Upsy Daisy Angel *Free Download*
This is the first song on the new studio project. It was written in the summer of 1975 when I was junior in HS. I have never recorded it and perhaps played it live less than a handful of times. The song is based on a true story. We were camping in South Jersey with our little church group while attending Bill Gothard's Basic Youth Conflicts. (A cultish "bible" application course with much error and poor exegesis)
While setting up the campsite, someone noted the pastor's 3 year old son staring up at the trees and saying "uppity daisy uppity daisy" with his hands stretched over his head. The story emerged that perhaps the little guy saw an angel and we were all filled with awe and amazement. (It didn't take a lot in those days to get us going) As a matter of fact, we thought Jesus was returning before we graduated high school based on the landmark theological treatise: Late Great Planet Earth. Ah, good times, good times...
I thought it would be a nice tune for the new project. Let me know what you think.
