REVIEW:

"Tina's Song" is an original piece of music
first published as part of Cashwell's second
novel:
Resurgence.

We learn of its genesis from the prologue to
Mountain Music:

[The spirit of a nation is recorded in the
music of its poets. Throughout history,
from the early minstrels to modern-day
lyricists, we have inherited in our songs a
sociopolitical treasure of incomprehensible
value. Yes, among our finest jewels are
cheap imitations, but even these teach us
about ourselves. If one had time to ponder
the rarer stones, full-length novels could be
written from the words of a single verse.]

And so there was: "Tina's Song" and then
Resurgence.

“TINA’S SONG”

If I could trade places, I would,
I would.
If yet there were traces, I could,
I could.
His face above all faces to see,
Be sure.

I’d run all his races,
Help tie up his laces,
Then ask:
Can I do more?

(Chorus)
Oh, Jude, if we must be forever apart,
Teach me how to mend a broken heart.

Make him whole again, I would,
I would.
Touch him, hold him, if I could,
I would.
His face above all faces to see,
Be sure.

I’d run all his races,
Help tie up his laces,
Then ask:
Can I do more?

(Chorus)
Oh, Jude, if we must be forever apart,
Teach me how to mend a broken heart.

Ignite rose candles, I should,
I should.
Pure and innocent in their light,
They would.
His face above all faces to see,
Be sure.

I’d run all his races,
Help tie up his laces,
Then ask:
Can I do more?

(Chorus)
Oh Jude, if we must be forever apart,
Teach me how to mend a broken heart.
