Welcome

In honor of our dearly beloved friend, Dr Sal Caputo, who passed away Sunday, August 6, 2017, I wrote this song and sang it at his funeral. I will have the recorded version up on my site as soon as is practical. Sal will always be in our minds and hearts.

 

The Gentle Giant

 

The Gentle Giant was a friend of mine

When he rode into town

All the people laughed and sang

When he was around

 

A selfless man he was for sure

Healing all who came

A loving father and husband too

He will always remain

 

He’s resting in a better place

With the good Lord by his side

We shed a tear and mourn for him

A never ending changing tide

 

The Gentle Giant was a friend of mine

When he rode into town

All the people laughed and sang

When he was around

 

-He’s around

 

-He’ll always be around…

    Six of us were sitting around the dining room table, listening to your samples on my laptop. The majority, including 96 yr old Aunt Connie, voted My Baby Still Loves Me as their #1 favorite. Aunt Connie kept saying, "I like the 4/4 beat." I have no idea if she's right, but that's what she said.
