Interesting compilation of notes on Henry. Thanks for sending it along. I noticed Melanie's request for lyrics to HDC, so I pulled out the tape case. I did send a copy directly to them, but I thought I'd send it to you as well in case someone else is interested. Rich better watch out, not only is Henry getting 'spoiled', this threatens to become the Henrymaillist! BTW, "Bus Named Desire" is a knockout offering which I keep in the car for listening to - loud! 3 days until the show hits Springfield, and this household is ready!

"Henry Doesn't Care"
(words & music by Ashley Cleveland)
(Warner-Tamerlane Publishing Corp. 1993)
(BMI)

Baby's got a good laugh on me He don't have to wrestle with his history He don't have to worry 'bout thinking too much The only pressure he feels is a human touch

Foolish things drive me to despair Henry doesn't care

Baby don't know about false pretense He never met a soul he had to convince He don't hide his anger in a few cheap shots Or act like he's happy when he knows that he's not

Foolish things drive me to despair Henry doesn't care Henry doesn't care

Baby's gonna feel the thumb of powerful men And learn first hand about original sin Got to take his knocks like everyone else But I hate to see him learn to protect himself

Fearful things drive me to despair Henry doesn't care Henry doesn't care

Don't I wish I could say the same about Tim . . . By God's grace, one day, we will all be set free. Until then,
Tim


Thanks Tim!
