'Then You Will Run Free" - A Song for Every Good Dog - Lyrics and Chords

 

Smokey - The great dog this song is about

 

Smokey Moksu Gorman

 

Written by Chris Gorman and Kelli Caldwell

 

Chris had a melody going on his ukulele by the campfire and he asked if I could write a song to go with it. I asked him, "What do you want it to be about?" He said, "How about my dog, Smokey?" Now, Smokey's some dog, and if you've ever seen him flying through the woods, you know what I mean. It wasn't too hard to write a song about him, for him, and for every good dog out there loving the smells and sights and sounds and people and other animals in their lives.

Chris is playing his uke on this version, along with our friend, Jordan Disko, who came in to add some love with his banjo! Can't wait to sing this song around the campfire with friends and Smokey and his family, too.

What does he see?

What does he hear?

Where does he go?

What does he know?

Flying along

Like life is a song

Only the good dogs know——

 

Chorus:

When he hears the call——

Reach into his soul——

He lets his wild fire go——

Smokey will run free

Can you hear it too——?

Reaching into you——?

Let your inner child through——

Then you will run free——

Then you will run free——too

 

So many hills

And valleys in life

But that’s where we find

Out what’s inside

The right attitude

Can carry you through

Seems like the good dogs know——

 

Chorus:

When he hears the call——

Reach into his soul——

He lets his wild fire go——

Smokey will run free

Can you hear it too——?

Reaching into you——?

Let your inner child through——

Then you will run free——

Then you will run free——too

TED Talk: "How Singing Together Changes the Brain" - Tania de Jong

Tania de Jong AM makes the case that people singing together can change the brain. Pushing the idea that creativity is the strategic tool of the 21st century, she says how our voices have been silenced and that it's not doing us any good. She explains how singing is a survival mechanism, how it makes our hearts beat together and can help heal strokes and depression.

 

 
 

With singing, and the potential she believes it has, Tania dedicates herself to enhancing and promoting ingenuity and founded Creativity Australia and Creative Universe to do so. As a leading Australian soprano and through 'With One Voice', Tania works with disadvantaged communities. In 2008 she was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia for services to the arts and for the establishment and development of arts enrichment programs for schools and communities.
