Wow, you talk about production capacity to go with an incredible set of pipes. Allan Truesdell has finished the final cut on this one that started as, "Silent Cries of Pain"......and it rocks!

Please take a listen and let us know what you think. http://www.soundclick.com/bands/allantruesdell_music.htm

18 Years (c)

He has not left these cold, block walls
since nineteen, eighty-three;
doing the time for another's crime
and mistaken identify.

(Bridge)
Forensic science has improved.
DNA has shown the way.
At last they know, and they're letting him go
at 12:00 o'clock today.

(CHORUS)
Eighteen years without the sunshine.
Eighteen years without the rain.
Eighteen years of salty tears
and his silent cries of pain.....

The warden watches from his window
as the man shuffles through the gate.
He could sue the state for millions
and surely win his case.

But the warden has statistics
to shield him from this fear.
A souless husk, climbs on the bus
and he'll be dead within the year.

(CHORUS/END)
Eighteen years without the sunshine.
Eighteen years without the rain.
Eighteen long years of salty tears
and his silent cries of pain.....
silent cries of pain.

Thank you Chuck,

Allan is an impressive guy who knows how to put out a polished product. Hard to believe a grayhaired ol' fart like me has a lyric at number 6 on the rock charts and climbing.

Thanks for the read and the listen.

Why thank you Kaley,

aren't you nice. However, I do need to clear up a possible misconception here. Allan I collaborated on this song, "18 Years", which, knock on my wooden head, is at number 2 on the sounclick rock chart today.

On the Acoustic/Folk chart, "Washed Up"; a song Allan wrote both the music and lyrics for, is at number three.

You might also want to go to the lyric board and check out his latest colab with Anthony.
"Too Young To Be So Old".

The man is a terrific talent.

Wow, thanks a whole bunch for the support everybody! We really appreciate the listens.

Joe Kaboom and GJ: I don't believe we've met before. I look forward to gettin' to know ya.

The ol battle on the rock charts will heat up I'm sure. Alien Ant Farm and Sister Hazel are major label acts and Aunt Stella has a heck of a following.

We sure would appreciate ya'll streaming the song(s) everyday that you can. We're also trying to get people to leave messages on the message board. It shows up in the community section which may cause more people to listen in.

Dawg: Your too kind. I just dream this stuff and then play it.

Once again, THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!!!!!!!!

Allan

Thank you kindly Bill Draper,

I don't think you could scrub the grins off of either Allen's face or mine with a whole can of Ajax and a Brillo pad.<g>

Many thanks to all of our friends who made this possible.

very cool guys...well produced!

I like it. Allan sounds like a cross between Harry Chapin and Meatloaf to me. Both some of my favorite male singers...

Can I come to the party in june? [Linked Image]

Kenna,

Of course you can, and you will be more than welcome. We have a friend in Memphis who drove up last weekend and it took her two hours exactly. (Wxit 172 off 40 east). I will have Bobbie send you all the info. See the notice on the Lyric Board (prolly page 3 by now) for a list of folks who want to perform. Can I put you down to do a few numbers on the porch?

Thank you for taking the time to listen and respond.

dawg

PS....folks the party is open to all, repeat all, JPF members.
