    So here's another I'm surprised hasn't already cropped up this week - this one by Nick Lowe:

    an original song for the season;
    guess it's a sorta meditation on the interwoven themes of
    isolation, loneliness, mortality, the search for meaning:
    hope deferred makes the heart sick



    SHORE (PROVERS 13:12)

    I'm standing on the shore like a bird without wings
    Grey skies up above,
    My soul is fixed on bigger things
    Than what my eyes can see from down here on the ground;
    Slithering like an eel between the lost and found

    Hope deferred makes the heart sick
    And I don't feel so good
    But I think I'd rather fail than keep on wishing that I could
    Hillary climbed a mountain and still he made it home
    Did he feel the way I feel standing all alone?

    My day will come
    One day I will rise up like the morning sun
    One day my day will come

    Jesus raised up Lazarus at his appointed time
    Fed five thousand people with a single fishing line
    I will hoist a sail on this shore from which I stare
    And try to find the reason Someone put me here

    My day will come
    One day I will rise up like the morning sun
    One day my day will come

    Shakespeare was a writer, Nero was a fiddler
    Ali was a fighter, Casanova was a diddler:
    My heroes have all gone to the sands of time
    Washed up on this shore around these feet of mine

    My day will come
    One day I will rise up like the morning sun
    And shed this skin
    The sea will wash me clean and I will fly into the flame
    One day my day will come

    Hello, Andy! This is my Nick Lowe submission - although, actually, Nick Lowe and Elvis Costello sung this together; so I hope it counts. I have been having the most awful trouble with YouTube today and I have a feeling the vid. might be a bit unsynchronized (for which I apologise); but, then, I HAVE been feeling rather unsynchronized today!

    I attended the legendary Three Day Mud Bath that was the Bickershaw Festival in North West England in May 1972. Wandering among the crowds was one Declan McManus - who would later go on to call himself Elvis Costello. Our experiences at this Festival were turning points in our lives.

    This is the tale of that meeting of stoned minds.

    Del... you have beaten me to it, again. LOL. Anyway, here is my version of Nick Lowe's 'Cruel to be kind'. Spend way too many hours on this but had such great fun with my new aNueNue solid electric concert ukulele.

    Our little acoustic trio Kitchen Kings has some Elvis Costello songs in its repertoire, among them New Amsterdam, that has already been done beautifully by Chelsea.

    Accidents will happen. Especially my vocals on the last chorus. I decided it's been too long since I used the Electro-Harmonix Mel9 box, so I used it here.

    Uke can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find uke get what you need!
