about

The absolute highlight of my career as a musician and songwriter. Having my father along side me in the studio. Thank-you for the fiddle playing Mr. Bert. Sadly this was our only chance to record together. I lost him in 2014. This session was magical indeed. Oh how his eyes lit up when he saw the studio. Sitting in the control room with Sid Perez and watching the master behind the glass. God bless that man. God bless the Irish. A toast to the fiddle player who plays for the master now .. and left this for us .. xoRJ

lyrics

Oh - her name is Cora Grey
And her folks live over yonder
I've walked her home from school every day since I was ten
Every time I see her mother
I ask after Cora -
Is there any news of my friend ..

She left one sunny day
To live with friends in Ireland
We traded our good-byes as the train came 'round the bend
Many nights I've pined
Thinking of my Cora
Waiting on some news from my friend ..

We'd walk from here to the end of the pier
And watch the tide go out
And ever since the age of ten she's all I've thought about

When I saw her mom today
She kissed me on the cheek and said
"Today Cora Grey's coming home .."

Now I'm rushing home from work
To find my fanciest attire
I plan to go a'callin' on a lady friend I know
She'll be waiting at the station
'Cause the folks are all at my house
Today Cora Grey's coming home ..

We'd walk from here to the end of the pier
And watch the tide go out
And ever since the age of ten she's all I've thought about

When I saw her mom today
She kissed me on the cheek and said
"Today Cora Grey's coming home .."

We'd walk from here to the end of the pier
And watch the tide go out
And ever since the age of ten she's all I've thought about

When I saw her mom today
She kissed me on the cheek and said
"Today Cora Grey's coming home .."

Ah .. today Cora Grey's coming home ..
Yes .. today Cora Grey's coming home ..
Aaah ...

Robert James Wetaskiwin, Alberta

Currently calling Wetaskiwin, Canada home, Robert has just released his 4th CD, "Satyr's Day Parade". Saturn's a bit of a taskmaster and the upcoming release "Kizza Me Now" is moving along at breakneck speed. The rough mixes are changing as he prepares the songs for a live setting. Although the upcoming release is a ten song affair, all the songs will get a make-over. Make-over .. mix-over. xoRJ ... more
