CAMPFIRE PROPAGANDA, VOLUME 1

10 Jun, 2020 | Return|

Friends,

I wrote these songs and have re-imagined some of them in a new setting.

This is my way of supporting the cause of bolstering equality and fighting oppression.

I have also written a new song (Son, My Son) based on an experience I had while heading to the demonstration on June 4th, 2020 in Nashville. I recorded it and other originals for an album called CAMPFIRE PROPAGANDA, VOLUME 1. From now until November 3rd (Election Day), 100% of the proceeds from this record will go to DefendingBlackLives.org 

The album is released in digital form only, on Bandcamp

Son, My Son

I went down to the market

to buy whatever I wanted

I told the woman who worked there

I was afraid to leave my home

She said “son, my son, that’s how I feel ev’ry day.”

I got back in my automobile

to fill the tank again

I told the station worker

I was afraid to go downtown

She said “son, my son, that’s how I feel ev’ry day.”

At the demonstration

I faced all the police

They looked afraid behind their masks

I just wanted to tell them

Son, my son, we don’t have to live this way

Son, my son, we don’t have to live this way

Sons and daughters, we don’t have to live this way

I laid my head on the pillow

safe and sound at home

I prayed to God for an answer

I really wanted an answer

How do we help each other?

She said “son, my son, that’s what I ask ev’ry day

Son, my son, that’s what I ask ev’ry day”
