“My Old Friend”

[audio href=’https://russtowne.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/my-old-friend-final-mix.mp3′>My Old Friend-Final Mix<a

I mentioned earlier that I was going to more consistently write songs from my heart instead of focusing on a market or industry norms. "My Old Friend" is from my heart, and is my tribute to the special bond that many people have with their dogs, and to the bond shared by my old friend Duke and I.

I wrote the lyric. Kevin Harris created and played the music and was the vocalist.

I hope it resonates with you. The link at the beginning of this post will hopefully take you to the song if I set it up correctly.

    I love this song! Thank you so much for sharing it, and warming the hearts of dog-lovers far and wide. You have put into words (and beautiful music) the truths of our love for our canine companions, and their devotion to us. Beautifully done! Gina

    Reblogged this on A Grateful Man and commented:

    I have been ill with the flu or food poisoning. My Beloved took great care of me, and my dog Duke stayed and laid by my side. His devoton reminded me of a song I’d written to honor him and all humans and dogs who share a bond of love.
    With love,
