Bring Someone Else Along  by Tim Seston

Intro                                                                               DGAD

Time and again, we are strong                                GD
Arms and legs and mind and love and song        AD
Step to the beat of your heart                                    G
Then go back to the start                                           D
And bring someone else along                               AD
Bring someone else along                                       AD

The floor might creek beneath                                 G
The wind might start to blow                                     D
The dog might bare its teeth                                     A
The crowd might be to slow                                      D

Time and again, we are strong                               GD
Arms and legs and mind and love and song       AD
Step to the beat of your heart                                   G
Then go back to the start                                          D
And bring someone else along                              AD
Bring someone else along                                     AD

It’s Monday morning, you sit at home                   GD
And let it all soak in                                                   AD
Onward says that voice inside                               GD
But remember where you’ve been                        AD

Time and again, we are strong                             GD
Arms and legs and mind and love and song      AD
Step to the beat of your heart                                  G
Then go back to the start                                         D
And bring someone else along                             AD
Bring someone else along                                    AD

The path is filled with hope                                    G
Our roots grow long and deep                              D
Grab hold there’s lots more rope                         A
That cliff is not too steep                                        D

Time and again, we are strong                            GD
Arms and legs and mind and love and song    AD
Step to the beat of your heart                                G
Then go back to the start                                       D
And bring someone else along                           AD
Bring someone else along                                   AD
Bring Someone Else Along
Playing Together
Children’s Music Network Conference in Los Gatos, Oct 2016, Melanie
DeMore shared the story of collective struggle.  With community sticks,
hand-made by a chorus she had directed, she sang and danced in the
style of people who had been enslaved.  At the end of her song, she
placed one of the sticks in front of her and said that no matter how hard
it must be, take that leap of faith and step across.  But, when you have
reached a better place, your journey does not end.  Instead, go back and
bring someone else along.

I met John, Yvonne and their 5 girls at KindieCOMM in 2016.  The
week before the CMN conference in Los Gatos, John put out a call for
us all to submit songs for a compilation album he was making to support
the victims of Hurricane Matthew that had just devastated Haiti.  I was
pleased to have him include this song on the album.

You can listen to "Singing Through the Storm" and learn more about
many other wonderful artists that contributed to the album.
