In 1986, African-American poet, Paul Laurence Dunbar, published a collection of his poems entitled Lyrics of Lowly Life.
One great poem from the many in the book is a poem about perserverance, called Keep Pluggin' Away.
The poem contained a message for all generations. So, I thought, every good poem deserves a tune. So I gave it a tune, somewhere in 2009 or 2010. I put that acoustic version of the song as the closing song on my first CD, in it for the long haul.
This past Friday, I did a much fuller sound recording.
Check it out below and let me know what you think of it.
