I did not find the lyrics to this in the DT or Forum. I hope I'm not posting old news. A friend sang this for me just before the Getaway and I fell in love with it. Imagine my delight to walk-up to Ed Trickett singing it on the dining hall deck. It was written and copyrighted by Bob Dyer, and recorded by Folk Legacy artists Barton and Parra on an album of the same name. I bet somebody could post a midi for it.


ON A DAY LIKE TODAY
(Bob Dyer)
As sung by Cathy Barton & Dave Parra (with Ed Trickett) on "On a Day Like Today"

On a day like today, in the heat of this late summer weather,
There's a haze in the trees and the sound of the bees in the clover.
There's a hawk in the sky, there's a shine on the wide river's water,
And I feel deep inside something wanting to stay here forever.

CHORUS: But the seasons keep changing and the days just keep running away,
And forever's a gift you're forever giving away.

On a day like today, in the last golden days of October,
There's a chill in the air and a light haze of frost on the clover.
There's a fire in the trees, there's a sound in the breeze like a whisper,
And I feel deep inside something wanting to stay here forever.

On a day like today, in the heart of a long, bitter winter,
With the light from the moon making stars on the snow in the clover,
I sit down by the fire in the heat of its slow-dying embers,
And I feel deep inside something wanting to stay here forever.

It's a morning in spring, and the dew on the jewel-weed still glistens,
And I almost can hear new life being born as I listen.
I walk down by the spring and I drink from its clear flowing water,
And I feel deep inside something wanting to stay here forever.

Don't know how to do a midi, Janie, but I love the song. Bob, Cathy and Dave are treasured friends. Bob has to be my very favorite songwriter.

Like Jerry, I have the privilege of calling Cath, Dave, and Bob (and Jerry!) friends. They do a wonderful job on Bob's song. Get that recording from Folk-Legacy or Cathy and Dave's web site.

Hi, Jerry........... :-)
