When I was a little girl, I was given some 1950's sheet music to the song "Mockingbird Hill" which I tried to work out on the piano. I didn't have much musical training, so it took me a while and I don't think I got the timing right. However, the tune beguiled me, and over the years I sang many different words of my own to the tune. Eventually, I chose a quote from the Bible for each musical phrase, all of which had some personal meaning to me. I first played it for others on a ukulele in Texas in 1997.
