Inauguration Day 2017 (We're Not Leaving Town) by Todd Burge



Inauguration Day 2017 (We’re Not Leaving Town)

Pray if you pray
Or maybe meditate
On the state of a nation starting over
Over the hill
Or the hump, if you will
Or maybe we’re just climbing
Up up up

Our class is half full
And our hearts are broken
Yet hope is pumping out
So, we’re not leaving town
We’re not leaving town

So what can we do?
Are you feeling helpless too?
But just help those who
Might need more than you and I do?

Lift up a child
Pick up the down and out
Shoot a sunny ray in the way
Of some nasty cloud

Our class is half full
And our hearts are broken
Yet hope is pumping out
So, we’re not leaving town
We’re not leaving town

So, pray if you pray
Or maybe meditate
On the state of a nation starting over

The “Our Albums Are Released Tour”  2016
Larry Groce
www.larrygroce.com
Grammy Nominee & Mountain Stage host Larry Groce and his wife Sandra Groce, violist with the West Virginia Symphony, have made a new studio recording called “Live Forever.” (Produced by Don Dixon) It includes three of Larry’s original songs and eight covers, mostly songs connected to Mountain Stage over the years. This very well received recording is Groce’s first album in over two decades.
“this album demonstrates that [Larry] should not have stayed away so long. While the album consists of mostly covers of songs done by artists who appeared on the show — such as Townes Van Zandt, Jesse Winchester, and Billy Joe Shaver — the originals are the treasures.  Most notably, ‘What Do You Think About (When You Think Of Love),’ which was inspired by the great American writer Raymond Carver. In it, Groce becomes the Robert Altman of song…’When the Mist Clears Away’…captures West Virginia, in all its magnificence and obscurity, like few others”  Amos Perrine – No Depression
Listen to Larry Groce with Ray Wylie Hubbard  – Live Forever:
Todd Burge has a new album out as well entitled “Live from Mountain Stage 2006-2015”. The CD includes 17 tracks of original material.  Larry Groce has called Burge “WV’s premier songwriter”.
“Like a Randy Newman with a guitar, he’s also been described as a Warren Zevon who can evoke bizarre characters and situations….hearing Burge live takes the cake. The only other live Mountain Stage albums by a single artist are by Jesse Winchester and Laura Nyro, so Burge is in good company. “ Amos Perrine – No Depression
