  1. You have given the annoyingly catchy ‘Take me Home ‘ of Country Roads a new meaning.

    Moving … accusing … niggles the conscience. What are we doing to help?

    If you can get someone to sing this and post the words and matching pics .. might start a movement to assist them. Its plenty food for thought.

  2. Reblogged this on Ramblin' Rose and commented:
    Andy Mersdon has penned some inspiring words – Asylum Roads – to be sung to the tune of what he calls the annoyingly catchy tune ‘Country Roads’ by John Denver .

    It really highlights the plight of refugees risking their lives to a place they long to be …

    ocean breeze, take me there
    To the place, I long to be.

    If we can’t help in any other way, let’s at least whisper a prayer daily for those on the high seas today leaving everything behind in search of asylum, refuge, freedom.

    Safe asylum, distant refuge
    Take me there
    On pure blue seas.

  3. Rambling Rose, I have only reblogged a couple of times and I just used the ‘reblog’ button. Maybe the problem is that I posted this from my “Evernote” work book? Not a Word document. Thanks for trying and sorry I cant help… I’m slightly technically challenged 🙂
