Description
My rendition of a tune I faved when Tim submitted it May of 2009. It has a unique style I was unable to grasp. But thought I give it a shot with my own angle. Can't beat the original, but thanks, Tim, for letting me play your song!

Lyrics
hey you become a long river
you become along wait for me Yeah
hey you become a long river
you become a long wait
you become along wait for me

hey you become a long river
you become along wait for me Yeah
hey wonderin' why you hang around
been wondering why you stay and feed
hey you'll see

hey you become a long river
you become along sea
hey didn't let you go
hey didn't let you go

day becomes a long river
day it becomes a long sea when your with me
i couldn't let you know
though you had what was left in my soul
and i know what you did it
what you took it for
you just wanted to see me fall
and thought I was just I was messed around
i couldn't let you go
i couldn't let you know
i didn't let you go
and down will I ever go
if you can hear this voice and you know what I say
color all things in your way
and I cant have a thing to say

Brave call Doug!
Picking a Tim-tune must have been quite a challenge, but this came up really well and suits your "psychedelic side" quite well. You've managed to get Tim's "unique" style across plus make it a very different sort of listen. I bet Tim will love it.
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

Thanks Neil!
Yes, I wanted to do this justice... but I found I can only be good enough. I started developing another version, but time came too short.

Man that was wild
Wow, I am honored I love the stripped down first part the way you captured the essence of the song, then the second part with its disconnection and off beat color I think this is better than my version, I have been real busy but when I saw the flaming guy I had to check thank you for doing this!!!!!!!!!!!

Kudos to you, Tim
Thanks for checking in, Tim! Yah, not better... different. I still like the gliding, weaving effect you created in the original, best.

Muddy, gooey, and smeared. A great cover and an awesome version on it's own.

The beauty of covers is to make them your own, and you did. This is so awesome, I like when it picks up, very cool! Great vocals & harmonies too!

This is so cool
what an inspired choice of tune and a great treatment - I was digging the acoustic opening and then it just got better. Excellent cover - I can see Tim smiling.

Moments of Genius
This is so very on and kinda off. It has moments that make me question my role in music. I wish I was a more earthy gritty artist. Some of the timing issues got to me but eh... still fantastic.

So nice of you to comment! Thanks so much! The rendition was definitely inspired by Tim. Yeah, the second section come in a half a beat too early and the signature of that part drags a bit. It was one of those moments where I wasn't willing to tweak it anymore. My weakness...

Tons of feel
The basic guitar and vocal has a very honest and sincere performance feel. Well done. The 2nd half is an interesting "Trip" that the song takes. Kuddos for making both versions work within one song.

Much Thanks!
It was fun coming up with this version. But by last week, I was ready to redo the whole thing... but that's how that goes!

I appreciate that you took the time to visit.

Nice one. I like the vocals & harmonies, guitar is tight. Timing issues on section 2 but it still works great.

hey doug
first of all - cool young avatar pic. i listen to your voice now and think about all the stuff that has happened in between; a life-time of experience probably. hey wait...the song's over too quickly and i was just beginning to dig the vibe. i like the counterpoint lyric thing going on....that works really well....and how it goes into something else around 1.45 with that lead guitar and richer bass-line. cool harmonies too.

I'm a big Tim fan but hadn't heard this one. His stuff tends to be so electric and eclectic that it's easy to dismiss the idea of presenting one of his songs in such stripped down setting. But the acoustic section just worked so beautifully. Great guitar tones in the electric section.

Hey, I like this Doug.
Guitar sounds really nice. You have a Jim Morrison texture to your voice that is very appealing, and blends very well with harmony. Good cover. Good post. Terry
