July 4th “Freedom to Get Funky”

I guess July 4th is a day that warrants it’s own song.  I don’t feel inclined on all holidays to mark it with a song with my song a day project.   This last year however, I basically listened to every biography of every founding father.  It’s pretty interesting, they signed the declaration of independence in 1776 but it really didn’t kick in for years.  Even when Andrew Jackson came along forty years later, it was a daily struggle to keep it together.   It makes you realize how far we’ve come in just a few hundred years and how fragile it really is.

I’m heading to perform on a boat dock on beautiful Lake Rabun before the fireworks start.  Have a great day!
