Schwa Lyrics

Anthony's Song

Lyricist: Dave Katz
Vocalist: Dave Katz
He was born and bred in an Ohio town, 
In a little log house in the trees.
His folks worked hard so they wouldn't let him down,
he lived for the day he could leave....
Anthony Walker was the name given him, 
and his manner was misunderstood.
A lover of nature, he played violin
to the creatures who lived in the woods.
In a fiddler's way he explained to them all: 
"The people don't see what I see."
It was a red-winged blackbird who answered his call, 
and he seemed to be saying "Follow me."

And the red-winged blackbird he took off in flight, 
and Anthony tried just to keep it in sight.
He yelled to the blackbird "please take me with you, 
I want to fly free through the sky like you do!"

And the blackbird said "don't be a fool, I'd like to be like you too, 
but I'll never be just like you, and you'll never be just like me."
Well he lived his whole life in that Ohio town, 
in a little log house in the trees.
And he always remembered that red-winged blackbird, 
who showed him the way to be free.
Anthony Walker was the name given him,
and he's no longer misunderstood.
A lover of nature he played violin,
to the creatures who lived in the woods...
