about

This is an old/crappy recording, yet one of the best written songs I've been lucky enough to perform with my old band, "Impulse". My step-brother, Bobby (Robert Crosley, aka "Boppy-Bob-Bobberson) wrote the words, in honor of his grandparents and they are probably some of the best lyrics/most poignant I've had the pleasure of singing. My brother, Chris wrote the music and holy-crap..the bridge coming out of the lead still gives me chills.

lyrics

Grand People
(Music by Chris Livingston, Lyrics by Robert Crosley; Performance by Impulse- Copyright 1994)
Verse-1:
It was just the other day..6 years ago
When the old man blinked out in an old-folk’s hole
Couldn’t stand not to cuss or be a big pest
So he closed his good eye and emptied his chest…for the very last time


Chorus:
Grand People
Grand People, indeed
Grand People
Grand People you’re free

Verse-2:
She ignored all the “no’s” and force-fed you food
She could point you straight to hell, without being rude
Feelin’ ok..she was coming home soon
Still I wonder just why, she never left that room? (In the same old-folk’s hole)

Chorus:
Grand People
Grand People, indeed
Grand People
Grand People you’re free

Bridge:
Forgive the sap…it’s not meant for you
I never try and act the way I always do
These Grand People are mine, but I’m not alone
Make sure and hug them before their names are in stone

Lead break/Bridge/Chorus
