Soldier of Love

Lay down your arms (Soldier of Love)
and surrender to me
Lay down your arms (Soldier of Love)
and love me peacefully ..... Yea
Use your arms for lovin' me
Baby that's the way it's gotta be

There ain't no reason for you to declare
War on the one that loves you so
So forget the other boys
Cause' my love is real
Come off your battle field

Lay down your arms (Soldier of Love)
and just surrender to me
Lay down your arms (Soldier of Love)
and love me tenderly
Use your arms to hold me tight
Baby I don't wanna fight no more

The weapons your using are hurting me bad
And someday your gonna see
That my love for you baby
is the truest you've ever had
A soldier of love is hard to beat

So Lay down your arms (Soldier of Love)
and surrender to me
Lay down your arms (Soldier of Love)
and love me tenderly
Use your arms to please and squeeze
cause I'm the one that loves you so

(Soldier of Love...)

Lay down your arms ..... Lay down your arms
I said a lay down your arms baby
Come on ..... Come on ..... Yea
Baby, I don't wanna fight ___ No more

This week I offer an obscure cover tune (meaning that I didn't write it) as part of our music give-a-way. Although this is NOT a Pagan tune it was recorded during the sessions for my "Celtic Feast of the Dead" CD. I have always loved the 'attitude' in this song and am proud to offer my humble rendition here.

As detailed in last week's release of "Be Well"... I suffered a serious stroke during the process of making CFOTD (see story & tune). When the stroke hit me I couldn't speak normally. This was most devastating, especially in that I had worked up a few tunes and *was* planning on doing some vocal tracks that coming weekend. As the "Be Well" story goes, I was miraculously healed in less than ten days time.

The tune that I was preparing to do vocal tracks for was a tune recorded by Authur Alexander (the same guy that did "Anna"). It is a simple pop tune, written in the 50's and one that has been covered by many artists over the years. Thanks to my many friends in the craft, I was absolutely thrilled that I could, not only speak again but could sing as well.

Tune History: This tune has been covered by many artists and was one of the tunes that the Beatles used to 'cover' in their bar days long before they ruled the world (check out the Beatles at the BBC CD). Marshall Crenshaw also covered it on his first release.

Recorded: January 1995 at MiceTrax Digital Magick Recording studio in Boston, Mass. This is one of the rare tunes from these sessions that actually does have some "fuzzy guitar" on it. Drums were programmed by yours truly on the now famous Alesis hr16 drum machine. Bass was an Ibanez RB-850 and the guitar was a Hohner "Steinberger" copy played through a Scholtz RockMan headphone box.
