I wrote this song for the Central Mass Genealogical Society when they asked me to play at their annual meeting in 2016.

I’m looking for you
I know you were there
Do I have your smile?
Your eyes or your hair?
The courage that drove you
To come to this land
And survive by your wit, your will and your hands?

I’m looking for you
I know you were here
I envision your strength
Imagine your fear
Do I carry in me
Some part of your dream
Is there something you lost
I can somehow redeem?

I’m looking for you
For all of the names
And all of the links
That make up the chain
Of family and kin
This connection of blood
The unbroken ties
Of flesh and of love

Every hint, every clue
Brings me closer to you
With every line that I trace
The pieces fall in place

I’m looking for you
but you’ll never know
The river of time
runs steady and slow
But only one way
From mountain to sea
Only one way
From you into me

I’m looking for you
I’m looking for you
I’m looking for you
I’m looking for you
