Thread Name: Country of origin of these songs please!
Subject: RE: Country of orgin of these songs please!
Oh, fer crying out loud. And it is always played in the key of D, the tonic chord representing the Holy Ghost, the subdominant (G) representing the Son, and the dominant chord representing the Father, obviously. The song includes a relative minor (in this key it is Bm) to represent the Flesh. The relative minor dominant (Em) is used to provide overtones of the Devil. The song thus represents how temptation undermines one in his quest for grace. Very simple once you figure it out....
