About the song
My upcoming CD - FINDING GRACE - is an acoustic "concept" record that musically contrasts John Newton's spiritual enlightenment (slave ship captain-turned-Abolitionist) with my own (1980's alcoholic to 2005 dad/husband/ teacher).
Lao Tsu might call it "one path to walking-the-walk." Jesus would suggest we do so, for He warned that "many will be called, but FEW WILL ENTER". I take His meaning as "any fool can go-through-the-motions of being saved, dangle a cross around their neck, and show up in the pews each week. THAT IS NOT WHAT I MEAN BY "FOLLOW ME". Rather, that you CHANGE YOUR LIFESTYLE, EVERY SINGLE DAY, BODY-MIND-&-SPIRIT, TO BETTER LOVE GOD AND LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR."

The virtually archetypal melody of Newton's most famous composition, 'Amazing Grace', has been insinuated into the arrangement of each song on the project - sometimes in its entirety (or in harmony to it), sometimes in the form of a harmelodic deconstruction or excerpting from its humble but perfect phrases. Reviewers and musicians have found it "unlikely", "puzzling", and "uncanny that that one melody works in 17 diverse song contexts."

Charlie Poole Festival headliner, extra b*** in' banjo artist, and Syracuse, NY-homeboy ("GO ORANGEMEN!!!"), Tony Trischka, appears on 'Daddy Only Did the Best he Knew How' and the instrumental ‘Reflection on Parenting’ (this song, as well as 2 other from this record may be heard at http://edge-surfing.podomatic.com/ )performing stereo-duets with himself! Also appearing on the record are percussionist Scotty Irving (Clang Quartet, Geezer Lake), Jim Eanes (Carolina Borderline, Thick & Thin): banjo/dobro, Tina Hart (The Cat’s Pants, Fertile Ground): guitar, Eric Wallack: slide guitar and bass, and the Kudzu Choir (cousins Bret, Oren, Larry, Hezekiah, Hank, and Groucho Hart) singing background vocals on 'Pig on a Swing' - a song about Rockingham County. ENJOY, and God Bless you!

Lyrics
"Daddy Only Did the Best He Knew How"
by bret harold hart

I wanted to try and get this down before we’re gone...45 years of not sayin’ that much is what’s been getting’ me down...Sometimes I flash back to ’65 and see him wiping’ his brow [and I know…] my daddy only did the best that he knew how...Can’t say I was an easy child…I put ‘em both through hoops...And took the whippings I knew I’d get as Dad’s belt left its loops...Now I’ve got tough kids of my own and Daddy’s words ring true...“This is going to hurt me more than it’ll hurt you.”...I guess you never really understood my style, different as it is from your own...But as God is my witness, this man you see, is from your Bible grown...I do my best in front of kids and crowds like you and Grandpa done You showed me how to raise my children right…ask any of ‘em....I wanted to try and get this down before we’re gone 45 years of not sayin’ that much is what’s been getting’ me down...Sometimes I flash back to ’65 and see him wiping’ his brow [and I know…] my daddy only did the best that he knew how … Daddy only did the best that he knew how



"Pig On A Swing"
by bret harold hart

Got a pig on a swing…but I’m not complainin’…Lots of things to bring, including your brain…and we wonder what we’ll do with no cable when it’s rainin’ Got a pig on a swing…but I’m not complainin’ The pig’s on a swing, while industry goes fleein’ Some of us will stay, but a whole lot more are leavin’ And we wonder what we’ll do with no cable when it’s rainin’ Got a pig on a swing…but I’m not complainin’ Just a big, ol’ rocking ham…NC’s “North Star” is hurtin’ Just a big, ol’ rocking ham… maybe time to drop the curtain A big, ol’ rocking ham makes me think of many things I’m seein’ what you show me…I see a pig on a swing The pig’s on a swing, with a handful of candy When there’s nothing’ left to do, we all get a little randy Even preachers do it too, with no cable when it’s rainin’ Got a pig on a swing…but I’m not complainin’...Just a big, ol’ rocking ham… NC’s “North Star” is hurtin’ Just a big, ol’ rocking ham… maybe time to drop the curtain...A big, ol’ rocking ham makes me think of many things I’m seein’ what you show me… I see a pig on a swing
