Subject: RE: Sewing/Weaving songs
Something REALLY STRANGE happened in that last post.

Oh, wait... I know what I did wrong. Let's try it again:

This song isn't literally about weaving or spinning cloth, but it seems relevant to the theme.

It was written for a Unitarian church service in which the minister's sermon title was "Caught In The Interdependent Web."
 

Caught In The Web
words and music by R. Jeanene Pratt © 1997

    G     D7       G           D7         G
Caught in the web, the intricate web,
    G            Em7          C     Em        D7
Weaver and woven in life's flow and ebb,
  C  [Bm]       D7    G  Bm       Em
Spinning and spun, body and soul,
              C                  Am          D -  D7        G     -  C - G
Interconnected, each strand is a part of the whole.

    G     D7       G           D7         G
Caught in the web, the wonderful web,
    G            Em7          C     Em        D7
Weaver and woven in life's flow and ebb.
  C    Bm       D7    G  Bm       Em
Tomorrow the world will reap what we've sown;
              C                  Am          D -  D7        G     -  C - G
Each pebble cast in the water sends ripples to places unknown.
 

I HOPE those chords stay in the right places when I copy and paste this!

Those are the basic lyrics.  The song is meant to be a choir piece, with countermelodies and counterpoint, so there are variations in the arrangement.  Sorry I can't post a MIDI yet.   [I found my Band-In-A-Box, though, so as soon as I learn how to use it, I'll be able to post MIDIS when I post lyrics.]
