Mother & Child Reunion

bear

Strombo interviewed them yesterday. How can you not like these two?
You gotta be: Happy that they’re mother and son. Happy that some say they’re the most ‘in demand new group on the planet’. Happy that they’re enjoying the ride. Happy that they’re keeping it real.
They have a great story (see some of their story here) and maybe, just maybe, their strong suit is song writing…..the presentation and the story in the song. That’s what I like about them. Their story and their songs’ stories. And they do good covers, making them their own. They can come play on my front porch anytime.
Now this I what I’m talkin’ about (baby) – Cover of Fleetwood Mac’s Dreams from SiriusXM
Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear

MW & MB – Yellow Taxi
Yt post by Sunday Sessions (from good ole Dublin) – 2015

Dreams – Fleetwood Mac (from Chordie) – the Wards keep it simple playing E:m, D, C (shapes) most the way through. They use a capo choked up to G#m.
FM’s version

Fmaj G/C
Now here you go again

Fmaj G/C
You say you want your free dom

Fmaj G/C
Well who am I to keep you down

Its only right that you should

Play the way you feel it

But listen carefully to the sound

Of your loneliness

Like a heartbeat.. drives you mad

In the stillness of remembering what you had

And what you lost…

And what you had…

And what you lost

Chorus:

Am G/C Fmaj
Thunder only happens when its rain ing

Am G/C Fmaj
Players onl y love you when they re playing

Say… women… they will come and they wil l go

Verse: Fmaj & G/C repeated

Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions

I keep my visions to myself

Its only me

Who wants to wrap around your dreams and…

Have you any dreams youd like to sell?

Dreams of loneliness…

Like a heartbeat… drives you mad…

In the stillness of remembering what you had…

And what you lost…

And what you had…

And what you lost

Chorus:

Am G/C Fmaj
Thunder only happens when its rain ing

Am G/C Fmaj
Players onl y love you when they re playing

Am G/C Fmaj
Say… women… they will come and they wil l go

Am G/C Fmaj
When the rain was hes you clean you’ll know… you’ll know
