Copyright (Is For The Living) by grahamearnshaw published on 2012-05-19T07:18:49Z A track dedicated to lawyers who do IPR work, especially Doug Clark. It's based on Coltrane's Blue Trane. So sue me. = = = = = = = Recorded on a MacBookPro with a Yamaha travel guitar, an AKG C414 mike and Logic Pro. ========= Lyrics copyright 2012 Graham Earnshaw Copyright (Is For The Living) This is a tune from john Coltrane Based on a 12-bar blues refrain With a famous five-note phrase Perfection comes in simple ways And it always will remain The genius of Coltrane. I've added lyrics to his song Plus a new beat, a bit more strong That doesn't mean I claim it as my own The provenance is certainly well known And it always will remain The genius of Coltrane. Do I have to ask to make this track Or throw it out if they don't get back What legal status should there be In this digital century To sing this doesn't mean that I disdain The rights of John Coltrane. Copyright is for the living Royalties are not for the dead. Copyright was meant as encouragement To give authors income supplement Convince them to do another one That's not an option now for John Coltrane would be forgiving Cos copyright is for the living Copyright is for the living Royalties are not for the dead.
