Things you Learn at Cracker Barrel

Download I had breakfast with my Dad this morning. Through mouthfuls of biscuits & gravy from the “Old Timer’s” breakfast, he said, “Ya know what song I like? Bet you never heard of it”. Always up for a challenge, I replied, “Try me”. (clever, huh?) He came up with something called “For All We Know”. I thought it was the one The Carpenters did, but he insisted they must have stole it. After he hummed a few bars (sort of) I realized that it did ring a faint bell. I wanted to point out just how old that song must be, but he was buying – so I dropped the subject.
Well, it stuck in my head and I thought it might make a good old song for a nostalgic set on stage. I did a little research online but found practically nothing on that particular piece. I might point out there was plenty of information on The Carpenters song. Then I found some sheet music and a recording of somebody named Barbara Law singing “For all we know, we may never meet again”. That was it! I jumped on my handy sequence maker (Yamaha keyboard) and cranked out a version I believe a singer could use. Thanks, Dad.
