Cryin’ For Me (Wayman’s Song)

26 Oct, 2009

Keith releases his single, Cryin’ For Me (Wayman’s Song), featuring; Arthur Thompson, Marcus Miller and Dave Coz, from his album, American Ride. Keith wrote the song as a tribute to his friend,¬†Wayman Tisdale who passed away.

I reeled around there for two days in a stupor. He was a great guy with a charismatic smile, and the closest thing to Jesus I’ve ever met. There’s a line in the song that says, ‘You showed me how to live.’ He was a perfect, perfect human. I got up Sunday morning, realized I was just going to have to face it all – couldn’t believe that he was gone. We had gotten really, really close. I was the first one he would call when he would come out of surgery. He passed away on May 15. Anyway, I got up Sunday morning, called his cell phone to hear his voice one more time, I grabbed my guitar and sat down and wrote this song, and went in and put it on the album.
