Album Notes
"Are You Listening Uncle Sam?" is a New release by Jim Covington and Martie Echito.
You will be seeing it later this month on You Tube and hearing it across the net and radio and TV stations.

The frustration of being out of work. Asking Uncle Sam..... 'ARE YOU LISTENING?'.... do you hear our plight?....Do you even care? ALL governmental officials... STOP what you are doing and take a moment and LISTEN to what we are telling you... Stop the "Business As Usual" power struggle and unshackle the regulations that are prohibiting businesses from hiring. WE NEED JOBS !

Having to watch our family members and friends who are out of work... barely scraping by... some having to be helped by parents just to stay afloat, is unbearable at times. Unable to buy a house, put food on the table for the family, pay their bills, in debt and having to live on credit cards, not just in our hometowns, but all across the nation and around the world. The lyrics were inspired by the conversations... overheard by us... when people were talking with their families, friends, neighbors. Seems the elected officials in our government, regardless of political affiliation, are NOT listening to what people are telling them.

Lyrics and Music
Jim Covington & Martie Echito

Well, we're sending you this e-mail, you don't seem to understand,
Folks are out here hurtin', in what once was the promised land.
We elected you to help us, when we stood and cast our vote,
Seems we were mistaken, hope you're taking note.

We need jobs to feed our families, we need jobs to pay our bills,
We need jobs to fix this country, to repair all of it's ills.
Are you listening? Are you listening?
Are you listening.... Uncle Sam?
Sincerely, every child, woman, and man.

We're discouraged, tired, and beaten down, so frustrated, just plain mad,
We lost our homes, our hope, our spirit, and dreams that we once had.
It's your empty words and speeches, stop playin' it RIGHT or LEFT,
No one will hire in this political mire, to our voices you've gone deaf.


Stop and listen to what we say, walk in our shoes for just one day,
Unshackle businesses so they know where they stand, Are you listening?

2012-08-09 top-notch production. vox and bgv are right there in your face. really good job and they lyrics take a page from our current state of affairs. Enjoyed.

2012-08-10 Good solid tune. Great job on the mix and production side. Like the vocal. Nice piece of work.

2012-08-10 OK. I am the odd one out ( but that s not unusual ) The chorus didnt lift for me, melodically. Its a universal message and its contemporary.

2012-08-12 Super super song
Great production.........well done guys

2012-08-14 Yeah the message is the same all over the world, unfortunately 'no one listens' [which is the title of my 2nd last song on the ramp]...a good song..well done.

2012-08-17 Love how the intro & outro is recognizable, but not exact - very cool... GREAT song!
