Tuesday Night Music Byte

This 1968 song by Dion just seems so appropriate this week Please listen, ponder and read the lyrics to “Abraham, Martin and John.”

“Abraham, Martin and John”

Has anybody here seen my old friend Abraham?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good they die young.
You know, I just looked around and he's gone.

Anybody here seen my old friend John?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good they die young.
I just looked around and he's gone.

Anybody here seen my old friend Martin?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good they die young.
I just looked 'round and he's gone.

Didn't you love the things that they stood for?
Didn't they try to find some good for you and me?
And we'll be free
Some day soon, and it's a-gonna be one day ...

Anybody here seen my old friend Bobby?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
I thought I saw him walkin' up over the hill,
With Abraham, Martin and John.

    Timely choice, this lovely song. Thank you for sharing.

    I suspect you always have a song in your heart and on your mind, much like I do. I’m very fond of your parodies, and often sing along, with feeling, right out loud.

    Still waiting for the world to burst into song and dance in my vicinity someday! :)
    Too many musicals in my childhood? Maybe, but I’m ok with that.
