This Blame's All Mine

Updated: Sep 3

This song was done and rough demo tracked. Then Ritchie Havens died. He had signed a record for me some years earlier, “to a forever friend”. It resonated with me so that I changed one pre-chorus in homage.

How were you to know—when no one thought to say

This is how it’s done—here’s the rules of play

Though I’ll shoulder this today

I barely got away

Atop a hill—you didn’t climb

It’s not your place—it’s not your time

It’s not your rain—it’s not your shine

Just push on through—this blame’s all mine

Where are you to go—if no one paves the way?

Aimless and adrift—free and astray

A forever friend gone away

With still more left to say

Atop a hill—you didn’t climb

It’s not your place—it’s not your time

To burn a bridge—to cross a line

It’s not on you—this blames all mine

Though I shoulder this today

I fear you got away
