I've always liked this song and felt moved to make this little arrangement today. A mixture of chords and campanella technique.

Campanella=good, as they might say. I was waiting for some tremolo picking for the falsetto parts. :)

Nice idea! Might add some of that! :)

Ah, that title is a variation on "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" in response to the killing of Cecil the lion in Africa. Very nice.

Agreed. And the back story to that song is equally sad.

Thanks for sharing that article, it was enlightening and very sad.




That song was a favorite when I was a child and probably the first song whose lyrics I learned.
