STAND TALL ~ Burton Cummings ~Song of the Day

Written by Burton Cummings of ” The Guess Who ” Released in 1976 as a Solo Artist.

Another Canadian giant like Neil Young whose songs and prolific lyrics defined a Generation. The Guess Who fit into that 60s dynamic splendidly. After 10 years as the Lead Singer and Keyboardist for The Guess Who 65-75, Cummings left to begin his solo career.

In 1976 Stand Tall scored at number 4 in Canada, 10 in the US.

Neil Young is in a league of his own in my opinion. But Cummings produced some pretty exceptional works in his own right.

Stand Tall

Never been this blue
Never knew the meaning of a heartache
But then again, I’ve never lost at love before

Somewhere down the road
Maybe all these years will find some meaning
I just can’t think about it now, or live ’em out anymore

Stand Tall, don’t you fall oh, don’t go and do something foolish
you’re feeling it like everyone, it’s silly human pride
Stand Tall, don’t you fall. donn’t go do something you’ll regret later
you’re feeling it like everyone, it’s silly human pride

Never lasted so long
Or through so much – or through so many
I just can’t believe you could throw it all away

Sometimes late at night
when there’s nothing here except my old piano
I’d almost give my hands to make you see my way

Stand Tall, don’t you fall oh, don’t go and do something foolish
you’re feeling it like everyone, it’s silly human pride;
You got me down on my knees for ya, mama
Stand Tall, don’t you fall. donn’t go do something you’ll regret later
you’re feeling it like everyone, it’s silly human pride

 

UNITY, It’s the Only Way. We have more Power than you envision.
