Sweet Bunyore

Life has been cruel to me
And I have longed for a shoulder to lean on
I have nursed much insomnia

There's been nothing worth keepin' for a dream!
I have seen the coldness of the city boys
And the lies of the city girls
O the pain of street children
Perhaps it's time to go right to the start.

Sweet Bunyore Do you remember me?
And if I come Will you receive me?
Sweet Bunyore Have you a place for me?
Or am I just A child of fate!?

I hear the mooing of the cows
As they give their scanty milk away
I can smell the evening fires
As the clouds begin to swell again
How I long to hear your rivers flow
And the morning birds begin their praises
As they join the whole creation
In the mighty song to the King of kings.

Sweet Bunyore Do you remember me?
And if I come Will you receive me?
Sweet Bunyore Have you a place for me?
Or am I just A child of fate!?

There's a place where the heart may find the
answers And the body find its rest in the evening
‘Tis the story of a tired man
Lost in a world that is lost!!!

Sweet Bunyore Do you remember me?
And if I come Will you receive me?
Sweet Bunyore Have you a place for me?
Or am I just A child of fate!?

Sweet Bunyore Do you remember me?
And if I come Will you receive me?
Sweet Bunyore Have you a place for me?
Or am I just A child of fate!?

Sweet Bunyore Do you remember me?
And if I come Will you receive me?

Story Behind the Song From Reuben Kigame
"Sweet Bunyore" is the third song on my album "Never Alone: Kenya's tribute to country". Written in 1999 while on a ministry trip in California. It was recorded two years later at New Life Sound studios, Goshen, Indiana and released officially about a year later in Kenya. I wanted an authentic Country sound and so looked for a country band and three great vocalists that were signed by New Life and got what I wanted. The song is a deep, nostalgic personal recollection of how going back to God and tracing your steps back to your roots and simplicity in life is the answer for loneliness, meaning and purpose. Acts 17:25-26 says, " From one man He made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands". I am proud to be from Kenya and Bunyore
