We just finished recording a new song for our next album. The tune’s called “Over Yonder & Round The Bend.” I feel great about how it came out, and hope you’ll give a listen. The audio’s below. Lyrics, too.

 

OVER YONDER & ROUND THE BEND

CHORUS:

OVER YONDER AND ROUND THE BEND

I ONCE WENT THERE; I CAN’T SAY WHEN

SOME BRIGHT MORNING I’MA GO AGAIN

OVER YONDER AND ROUND THE BEND

 

IT WAS ON BEYOND THE FIELDS I KNEW

THICK MEADOWS AND TALL OAKS GREW

BENEATH A GOLD SUN THAT CAST ITS LIGHT

AND MADE WAY THEN FOR SUMMER NIGHT

 

(CHORUS)

 

BENEATH A PALE MOON FOLKS DANCED TILL DAWN

THEY SANG AND LAUGHED AND CARRIED ON

AND MET THE DAYBREAK WITH A SMILING FACE

AND LOVED EACH OTHER IN THAT FAR PLACE

 

(CHORUS)

 

ALL THE PEOPLE THERE THEY WORKED TOGETHER

TO BUILD THEIR LAND AND LIFT EACH OTHER

EVERYONE WAS FREE, FREE AT LAST

GOOD WITH THE FUTURE GOOD WITH THE PAST

 

(CHORUS)

 

YOU CAN SAY IT WAS ALL A DREAM

OR JUST SOME TRICKSTER’S LOWDOWN SCHEME

BUT I DO KNOW WHAT I KNOW

AND I KNOW WHERE I WANNA GO

 

(CHORUS)

I wrote the song and am on guitar and vocals. Andrew MacCrimmon is on drums,  Gus Friedlander’s on banjo, and Dorothy McDaniel’s singing harmony. I recorded most of the tracks on Garage Band, and Robert Marshall mixed and mastered them at The Cave Recording in Evanston, Illinois.
