You're All Right

You're All Right

Liner Notes: 

I wrote and recorded this in about 15 minutes - finally had time to share it now.
I saw Corinne's Sunday Skirmish prompt, got in the car, and came up with the words and tune. When I got to my yoga studio/office I recorded it on the phone, tapping on a table for some percussion.
Great prompt! This is indeed what I've been telling myself lately.


You are a warrior for what’s righteous
You got your dharma to do
You got angels and you got saints
a-watching over you

You’re all right, you’re all right
after the darkness there is light
You’re all right, you’re all right
that’s what I tell myself over and over again
You’re all right, you’re all right

You cannot predict the future
you can’t dwell upon the past
Why waste your precious time a-worrying
You’re 54 now, it all went by so fast

You’re all right …
Sometimes you pray, sometimes you fight

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

You ARE alright! Great little ditty!

The table percussion has a marching feel which is perfect for your song. Very convincing delivery of the self confident lyric. Extra points for a fine sense of timing.

what a great recording of an uplifting slice of life- this is really like a wonderful personal mantra and we're right there with you, table thumping and everything!
54? you're alright... and still younger then me! Smile

Sounds like a song to yourself. I keep seeing an optimistic viewpoint in these skirmish songs and this is no exception. I like your simple demo, too. A beat and a confident vocal and here you go. A good go at the skirmish, for sure.

I like the simplicity. Much more and it would've lost its directness and power.
And what a simple, powerful mantra. I need to remember this for sure.

What a daily affirmation!
