Subject: Lyr/Tune Add: MAY THE PATH LEAD YOU SAFELY HOME...
From: Barbara

Here's another good parting song.
Blessings,
Barbara

MAY THE PATH LEAD YOU SAFELY HOME TO ME
by Geoff Morgan

May the sun always shine on your journey
May the road by gentle and free
Like the cloud brings the rain to the valleys
And may the path lead you safely home to me
CHORUS:
Let the wind always be at your shoulder
And the way always come to find your feet.
If you fall, let my love be a pillow,
May the path lead you safely home to me

May night always find you in her keeping
May your days all grow from fertile seed
May your burdens be light enough to carry
And may the path lead you safely home to me.

Chorus &
La, la la to chorus tune

May you never feel that there's no one
May you always accomplish what you need
May you always remember where you're going,
And may the path lead you safely home to me.

Chorus &
last chorus ...And may the path lead you safely back to me.

And here's the tune:

Nice song, Barbara - can you tell us anything about the song, or about Geoff Morgan?

Glad you asked, Joe. Did you know Jane Doyle when she lived in Chico? Went to the song circles around that area for a while, sang with Dick Holdstock for a couple years? She has this lovely tenor voice and a wonderful collection of sharp funny political songs, as well as ones like this. I learned this from her years ago, and only discovered last year that it was written by Geoff Morgan, a Bellingham area songwriter who tried and then left the Nashville scene because they wouldn't let him write what he wanted. I took a songwriting class from him at Puget Sound Guitar Workshop, maybe 6, 7 years ago, and met him then. He has some really good songs out. I have his tape, "Talk it Over", think he's got a couple more. Fine person, a lot of heart to him, and it comes through in his songs. He has a really powerful one about AIDS (never mentions the word). Check out the tapes!
Blessings,
Barbara
