the names and addresses of them and then did something with the computer that made the screen go funny when they were talking.

“Now go get your guitar and we are going to record your voice; I want you to hear what you sound like.’

“Bobby brought in the guitar he checked to make sure it was in tune then when Martine counted him in he began to sing.

She kept silent until he’d finished then stopped the recording.

Then she played it back to him.’

“Do I really sound like that?’

“Yes you do, look I can add other instruments in here as well so how about some fiddles playing and maybe a banjo too. Tapping the data into the computer the screen went crazy for three minutes or so then it said that it was ready to play back. Martine played the tune back again and this time it sounded better again.

“With a few harmony’s in there and you’ll be laughing, do you want to try it.’

“Lookin’ for Yesterday”


I held her hand I opened a door

 I don’t do that any more

The man I was changed over time

 The woman I loved was no longer mine

Now she sits looking down at her ring

Wishing he was the man he was again


The day we met you blew my world apart

 But I just couldn’t stop my cheatin’ heart

You changed my life, the way I used to be

Cause now it’s only you I see

I love you darlin’ don’t you be this way

I can’t live without you a single day


The pain I caused you I feel sorry for

I knew it when you went and slammed that door

Can you forgive the pain I put through?

Forgive me darlin’ I just never knew

How much you loved me, now I’m feelin’ blue



Lookin’ for yesterday

That smile you gave me every single day

The day you left my world came falling in

Come back honey let me try again

I’ll quit the drinkin’ and my cheatin’ ways

I’ll do anything you want please say you’ll stay

You know I love you darlin’ can’t you see
