Info Die Textidee kam mir im Juni 2012 bei meiner USA-Reise in Three Rivers, Kalifornien, nachdem wir wenige Tage zuvor in San Francisco dieses wunderschöne, rote Hippie-Hotel besucht hatten. Die Textskizze und erste Akkordideen wurden in den nächsten zwei Jahren ab und zu aufgegriffen und weiterentwickelt, aber heute, in einer kleinen Pension in Höxter-Bruchhausen am Frühstückstisch, bewaffnet mit meiner Suzuki-Dobro am Morgen nach der ersten OBS-Festivalnacht, waren dann die erste und zweite Strophe samt Melodie und Akkorden soweit fertig, dass W4L die Nummer bald aufgreifen können!

Notiz

Little boy, at the age of twelve, maybe he was thirteen,
Dressing like a soldier for carnival
A khaki-shirt and leather boots
A red bandana and a wooden gun

When he was looking in the mirror: he was scared what he could see
A kind of person that he never ever wanted to be
So he made a promise to himself and he swore he never would renege
Never in his life, oh, never in his life
He would pick up a gun

I met the old lady at the Red Victorian
On Haight Street by the Frisco Bay
She’s living there for more than 40 years
Offering bed & breakfast for a peaceful world

She has a book called “time capsule”, she handed it to me
To write down a few lines about my personal experience with peace
So I wrote about the soldier boy and the promise he never had reneged
Never in his life, oh, never in his life
He had picked up a gun
