April

(Bob Nolan)

 

I woke up at dawn and April  softly stole into my room

And spoke your name

And the whole world turned to April  in that moment.

You were with me, then you were gone.

Now the long years into shadows hide

And April ís not the same as we once knew.

And the long ago canít live again

Nor April  dressed in glory ever return.

Itís a long way back to April, Darling,

Where the winds of time still call to me.

So, if you return to April,

Someday, this I promise ~

Somehow, I will be there.

 

 

 

"April" is one of Bob Nolan's later songs and was registered for copyright on December 5, 1972. He told Ken Griffis that now he was writing only for his own satisfaction and filing the songs away to, in Bob's words, "await the time when conditions are right for them to be released." This song was never commercially recorded.

 

We sent the lead sheets to Dave Bourne in 2001 and asked him to make a demo for us, exactly as it was written, and that is what you are listening to as you read this.
