Good on Molly and Laurie for ‘flower’ power

I just noticed on the Fretboard Journal website that there is a soundsample of a collaborative song between Laurie Lewis and Molly Tuttle called You are My Flower. I don’t know the song but it is on “Will The Circle Be UnBroken” by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and collaborators. This version sounds great to me!

Laurie released a cd of collaborations (Mike Marshall et al) on her own label.

I’ve really only seen her once or twice but admire her. She played with Todd Sickafoose and James Nash who went to Stanford.

(I jump genre a lot but am first of all, a rocker; a conductor named Dave Moschler said he leads an orchestra that reworked Dookie by Green Day)

Here Comes The Rain

From True Stories
(Laurie Lewis/Spruce and Maple Music, ASCAP)

               A                                             A
I’ve been waiting for so long, I’ve been listening for your song
                D                                                  D
I’ve been scanning the skies, searching for clouds on the horizon
And here they come
          D                              F#m          E
And I know you’re going to fall to the thirsty earth again
Here comes the rain


Research and fact-checking this — yes I do that — yields the unfortunate news that two roots musicians had passed: Charles Baty of Little Charlie and the Nite Cats, and Ron Thompson, both 66. Rip in peace. So where this went compared to where it started I would have to say that the grass is not just as green nor the sky just as blue. But hang in there, dear reader, and keep on rockin’ in the free world.
