Dan Peek recorded a version of this song with America in 1974 where the song peaked at #5 and then he re-wrote song of the lyrics and released it again as a Christian song in 1986 where it reached #1. Dan and his wife both wrote the song.
He thought that Eleanor Rigby by The Beatles was a real downer type song for humanity, and decided to write a song that up-lifted humanity instead and this song was that song.
As you'll see from te lesson, this one is mainly just a rhythm tune, unless you play harmonica in which case you can blow thru a break.
