"I Want To Follow You" By Kevin Lajiness




I want to follow you I want to follow you
 In the misty air I see a hallow there
Is that the Sun trying to shine through
I want to follow you I don’t know where I belong
 But I am drawn to you I reach my arm out to you,
 I want to be your friend. I think I know what your about and I agree
 You are wiser than me someone has taught you the ways of life
 All that I know has come to me by reason and rhyme
 The patterns of nature if you will I find myself at your side
 I wish there was something I can give you but all that I have is part of me but I can promise I am true sometime I feel like I caught
Between a rock and a hard place I’m in two different places at the same time
But for now I will stay where I am but I am listening to you I hear you Calling out and if you want me to cry out for you I will put it in a song

"The Best Songs" Kevin Lajiness

"Echo Maker" Kevin Lajiness



We are the great river children of them that forged a bond
And we are the bond for our future
Our fathers like crane and echo maker
Brought peace and prosperity trade throughout the territory
With their alliance our fathers new honor and wisdom
And humbled themselves to bring order through the great creator
You can here the rhythm of the men threw the songs that they
Sing as they carry their furs down the river
It was haunty but inviting and the bond brought forth a new nation
That spread across a continent but all that brings war
Nearly destroyed the new nation and the conflict changed it forever
But it survived even today it thrives but lacks spirituality
And its identity and I pray for it now to rise up again and bring the bonds that were made once back together so that we can be a family once more amen We are the great river children of them that forged a bond
And we are the bond for our future
Our fathers like crane and echo maker
Brought peace and prosperity trade throughout the territory
With their alliance our fathers new honor and wisdom
And humbled themselves to bring order through the great creator
You can here the rhythm of the men threw the songs that they
Sing as they carry their furs down the river
It was haunty but inviting and the bond brought forth a new nation
That spread across a continent but all that brings war
Nearly destroyed the new nation and the conflict changed it forever
But it survived even today it thrives but lacks spirituality
And its identity and I pray for it now to rise up again and bring the bonds that were made once back together so that we can be a family once more amen

"Joined as One Forever" Kevin Lajiness

I woke up in a sweat last night
I had a vision it was a terrible sight
 I took a journey and they showed me of there plight
 I saw two hands joined together by the great creator
 It spanned an ocean and a continent
Then there was a great fight that
Crossed the ocean and a continent
Two kingdoms come from it
 But one was left in the dust and ashes
Too rise from the two that were left for it was born
 Of love not war no man should forget the children
Of those that cried there fathers that died
 That they were joined as one but live in two kingdoms
 Give thanks to the one he has blessed the children
I woke up in a sweat last night I had a vision it was a terrible sight
I took a journey and they showed me of there plight
 I saw two hands joined together by the great creator
 It spanned an ocean and a continent then there was a great fight
 That crossed the ocean and a continent
Two kingdoms come from it but one was left in the dust and ashes
 To rise from the two that were left for it was born of love not war
 No man should forget the children of those that cried
 There fathers that died that they were joined as one
 But live in two kingdoms give thanks to the one
 He has blessed the children

"Turn Back The Hands Of Time" Kevin Lajiness

Everything that’s been said has been said before
Everything that’s been said has been said before
Everything that’s been said has been said before
Problem with white man He talks out both sides of his mouth
And he throws common sense out the door
The Indian way had evolved the laws of Life and the ways of Nature
Their teaching every phrase of thought and action from the sacredness of self
To the duty of each man toward his brother they warned us our ways of life
Leads to the destruction of our mother, turn back the hands of time
And follow you brother, turn back the hands of time and follow your brother
Turn back the hands of time and follow your brother It’s not to late to save our mother

Location of the Ancient Wyandot (Huron) and Maumee River valley Indians

http://americanindianshistory.blogspot.com/ "The Wyandots, Miamis, Shawnees, Delawares, Ottawas, Chippewas and Potawatomi. These were the seven tribes known in after years as the "western confederacy," who fought so long and bitterly against the government of the United States, and who were at last conquered by the arms and genius of General Anthony Wayne in the year 1794.
The Ottawas, Chippewas and Potawatomi formed a sort of loose confederacy known as the Three Fires, and Massas, a Chippewa chief, so referred to them at the Treaty of Greenville.
The Miamis, the most powerful of the confederates, were subdivided into the Eel Rivers, the Weas, and the Piankeshaws. The Kickapoos, a small tribe which lived on the Sangamon, and the Vermilion of the Wabash, were associated generally with the Potawatomi, and were always the allies of the English. The Winnebagoes of Wisconsin were of the linguistic family of the Sioux; were [Pg 45]generally associated with the confederates against the Americans, and many of their distinguished warriors fought against General Harrison at Tippecanoe. The decadent tribes known in early times as the Illinois, did not play a conspicuous part in the history of the northwest.A description of the seven tribes of savages who opposed the advance of settlement in the Northwest.

24 - HISTORY OF HENRY AND FULTON COUNTIES.

When the impartial historian reviews the beauties and attractions of this country, the ease with
which the Indian could subsist, the sport of hunting and fishing, of paddling his frail bark canoe
across lakes and on the streams, running the rapids of the swift rivers upon whose banks their
villages were usually situated, where their children, in the limpid waters, sported like dolphins in
the long summer days, and the hunter slaked his thirst at the bubbling spring of pure, cold water
that could be found bursting from the banks, and the thousand attractions natural to the civilized
or savage man, who would not contend for such a country ? Would not civilized and cultured
man ? Surely the North American Indian might be pardoned, if not exonerated for fighting for his
home, his council fires and the graves of his fathers, that had not been already desecrated by the
foot of the stranger.

William Penn: America’s First Great Champion for Liberty and Peace | The Freeman | Ideas On Liberty

"The only Reason I Bring up William Penn is to show as in Early Detroit Natives Friendship and Marriage was sought to Strengthen ties for Fur trade Dynastic Families, Penn's Experiment was the result of Religious Reformation and freedom. The Quakers believed it brotherly love, and to prove this Philadelphia was not fortified against the Indians and friendship was encouraged by him, obviously this did not last"-KL
William Penn: America’s First Great Champion for Liberty and Peace | The Freeman | Ideas On Liberty: "In October 1712, Penn suffered a stroke while writing a letter about the future of Pennsylvania. Four months later, he suffered a second stroke.

While he had difficulty speaking and writing, he spent time catching up with his children whom he had missed during his missionary travels. He died on July 30, 1718. He was buried at Jordans, next to Guli.

Long before his death, Pennsylvania ceased to be a spiritual place dominated by Quakers. Penn’s policy of religious toleration and peace—no military conscription—attracted all kinds of war-weary European immigrants. There were English, Irish, and Germans, Catholics, Jews, and an assortment of Protestant sects including Dunkers, Huguenots, Lutherans, Mennonites, Moravians, Pietists, and Schwenkfelders. Liberty brought so many immigrants that by the American Revolution Pennsylvania had grown to some 300,000 people and became one of the largest colonies. Pennsylvania was America’s first great melting pot.

Philadelphia was America’s largest city with almost 18,000 people. It was a major commercial center—sometimes more than a hundred trading ships anchored there during a single day. People in Philadelphia could enjoy any of the goods available in England. Merchant companies, shipyards, and banks flourished. Philadelphia thrived as an entrepot between Europe and the American frontier.

With an atmosphere of liberty, Philadelphia emerged as an intellectual center. Between 1740 and 1776, Philadelphia presses issued an estimated 11,000 works including pamphlets, almanacs, and books. In 1776, there were seven newspapers reflecting a wide range of opinions. No wonder Penn’s “city of brotherly love” became the most sacred site for American liberty, where Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, and delegates drafted the Constitution."

"Once Penn received his charter he realized--or at least was informed--that much of the land he wanted was held by Indians who would expect payment
http://xroads.virginia.edu/~cap/penn/hicks1.gif
 in exchange for a quitclaim to vacate the territory. The tribe he would have to deal with most often was the Delaware (Leni Lenape), who had never been defeated militarily by the Swedes or the Dutch. Penn, not surprisingly, had no military ambitions; he even refused to fortify Philadelphia. As such, the only practical and legal way to get their land and secure their friendship was the treaty
(201) We do know that Penn did buy much land, so must have made at least one such agreement, instituting what was known in Indian terminology as a 'chain of friendship'. And there do exist several references to this chain being made between Penn and the Delaware."

"I'm going to rewrite this soon to include some life events" Here's the dealeo, I started doing Wood Sculptures about 15 years ago to try and keep myself busy after I stopped drinking and smoking. About 5 years into it I got throat and neck Cancer. I say this because before I had the Cancer I had not written or sung Music. Looking to clean up an open space in late 2007 and 2008 ( http://openspacedocumentary.blogspot.com/) i became closer to some of the local wild life, I bonded with a Hawk and a Baby duck and started to write songs, I forced myself to sing when I could, I have over three hundred songs now, some good, some not so good, but I am getting better at writing, singing, mixing and arranging.

 These books represent a ton of work , good bad or indifferent. I apologize ahead of time for typo's English and spelling, i suck at all of that, but it's about the music and lyrics and that's what really matter but I gave it my best.
 with some links to the songs , some I have taken down, (I am going to try and put them all back up for nostalgia and to show my progress from Throat and neck Cancer), but the lyrics are all there
  I have many slideshows/Videos of nature and Open Space pic's over the years that I put to my music on YouTube-kevinlajiness  and saved in Google + or Picasa.

  I grew up on Lake Erie Lagoons, my grandfather had a bate shop. Fishing and hunting was big on my fathers side no doubted stemmed from the fact that his ancestors were “Woods Runners” or “coureurs des bois”. As long as I can remember I’ve had a love for trees, nature and the environment, I attribute that, and the spiritual connection I have with mother earth, to the connection my ancestors had with the Indigenous peoples of the Americas. Most if not all of them are child friendly. I started writing my early songs while working on a open space for a year, where I bonded with a hawk and a duck.

        Allot of what I draw from comes from life’s experience and what’s in my heart, what I believe is a responsibility to carry the messages of or ancestors on what is right, to come to a conclusion we are all part of something bigger than ourselves and that we pass that on to our children in story and song,but remember i am an artist I write story and rhyme, lesson and fable, I do not try to be politically correct.even though i don't use cuss words other that Hell and dam, I don't have a problem with artist that do,to each there own, I believe things evolve for a reason, hey it got someone out of the slums, by the way the baby duck that followed me home got to big and i gave her to a zoo keeper, she flew back to his house from the zoo and they raised her, she has since had her own baby's
