Download David Gilmour "Chicago" backing track McKinnon CD..

Post by Keith Jordan »

chicago_backing_track.mp3
Apparently, the track is being processed and cleaned up in Gilmour's Astoria Recording Studio and will be released somtime mid May. I am waiting for further details from the people behind it.

You can download and listen to an MP3 of the backing track to "Chicago/We Can Change The World", to which David Gilmour supplied his lyrics.


Lyrics to David Gilmour Chicago/We Can Change The World

So your brother's bound and gagged
And they've chained him to a chair
Won't you please come from Chicago just to sing
In a land that's known as freedom how can such a thing be fair
Won't you please come from Chicago for the help that you can bring

We can change the world, rearrange the world
It's dying - to get better

Politicians sit yourselves down, there's something for you here
Won't you please stand up in London for our Lives
Don't ask Jack to help you cause he'll turn the other ear
Won't you please stand up in London and join us side by side

We can change the world, rearrange the world
It's dying - if you believe in justice
Dying - and if you believe in freedom
Dying – Stand Up For Autistic Rights
Dying – and a world we can believe in, open up the door

Somehow people must be free, so help the day comes soon
Won't you please come from Chicago show your face
From the bottom of the ocean to the mountains of the moon
Won't you please stand up in London no one else can take your place

You can change the world rearrange the world
It's dying - if you believe in justice
Dying - and if you believe in freedom
Dying - Give Gary back his life
Dying - make a world we can believe in, open up the door

I emailed McKinnon's mum about a week ago but got nothing back yet. I suspect she is a busy lady right now.

The download is likely to be released early next week according to McKinnon's mum. David's manager is going to send some info on Friday/Saturday.
