Gordon's Farewell

1996 Gordon Bok, BMI

 

This is my farewell to a house I sold which had been in my family for four generations. At a 'musical' there one night I walked around outside watching friends making music through the windows and thought: "There's enough music in those timbers by now to sing to future occupants for another hundred years." Bruce Boege thinks he hears a bit of How High the Moon in the "A" part. (So do I.)

Gordon's Farewell is recorded on the album Gatherings and is also in the songbook One to Sing, One to Haul
