Get Together  3:43

I grew up hearing my older sisters and brothers sing and play. This was always one of my favorite songs in their repertoire. It was also a favorite of my brother Jerry who passed away several years ago. I dedicate the recording of this song to him. He was less involved in performing than the rest of us siblings, but he had exquisite taste in music. Thanks to all my sisters and brothers for their musical gifts, lessons, support, and patience with me over the years. They were my first and most important music teachers. They lit this flame, and I am proud to keep it burning.

Love is but a song we sing,
And fear's the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why

Come on people now
Smile on each other
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

Some will come and some will go
And we shall surely pass
When the one who left us hear
Returns for us at last
We are but a moment's sunrise
Fading in the grass

So if you hear the song I sing
Then you will understand
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both
It's there at your command
