Over Yonder enunciates many of the thoughts and feelings I have had over the past few years about the end of life, at my age you think about such things more often!
It also addresses a lot of concepts and ideas about all that from others, especially organized religion about what death means and what happens afterwards.
To me, what happens after death is rather obvious! … and a lot of things that are said about it and what transpires are little more than fanciful nonsense.
When I first played the song to our musical director and bandmate Dave Chester he broke into gales of laughter at the ending … A song about a topic everyone wants to hear about Bob … he said … dying! A song to literally die for!
And I wonder why I don’t have more Listeners on Spotify.
Great piano playing on this track by a close friend of our band … Denis Keldie.
His touch here reminds me a lot of Floyd Kramer.
As I wrote this song I could hear Roebuck Pop Staples wailing away in my head.
