Story behind the song
Originally written and performed by John Martyn, Eric Clapton also covered this song on the Slowhand album. My personal touch was to create a more rockin' version. It's far from perfect, but I think mission accomplished. A Side Note: This is the first Cygnus Studios production recorded directly into REAPER via a Behringer UMC1820 audio interface sampling at 48kHz/24-bit, recently expanded using TOSLINK optical connections to a Behringer ADA8200 ADAT interface. As always, mixing/mastering was also performed using REAPER, which in my opinion is the best DAW on the face of the planet. Excellent products all, you be the judge of the results. Credits: Arrangements, all instruments and lead vocals by Craig Guerrieri. Special background vocals guest: Rhea Pitcher Recorded, mixed and mastered by Craig Guerrieri at Cygnus Studios, Florida, USA.
Lyrics
May you never lay your head down without a hand to hold. May you never make your bed out in the cold. May you never lose your temper if you get hit in a barroom fight. May you never lose your woman overnight. Well, you're just like a great, strong sister to me, And I know that your love is true. And you hold no blade for to stab me in my back, I know that there's some that do. So please, won't you please, won't you bear it in mind: Love is a lesson to learn in our time. Please, won't you please, bear it in mind for me. May you never lay your head down without a hand to hold. May you never make your bed out in the cold. May you never lose your temper if you get hit in a barroom fight. May you never lose your woman overnight. Well, you're just like a great, strong brother to me, And I know that your love is true. And you never talk dirty behind my back, I know that there's some that do. So please, won't you please, won't you bear it in mind: Love is a lesson to learn in our time. Please, won't you please, bear it in mind for me. May you never lay your head down without a hand to hold. May you never make your bed out in the cold. May you never lose your temper if you get hit in a barroom fight. May you never lose your woman overnight...
