about

This is the first of many songs that I will do for a charitable cause that is very dear to my heart.
As many of you may know, I work with adults with developmental disabilities. When I lived in New Orleans, I worked specifically with people diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. This is an affliction that has a broad range of accompanying disabilities.
Some of you may not know that Neil Young has two sons with Cerebral Palsy. I have always been inspired by his music and his charitable efforts to fund The Bridge School.
www.bridgeschool.org.
Every few months I will be covering a Neil Young song and ask each of you to kindly donate money to help children and adults with Cerebral Palsy.
I will NOT ask this of you for this song.
This is simply the first installment of the series and to give you a heads up to this charitable venture in the future.
Enjoy and thanks for listening!
This is my version of one of my favorite Neil Young songs.

lyrics

New Mama
New mama's got a sun in her eyes
No clouds are in my changing skies
Each morning when I wake up to rise
I'm livin' in a dreamland.

Changing times,
all the reasons,
that turn to lies
Throw them all away
Head in hand,
gift of wonders to understand
And open all the way.

New mama's got a sun in her eyes
No clouds are in my changing skies
Each morning when I wake up to rise
I'm livin' in a dreamland.

You can take the man out of New Orleans...but
You can't take the New Orleans out of the man...
Life has taken me all over the world...including a stint living in New Zealand...
Some may know me as Matt Martin...
You may have known me by my past and present musical works...
