A message to your heart

1981

words & music by Tom Jans, Alan Brackett.

"I have the recording with him singing it and then another with me singing after a small re-write.  I can't make up my mind which I like better.   But I really like Tom singing the original version.  Tom only wrote the second verse, and I wrote the rest before playing it for him.  That's how it happened.   Anyway, I wish someone would record it - it's a really good song. 

I miss Tom - I remember being up at Bud and Jeans - his parents place in Atascadero.  Tom was showing me one of his rifles and it went off right next to my head!  Luckily he was holding it correctly and the bullet went through the ceiling and up through the roof!  Scared the hell out of me.  I slept out in the tack-house and in the morning woke to the high pitched sound of "Hey, Al"    "Hey, Al".  It sounded like one of my friends on helium or something.  It was the first time I heard peacocks!"
