Song For Today # 27

This song came to mind yesterday. It seems more and more relevant as the days go by. It’s written by Spirit’s lead guitarist, Randy California. Other songs of his indicate a sensitivity to a world beyond the materialistic and a desire to be guided by a higher power. The song appears on Spirit’s 1970 album, ‘The Twelve Dreams of Doctor Sardonicus.’ If you’re into rock music, give the album a listen. They are a band from the late 60’s and early 70’s who didn’t achieve the superstar status of some other bands, but their music has stood the test of time.

Here’s a live version with Randy California on guitar and vocal, Ed Cassidy on drums and Mike Nile on bass. It’s a beatiful version with an exquisite harmony vocal and a brief example of Randy California’s understated lead guitar playing.

Nature’s Way

It’s nature’s way of telling you something’s wrong
It’s nature’s way of telling you in a song
It’s nature’s way of receiving you
It’s nature’s way of retrieving you
It’s nature’s way of telling you something’s wrong

It’s nature’s way of telling you, it’s in the breeze
It’s nature’s way of telling you, dying trees
It’s nature’s way of receiving you
It’s nature’s way of retrieving you
It’s nature’s way of telling you something’s wrong

It’s nature’s way, it’s nature’s way
It’s nature’s way, it’s nature’s way

It’s nature’s way of telling you something’s wrong
It’s nature’s way of telling you in a song, oh
It’s nature’s way of receiving you (it’s nature’s way)
It’s nature’s way of retrieving you (it’s nature’s way)
It’s nature’s way of telling you something’s wrong
Something’s wrong
Something’s wrong

Grace and Peace.
