Neil Young On The Prayer List
A true story.
Song written and performed by Muscle Shoals singer/songwriter Mark Narmore.
For your Sunday morning...
UPDATE: Here's the backstory...
First of all thrashers wheat is the coolest website on the planet! You more thank likely don't know me, so..a quick bio..I'm Mark Narmore,the writer and performer of "Neil Young On The Prayer List" Muscle Shoals/Nashville songwriter, hits include Craig Morgan "That's What I Love About Sunday", Shenandoah's "Moon Over Georgia" and Blackhawk's "Like There Ain't No Yesterday"plus 70 writer credits on major acts,mostly country and gospel.....Spooner Oldham is my first cousin and we both attend the same small family church in Center Star, Alabama(72 members now!!lol)everyone is related in the congregation! Spooner was recording with Neil and band in Nashville a few years back when Neil was rushed to NYC with an aneurysm..Spooner, in a cool, nice gesture for his friend, called back home and asked that "Neil" be put on the prayer list, he didn't think a thing of it, he was concerned for this friend....but when folks rolled in to Sunday service the next day, it was the most wonderful, surreal moment you can imagine...there was Neil Young, nestled in the church prayer listing, with aunt Mamie Jenkins who had a sore hip, and Clarence who twisted his ankle in an armadillo hole!!lol....I couldn't help but document this true, touching, yet humorous moment and at the same time offer up a big hats off to Neil Young....I understand that the Southern, homespun, tongue-in-cheek humor is lost on some, but for those who get it, it's just a humorous, based on a true story type of song, (it is very self depracating,as we Southerners, love to laugh at ourselves..lol) This version is a country publishing demo that is designed to get other acts to record it....I do it live with much more a Delbert or Ray Charles musical slant on it, it's my most requested song when I perform...hope that explains a bunch for you guys and gals...God bless Mark Narmore
