H-V Day

23valentines.jpg

I had a great time in Tucson. Herr Couch sure threw a great house concert for his gal Julia. I like playing house concerts or living room shows or whatever you want to call 'em. Tucson is a great place to hang around and loiter in. There were folks that drove out from San Diego. Brides and grooms. Dog and cats. Vegetarians and bacon wrapped hot dog eaters. Flowers grew through the cracks in sidewalks. Clouds were puffy white snow balls and the air was cool and sweet. Everything was perfect for once. Here is what it looked like from my view.

Listen Here

Take these hands that I give you
Theyíre shaky but still true
Filled with all the love I can hold
And this heart that I show you
I hope I can know you
Iím cautious but Iíll try to be bold
If this honest vow can somehow be heard
Then I love you and you have my word

These flowers that I show you
On the shelf here below you
Were grown in a garden of love
And your eyes that you show me
Say please get to know me
They fit me just like a glove
If this honest vow can somehow be heard
Then I love you and you have my word

I only wanted you to be with me
Iíve been slowly haunted
Only you can set me free

In this home that we share
Built here with care
I hope I can grow old with you
You can make me turn red
Spend the whole day in bed
I donít care if it's rainy or blue
If this honest vow can somehow be heard
Then I love you and you have my word

Wunderful! Thanks for another memorable show in T Town. Irish Chris is a new Poltzie convert and enjoyed the opportunity to dance to Kilkenney Pub very mucho. Hope this Valentine's Day finds you not alone, and rich in love and roses and candy and stuff. Maybe like the DVD cover photo of American Beauty, eh? Later, gator!

Hey Steve-
Since you wrote this AWESOME song for Jason and I and our wedding this fall, we're still waiting to hear back from you with a definite answer on if you're coming to Iowa to sing it live and your associated cost with that. We'll be waiting on pins and needles for your response...

Kelly and Jason

I like the new song.

Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who stilled the water
Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who calmed the sea
Take a look at yourself
And you can look at others differently
Put your hand in the hand of the man
From Galilee

My momma taught me how to pray
Before I reached the age of seven
When I'm down on my knees
That's when I'm closest to heaven
Daddy lived his life, two kids and a wife
Well you do what you must do
But he showed me enough of what it takes
To get me through.

Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who stilled the water
Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who calmed the sea
Take a look at yourself
And you can look at others differently
Put your hand in the hand of the man
From Galilee

Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who stilled the water
Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who calmed the sea
Take a look at yourself
And you can look at others differently
Put your hand in the hand of the man
From Galilee

Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who stilled the water
Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who calmed the sea
Take a look at yourself
And you can look at others differently
Put your hand in the hand of the man
From Galilee
Put your hand in the hand of the man from Galilee
Put your hand in the hand of the man from Galilee
