Singing Just For FriendsPDF
Words and Music by Joe LaMay

Dulcimers in harmony
Old six-string guitars
Voices echo through the trees
And on up to the stars

Sun comes up - sun goes down
Some days never end
Summer nights on the old canal
Singing just for friends

Find the chords and wind your way
Through old familiar keys
Sing the songs of long ago
On the EE-RI-EE


Yellow moon - silver clouds
Candles on the sill
Fiddlers warming up their bows
Playing “Saint Anne’s Reel"


Everybody here tonight
Has a song to share
Melodies that warm the heart
Lilting through the air


Round and round the music goes
Back and forth in rhyme
Stories told of yesterdays
And of golden times


Boats go drifting up and down
Along the waterway
Pickers weave their lyric lines
Into another day
