about

Song Notes:
John Crawford's March was written in the summer of 2014 following the death of John Crawford in Beavercreek, Ohio.

Series Notes:
All the "Home Sessions (Raw Singles)" series of recordings follow the parameters of making live music. Each song is performed and recorded live, in one take. Sometimes other musicians join in on the song, sometimes Daniel plays and sings alone. Either way, there is only a single track, no doubling up, no layering.

Track Name: John Crawford's March
Now some of us we pray things, and others we just say things, and most of us don't do anything while the fire rains down upon our heads

Now it's a black and white thing, and it's a wrong and right thing, and that man didn't do anything wrong and the fire rained down on his head

There's no need to take him down and put him in the ground
All he ever wanted was to go back to his family
There's no need to take him down and put him in the ground
All he ever wanted was to go back home

Now the world it has its liars, and the world it has its criers, and sometime they make up the rules and the fire's gonna rain down on their heads

Silence isn't just silence, when it turns to violence, and we ain't gonna be quiet, and the fire's gonna rain down on your head

There's no need to take him down and put him in the ground
All he ever wanted was to go back to his family
There's no need to take him down and put him in the ground
All he ever wanted was to go back home

There's no need to take him down and put him in the ground
All he ever wanted was to go back to his family
There's no need to take him down and put him in the ground
All he ever wanted was to go back home
All he ever wanted was to go back home
All he ever wanted was to go back home
