DENNIS COLE’S SONG

Dennis Cole

Scottie – howzabout a nice, warm, gushy, feel-good story? I’ve recently been experiencing bursts of manic energy, that are probly related to my upcoming demise, but I’ve been channeling it into producing some creative works, and in attending to my final affairs.

Anyway, the muse struck, and inspired me to write my own funeral dirge, and when I was done, I found myself wishing I could still play my old guitar, and put the words to music, but Lacking that ability, I had to try to find someone who wouldn’t mind doing it for me.

Well, a coupla years ago, a man made a friendship request to me on my FB page, so I looked him up, and was quite pleased that I could almost instantly verify he was NOT a Troll, so I accepted him. As it turned out, he’s in the Music Dep’t. at ASU, (he might even know BDR from MPS, who works in the IT Dep’t. there,) and he would occasionally post some of his music, or excerpts from his books, as he is truly a New-Age Renaissance Man, and very talented, and he even has a music studio in his home, for composing & arranging.

So the little bell in my head went “DING!’, and I discreetly explained to him the favor I was asking, as I already informed him that I would be dying soon, and no help for it, except for the wonderful hospice care I’ve been receiving. He emailed me back, saying he’d had a song written, with a pleasant series of chord arrangements, and he loved the lyrics, and said it seemed like a perfect fit. A DAY-AND-A-HALF LATER…………this is what he had for me:

I hope the link works. Let me know what you think, and feel free to post it; I love what he’s done, and I want to share it far & wide.

Look at the Trouble I’m In

Dennis’s Song April 5, 2021.mp3

Nobody knows da troubles I’ve seen,
And nobody’s seen the bad places I’ve been;
Done lived me a lifetime of fool’ry and sin,
Now look at the trouble I’m in.

Now that you know the trouble I’m in,
Is there anything I’d do over again?
My life as it happened
I just can’t rearrange
But there’s nothing that I would change

And nobody knows the beauty I’ve seen:
Sunrise and sunsets, and what’s in between;       
Storm clouds or stars, all thru the nite
But so often in them I took no delight.
 
Nobody knows da troubles I’ve seen,
And nobody’s seen the bad places I’ve been;
Done lived me a lifetime of fool’ry and sin,
Now look at the trouble I’m in.
