Em                        D                 Em
This one goes out to the one I love.
This one goes out to the one I’ve left behind.
G            D          Am            C
A simple prop to occupy my time…

Fire…
Fire…

This one goes out to the one I love.
This one goes out to the one I’ve left behind.
A simple prop to occupy my time…
This one goes out to the one I love.

Fire…
Fire…

This one goes out to the one I love.
This one goes out to the one I’ve left…  behind.
Another prop has occupied my time.
This one goes out to the one I love.

Fire…
Fire…

LS Historian: I recorded this song in July of 2009, knowing that fatherhood was coming in roughly 5 months. I enjoyed this one because it was easy to sing over (repeated lyrics are a favorite of mine for that reason :D). A nice throwback to 5 years ago.

Welcome to Thumpin’ Thursday!  I bring you another song from another band that has been covered before.

REM is tonight’s band and the song is “The One I Love”.  It is from their album “Documents”.  The song is a good one, but i’ve always found it to be a bit repetative.  Oddly enough, the allure of REM’s music is doing things like this.  Michael Stipe has always constructed interesting lyrics and they are always open for interpretation.

Sorry for the late night post.  I was planning on this it this afternoon, but it was a good beach day.  The A/C has been on in the house for over a week, and today we finally got to be outside and not feel like it’s 150% humid.  It’s all good though.

Enjoy tonight’s cover!
