about

This album is a tribute to Abe's dad, Ed Rosenberg, who passed away in 2011. He was Abe's first music teacher and they played music together for over 15 years. Ed had many original songs however very few of them were ever recorded or made available for people to listen to after his death. The intent of this album is to preserve the original songs that Ed taught to Abe for all time and to share Ed's music with the world. Today, Abe and Morgan are the heart of the band Sweet Radish and they have created this tribute to Ed's music with the sweet vocals of Morgan Velasquez and the instrumentation of Abe Rosenberg. They have also included a track called "Ed's Song" which is written by Abe Rosenberg and was written for his father.

Track Name: Ed's Song
WHEN YOU WERE YOUNG,
YOU LEFT THE CITY FOR OKLAHOMA
YOU SOON FOUND OUT,
COLORADO WAS MUCH BETTER FOR YA

CITY BOY, NEW YORK BREAD,
YOU LEFT THE SMOG BEHIND
TO FIND A CLEARER HEAD

BEFORE YOU MET MY MOTHER,
YOU HAD THREE DIFFERENT WIVES
THREE OTHER CHILDREN
THREE OTHER LIVES

SHE KNEW YOU’D BE MY DADA,
RIGHT FROM THE START
IT MIGHT HAVE SCARED YOU
BUT YOU FOLLOWED YOUR HEART

CH:
I DON'T KNOW WHY I GOT SO LUCKY
I DON'T KNOW WHY I GOT THE BEST OF YOU
ALL I KNOW IS ILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU
REMEMBER THE THINGS YOU TAUGHT ME…..


YOU TOLD ME TO SING,
EVEN IF I WAS OUT OF KEY
JUST BELIEVE IN YOURSELF,
AND YOU'LL HAVE WHAT YOU NEED

LIKE A LEAF IN THE WIND,
YOU BLEW ACROSS THE LAND
WE ALWAYS KNEW,
YOU WERE A TRAVELIN' MAN

FROM MEXICO TO FLORIDA
TEXAS TO L.A.
YOU SHOWED US THE WORLD
AND SHOWED US HOW TO PLAY

CH
I DON'T KNOW WHY I GOT SO LUCKY
I DON'T KNOW WHY I GOT THE BEST OF YOU
ALL I KNOW IS ILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU
REMEMBER THE THINGS YOU TAUGHT ME…..

WE PLAYED MUSIC TOGETHER
AS HAPPY AS COULD BE
UNTIL AGE CAUGHT UP WITH YOU
AND CANCER BROKE YOUR STINGS

THE YEAR OF THE RABBIT,
WAS THE BEGINNING AND THE END
YOU TOUCHED MANY LIVES
AND YOU HAD MANY FRIENDS

I SCATTERED YOUR ASHES
AND FINGER BONES TOO
BUT I'LL NEVER FORGET
JUST PLAYING TUNES WITH YOU

CH
I DON'T KNOW WHY I GOT SO LUCKY
I DON'T KNOW WHY I GOT THE BEST OF YOU
ALL I KNOW IS I'LL ALWAYS LOVE YOU
REMEMBER THE THINGS YOU TAUGHT ME…..

Long Lost BRIDGE:
YOU TAUGHT ME HOW TO SING AND PLAY
YOU SHOWED ME THE WORLD
YOU SAID MONEY DOESN'T MAKE A HAPPY MAN
THATS DEEP DOWN INSIDE
LISTEN TO YOUR HEART AND DO THE BEST YOU CAN
I LOVE YOU
I LOVE YOU
Track Name: It's so Good
IT'S SO GOOD TO SEE YOU AGAIN
LET ME TAKE YOUR HAND AS WE WALK AROUND THE BEND
AND LOOK INTO EACH OTHER’S EYES
ITS BEEN SO LONG SINCE ITS BEEN THIS WAY
THE RAIN AND THE FOG ARE LIFING AWAY
I FEEL YOUR HEART BEATING TO THE TIME
OF OUR FOOTSTEPS WALKING
IN THE RHYTHM AND THE RHYME OF THE TIDES
OF THE TIDES

CH:
AND OH I FEEL YOUR LOVE
AND OH I FEEL YOUR LOVE

THE SUN IS SINKING INTO THE WEST
MY HEART IS SWELLING, I'M FEELING MY BEST
OUR LOVE IS GROWING LIKE A PUMKIN ON THE VINE
I'M FEELIN FINE
I'M FEELIN FINE

CH:
AND OH I FEEL YOUR LOVE
AND OH I FEEL YOUR LOVE

LET ME SEE YOUR EYES WHILE THE SEAGULL CRIES
FEEL YOUR LOVE LIKE A MORNING DOVE
LIKE A COMMET STREAKING THROUGH THE SKIES
I SINK INTO YOUR EYES
INTO YOUR EYES

CH:
AND OH I FEEL YOUR LOVE
AND OH I FEEL YOUR LOVE

INSTRUMENTAL

I HEAR THE MUSIC OF THE BIRDS AND BEES
SMELL THE LOVE OF THE LILACS AND THE TREES
I SEE THE BEAUTY OF THE WINTER LAND FREEZE
I LOVE IT ALL
I LOVE IT ALL

CH:
AND OH I FEEL YOUR LOVE
AND OH I FEEL YOUR LOVE
