This is a rough, piano-only version. We’ll probably record it during church in July, 2008.
Pastor Stella approached me about an idea for a song. She had heard a story by a Rabbi about a couple guys that followed Moses out of Egypt. They were so self-centered that they didn’t even see Moses perform any of the miracles. They were busy looking down, and only saw a bunch of fish laying on the ground. I was immediately taken with the idea, and wrote this within the next day.
This song is being written for the summer “water” theme,
and is currently scheduled for July 6th & 13th.
Partridge family feel with a boogey-woogey chorus. Mixolydian mode.
Fish on the Ground
Written by Ron Lisle
G C Gmaj7 C repeat as long as desired.
We all know the story, how Moses parted the sea.
Spoken. Loop on intro softly.
Chorus twice and out.
