Have You?

(Bob Nolan)

 

Darling, dont you know this trail we go

 Is enchanted, so they say?

In the woodland call and the waterfall

I have heard Gods voice.

Have you?

In this magic hour, you touched a flower

And a summer shower broke through.

Then I heard you say in the sweetest way,

I have touched His hand.

Have you?

 

        "Have You" survived on an unpublished tape recording of songs Bob Nolan sings, hums and whistles to the accompaniment of his own guitar, given to me by Roberta Nolan Mileusnich, in October/98.  Bob had an old home recording machine and he made his own wax demos on it. Many years later, his grandson rented a record player and transferred the old demos to tape. I remember years ago, soon after Bob died, that my mom went down to see P-Nuts and brought back a box of old 78s. These records were one-time studio recordings of songs that he wrote and never were recorded [commercially]. But we went out and got a 78 record player, needles - which were hard to find - and hooked it up to a cassette recorder and recorded all the records. As you can imagine the quality was very poor. A little curl of wax built up before the needle so the sound was virtually destroyed. (Calin Coburn, July 2, 2000)

        Bob's daughter, Roberta, registered it for copyright on September 24, 1985, five years after his death. There is no lead sheet or sheet music.
