      Gonna Rise Up dedicated to Clarence Gatemouth Brown, one of the greatest musician/artists to ever grace the shores of this land called America, whose death at the age of 81, shortly after evacuating his home in New Orleans, is thought to have largely been from heartbreak in the wake of the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina to his beloved city; and to Antoine Fats Domino, American Bourbon Street treasure, who was lost and is now found.  Capitol Offense and All We Can Do Is Pray inspired by Mass Murderers in High Places.  Gone With the Wind loosely based on works by Woody Guthrie, Margaret Mitchell, John Steinbeck, Bob Dylan and Isaiah, prophet of Peace and Goodwill.  Tennessee Waltz ‘Em inspired by Nashville, Tennessee's Capitol Gang of Heathen Shame; "I will give children to be their princes and babes shall rule over them" -Isaiah 3:4.  What We Overcome based on the life of Charles Munro, early 20th Century United States immigrant from Aberdeen, Scotland.

       Down Home Comfort inspired by Orlando Ward of Midnight Mission; Los Angeles, California and Los Angeles Times reporter and friend of the forgotten children of Skid Row, Steve Lopez; dedicated to Operation Stand Down; Nashville, Tennessee.  Montgomery inspired by Rosa Parks, Jo Ann Robinson and Martin Luther King, Jr.; also inspired by "At The Rhyman" with Emmylou Harris and the Nash Ramblers, third line of chorus from a speech by Nashville artist/songwriter Bill Flowerree -“And the lord was sorry that he had made man on the earth and he was grieved in his heart” –Genesis 6:6 (NKJV).  Local Man inspired by the late Al Sophier, truck driver and dispatcher, Gallo Wine Company; City of Commerce, California; based on an article by Washtington Post staff writer Peter Carlson.  Big Bang inspired by MENSA: Mental-midgets of Evolution's Natural Selection Advance.  Liberty Mountain dedicated to Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass, perhaps the two bravest individuals in the history of the United States; based on the collected speeches of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Meditation XVII, by Welsh/English poet John Donne: “. . .that they may be one just as we are one. . .” –-Jesus of Nazareth; founder of Human and Civil Rights.

       Pete's Song based on lyrics from the following songs performed by Pete Seeger:  "Where Have All The Flowers Gone?" by Pete Seeger (1961); "Lonesome Valley", traditional; "If I Had A Hammer" by Lee Hays & Pete Seeger (1949); "This Land Is Your Land" by Woody Guthrie (1956); “Gates of Eden” by Bob Dylan (1965); "Turn, Turn, Turn" adapted from Ecclesiastes by Pete Seeger (1954); “We Shall Overcome” adapted by Pete Seeger from “I Will Overcome”, traditional and "Lonesome Valley", traditional--and as performed by Joan Baez, “Swing Lo, Sweet Chariot”, traditional--also based on titles of song collections:  "Sing Out" (1996) "Seeds: Pete Seeger and Friends" (2003) and "Link In The Chain" (1996) and on the Vision of Isaiah, prophet of peace; you can bet neo-convict's malfeasant collective asses, we ain’t gonna study war no more (“Swing Low”).

       Hard Times (excerpt) by Stephen Foster; (1854-public domain) originally entitled "Hard Times Come Again No More").  Amazing Grace Revisited based on "Amazing Grace" by John Newton; (1779-public domain) originally entitled "Faith's Review and Expectation").  Lyrics for songs not noted above:  Told You So, It Don’t Rock Like Elvis, No Peace On Earth Tonight, Feel Like Jesse James, Duck About You and Where the Tracks Used to Be.
