There Was A Time; Tom Pacheco

"There was a time, when people would share,
Whatever they had with friends who were there,
They'd sit on the grass, on an evening sublime,
And drink from one glass....there was a time..."

"There was a time, when school was a place,
Where knowledge was gained and classrooms were safe,
The playground was fun, young voices in rhyme,
With no fear of guns....there was a time..."

"There was a time, when people could trust,
The one's they'd elect, to watch over us,
They'd never pull strings, they'd not take a dime,
From corporate kings.......there was a time....."

"There was a time, they measured your worth,
By what good you did, while you were on earth,
Before money ruled, and success was defined,
By celebrity fools......there was a time.."

"There was a time, when people would stand,
And fight for their rights, they'd march hand-in-hand,
Before the "Big Sleep", well planned and designed,
Turned lions to sheep....there was a time..."

So I'm this guy see?...

...and I'm hangin' at these musically oriented cafes and pubs in the Catskills...and one night... this fella, and he kinda looked like a character right outta the storybooks....a traveling minstrel..
A troubadour....
He gets on the stage......
And he starts doin' this song....and the place, well the whole scene....it just... got.... real..... quiet.............!

And the words?.....yeah, the words,__ AND the melody?
WOW!...just blew us all away!
