about

I appreciate the Buskers, the singers who share their messages from street corners all over the world. They want to play. They see people passing by each day. And they understand what truly matters. For them, i offer thanks and Man on the Corner.

lyrics

Man on the Corner

Man on the corner
Ancient guitar
Playing and singing for those passing by

Played with a passion
Pried from his soul
Always a look of peace in his eyes

He sang
Ba, da,n, da, da lend a helping hand
Ba, da,n, da, da la lemme see you smile
Ba, da,n, da, da, la, la listen
Ba, da, da, da, n, da, da, da, da, da

Week after week
Month after month
There on his corner, rain or shine

I felt comfort in his music
Heard the wisdom in his words
And saw the look of peace in his eyes

He sang
Ba, da,n, da, da love the little children
Da da la love what you’re doing
Ba, da,n, da, da la, la listen
Ba, da, da, da, n, da, da, da, da, da

Coins in his case
Fortunes came and went
Stranger touched as we passed by

Small price to pay
For his insights every day
And to share the look of peace in his eyes

He sang
La, da, dad a, da do unto others
Ba, da, as you would have them do
La la n la la, love them like a brother
Ba, da, da, da, n, da, da, da, da, da


Never knew his name
But I felt empty inside
The day his corner went quiet

Had few possessions
But he had it all
I knew he knew the secret by the peace in his eyes

I’ll always hear his
La, da, da, da da little words of wisdom, yes I will
Da, da, do, da, da his lines of love
Na, da, da, da, da, da singing on the corner
Da, da, da he was sharing through his songs
Ba, da, da he was teaching through his songs
La, da, da, he was loving through his songs

There was a man
On the corner
With a guitar, and a song, and peace in his eyes

about

Dawnya Clarine Sandpoint

Clarine’s songs are beautifully crafted, her production tastefully understated, and her singing so heartbreakingly pure as to suggest she knows your secrets and your soul.

Elements of jazz, blues, soul and reggae are woven together under Dawnya’s smooth, sultry voice.

Think Jason Mraz meets Norah Jones with a Ruthie Foster kick.
