Stander on the Mountain

Features: Bruce Hornsby (piano, vocals, synthesizer); George Marinelli (guitar, backing vocals); John Molo (drums, percussion); Joe Puerta (bass, backing vocals), Charlie Haden (upright bass); David Mansfield (violin); Shawn Colvin (backing vocals).

The title is a phrase from William Hoffman, a Virginia writer. The “stander” may not actually be a word, but it give you this picture of a Paul Bunyan, a big man on the hill. It’s about a former BMOC, big jock on campus, living on past glories.

From “Bruce Hornsby & The Range – A Night On The Town” Sheet music published in 1990 by Cherry Lane Music Company, Inc. (ISBN 0-89524-580-9)
