The Apache demo

hi folks. Here's a new one co-written by Floyd Jane who also did the demo. We hope you like it. :)

The Apache ©2015 Floyd Jane/Robert George BMI

I saw him in a Phoenix tavern, sittin’ in a corner booth
Eagle feathers in his hat-brim, he sipped Grey Goose and vermouth
That Apache was a hundred if he was a day
His knuckles like pine-knots, age had bleached his black hair grey

I finished up my first set, put my guitar aside
Struck up a conversation, bought a round…had a bite
We talked of current events, shifting standards…changing times
I said it sometimes feels like, our great nation’s in decline

His wrinkles were a road map, through seasons made of tears
He squinted as he whispered, as if time might overhear
He said, “Ev’ry soul and nation, blossoms as it grows
Then its petals fade and wither, till they’re lost beneath the snow

Both kingdoms and men
Go from dust to flesh and then dust again
Ev’ry castle crumbles, ev’ry oak must fall
Time is a traitor and sooner or later winter finds us all”

He said, “All that we can hope for, Is to leave a tiny mark
Some do it with swords…some with money, dreamers do it with art”
I picked up my old Gibson, started on my second set
He looked ghostly sittin’ in the corner, like he was history’s silhouette

Cos for him the song was over, while mine was just leavin’ Spring
Even now I think of what he told me, ev’ry time I write or sing

Both kingdoms and men
Go from dust to flesh and then dust again
Ev’ry castle crumbles, ev’ry oak must fall
Time is a traitor and sooner or later winter finds us all

Both kingdoms and men
Go from dust to flesh and then dust again
Ev’ry castle crumbles, ev’ry oak must fall
Time is a traitor and sooner or later winter finds us all”

Even now I think of what he told me
Ev’ry time I sit and dream…
