    not sure if you know Patty Larkin. Excellent artist. You may really like her stuff - mostly acoustic.

    From her "red = luck" lp .. I couldn't find a video or an audio clip, but her song "Children" fits the theme tonight...

    Children

    by Patty Larkin
    I remember walking with holes in our shoes
    I remember we weren't the kind to make an excuse
    I remember thinking we would break all the rules
    Where are those children now
    Where are those children now

    I remember hellfire and brimstone be damned
    I remember trembling at the touch of your hand
    Crossing the desert to the California sand
    Where are those children now
    Where are those children now

    I remember angels who lent us their wings
    Cigarettes and paperback poetry kings
    Kicking up dust like we didn't need a thing
    Where are those children now
    Where are those children now

    Now the curtain calls and fails to fill me
    I wander down the halls that used to thrill me

    I remember singing "San Francisco Bay Blues"
    I remember being happy just paying our dues
    I remember thinking we had nothing to lose
    Where are those children now
    Where are those children now
    Where are those children now
