so long ago, I took the train to Quanico
I kissed my mama, shook my father's hand
I was just a raw recruit, dressed up in my soldier suit
Fresh and young without a clue, what I thought a man should do

Take your chances take your shot, cause 50/50's all you got
Make each day the best you can, that's a line I understand
Live each moment like your last, cause life goes by you so damn fast
Make a promise and keep it true cause that is all a man can do

I took my engine made of steel, I walked it through the killing fields
I took the time to say a prayer or two,
I made some friends along the way, some returned some had to stay
And some of us could bear the pain, but some were never quite the same

Take your chances take your shot, cause 50/50's all you got
Make each day the best you can, that's a line I understand
Live each moment like your last, cause life goes by you so damn fast
Make a promise and keep it true cause That is all a man can do

It doesn't seem so long ago, I hitched down to New Mexico
I kissed my mama, I saw my father's stone
Friends are gone or out or touch, but nothing seems to change that much
The desert's hot the sky's still blue, I'm getting by still making due

Take your chances take your shot, cause 50/50's all you got
Make each day the best you can, that's a line I understand
Live each moment like your last, cause life goes by you so damn fast
Make a promise and keep it true, cause that is all a man can do
Make a promise and keep it true, cause that is all a man can do




Got them at lyricsdirect which is the clumsiest site on the 'net.

Tom Rush's version of Richard Dean's "All a Man Can Do" appears on Tom's first studio CD in 35 years, "What I Know," released earlier this year by Appleseed Recordings (www.AppleseedMusic.com). The lyrics to the song are included in the CD's booklet. AND it,s a great CD!
