Default Tin Man, America 1974

America is a British-American rock band formed in London in 1970. America is Dewey Bunnell, Gerry Beckley and Dan Peek, sons of US Air Force personnel stationed in London.

The song's title refers to the Tin Woodman from The Wizard of Oz. Songwriter Dewey Bunnell was quoted describing the parallel: "My favorite movie, I guess. I always loved it as a kid. Very obscure lyrics. Great grammar - 'Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man.' It's sort of a poetic license.

This song is for all innocent and simple people of our world. May their joy and appreciation for life spread like wildfire, and promote happiness and hope in all peoples.

When ever Rene’s name appears on the show and tell thread you know you are guaranteed a good listen! And today is no different. You are one smooth singing CoolCat, Rene! Great cover.

Thanks Rene. Yeh, the thought behind that one was the emotions of realizing a relationship was over. Decided to use my nylon string on that one as I thought it worked well for the theme. Appreciate the comments.
