Martin Devaney - Over My Shoulder

about

I was originally going to give a song from a then-unreleased record, but sometime after the memorial I saw a series of photos taken at the Cedar that day. One shot was of Jen Markey and I doing a tune and just over our shoulders was a picture of Leah on the projection screen and it looked as though she was looking right down on us. A few days later, I sat down at the coffee table and this tune came out. I brought it to Eric and he had ideas for fleshing it out and that's what we have here.

lyrics

Wandering around as a young man at the bar
Felt the warmth of that smile from afar
You and yours always opened your hearts and took me under your wing
And I know you'll be looking over my shoulder every time that I sing

From the Midway out to Greenvale, songs were sung
Prince, The 'Mats, and Frank Zappa...Neil Young
Miss those nights the harvest moon shined full and bright, we had the world on a string
And I know you'll be looking over my shoulder every time that I sing

Now we gather around your posters and drawings and ticket stubs
It has always been an honor to be part of your club
You even paid a visit to the slender one to tell him he had to stay and keep fighting
And I know you'll be looking over our shoulders every time that we sing
And wherever you may wander I can be certain of one thing
I know you'll be looking over my shoulder every time that I sing
