About two weeks ago I posted a rough version of "The Perch." As I previously stated, I was so impressed with the fact that everyone would meet there at all times of the day or night, it inspired me to write and record this song about the Perch and the very special people who inhabit it from time to time. I wanted to name a bunch of people in this description but realized that there were far too many for me to thank so please accept this song as a "THANK YOU" to all the wonderful people that Nancy and I met at the Perch. I want to thank the JOHN WAYNE ALAMO website (http://www.johnwayne-thealamo.com) and all the folks who posted some of the photos I used to fill in some spaces and Phil Gallo from DEZ MANKU for some fine guitar work and sweetening. This song is dedicated to a good friend from the Jersey days, JoAnn Lovas.
Here are the lyrics of the song: THE PERCH
It's a place where we come to sit and rest our weary bones. Some came from far across the sea five thousand miles from home (Thanks Ned) We share a common interest and we never have to search Because we end each day with the words we say, "I'll meet you at The Perch."
CHORUS: And so it goes, rain or snow, we sit and dream of years ago When some men gave up their lives in this crumbling church And if you look you'll see them all, as they wait behind the wall And they haunt the very earth of The Perch
We sit where fallen heroes live in every stone around And it doesn't matter where we go as we move around the town We all hang tight together friends won't leave you in a lurch And we think of Crockett fighting on while sitting in The Perch ...CHORUS
As the day winds down you still can find us sitting there Through rain and wind, from dawn till dusk, with the stories that we share We'll never forget just why we're here as we stare at that famous church So bow your head, wipe that tear and meet me at The Perch...CHORUS
