Robert Hunter Honored With Lifetime Achievement Award
"Would you hear my voice come through the music
Would you hold it near as it were your own?"
Congratulations to the esteemed Robert Hunter on his Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting at last night's Americana Music Association awards ceremony. What's your favorite Hunter lyric?
Goin' where the wind don't blow so strange.
lost my boots in transit babe, pile of smoking leather
nailed a retread to my feet and prayed for better weather
Congrats, rh. This kind of recognition is long overdue.
...it was only a matter of time.
These two songs turn me into a gooey mess. My favorite Hunter lyrics for sure.
I always was partial to: "Standing on the moon, with nothing else to do, a lovely view of Heaven, But I'd rather be with you". Congratulations, Hunter. See you in Beantown.
Its really hard to separate the lyrics from song...so, its basically like picking your favorite song. One of my favorites is the bridge in Hes Gone.
Hes going where the wind don't blow so strange...
Once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.
Mr. Hunter. You deserve it!
"But I'll get back on my feet someday
The good lord willing, if he says I may
I know that the life I'm living's no good
I'll get a new start, live the life I should
I'll get up and fly away
I'll get up and fly away"
