BROTHER JOHN

YOU WERE MY BROTHER
YOU WERE MY FRIEND
I WAS THERE AT THE BEGINNING
I WAS THERE AT THE END

BROTHER JOHN, WHERE HAVE YOU GONE
LIFE IS LONELY WITHOUT YOU
YOU WERE THE SUN THAT SHINED ON EVERYONE
I KEEP THINKING ABOUT YOU

SO MANY THINGS LEFT UNDONE
IT'S SUCH A SHAME
YOU BELIEVED IN TOMORROW
BUT TOMORROW NEVER CAME

YOU WERE A DREAMER
WITH A BEAUTIFUL SOUL
LOVE WAS YOUR MESSAGE
PEACE WAS YOUR GOAL

BROTHER JOHN, WHERE HAVE YOU GONE
LIFE IS LONELY WITHOUT YOU
YOU WERE THE SUN THAT SHINED ON EVERYONE
I KEEP THINKING ABOUT YOU

SO MANY THINGS LEFT UNDONE
IT'S SUCH A SHAME
YOU BELIEVED IN TOMORROW
BUT TOMORROW NEVER CAME

BROTHER JOHN, WHERE HAVE YOU GONE
LIFE IS LONELY WITHOUT YOU
YOU WERE THE SUN THAT SHINED ON EVERYONE
I KEEP THINKING ABOUT YOU

(c)2007 Richard Scotti

Hugo's Thank You Station
Mr. Scotti seems to be truly unique among members of this sonic community in that he produces his tunes professionally and refrains from singing...


All The Best

PHIFTY PHLEGM PHAVORITES
Yup. He IS the patron saint of Rock & ROLL & The whole hippie movement. LIVED his ideals, to the best of his ability, mistakes & all, 'til his tragic murder. I LOVE this tune RICHARD. john lennon is my FAVORITE beatle & top 5 of ALL TIME ROCK/Activist Idols to ME and SO many others. DAMN, we could use a JOHN LENNON right about now. We've got another goddamn vietnam, and it's not gonna END any time soon...Rock ON mr. scotti

Soul Retrieval
Oh My! I opened your page and the plan was to have a listen until I heard something I liked, something that would fit with Soul Retrieval station. I was not expecting the first song to grab me so hard around my heart. This song, I dedicate to my brother, my lover, my son, to all of those that I have lost along the way, through this life. It's the passion in your voice when you sing this song with such soulfelt love and grief. xo
