Rossington Collins Band – Tashauna

From their 1981 album, This is The Way. The song was a tribute to Ronnie Van Zant and John Lennon. The song did not chart but was played on AOR stations all across the U.S.

Tashauna

He called himself a free bird, they pulled him from the sky
He called himself a sharpshooter, by the gun he died
Well, he called himself a lonely man, then he took his life
But everyone of them, was one of a kind
Tashauna, Tashauna, where are you now
Tashauna, Tashauna, one of a kind
She called herself his woman, she called herself his wife
She gave him love and children, she gave the man her life
Well, he called himself a strong man as he left them all behind
I’ve yet to see him shed a tear, he is one of a kind
One of a kind, yeah, one of a kind
You know he is, he is one of a kind, yeah
Tashauna, Tashauna, where are you now
Tashauna, Tashauna, one of a kind
Now I believe that every man can choose his destiny
If you believe that you are weak, then weak you’ll surely be
Oh, but if you live for love and truth, and live for peace of mind
Just hold fast to your dreams friend, that’s just what you’ll find
One of a kind, yeah, one of a kind
All of us, everyone of us is one of kind, yeah
Tashauna, Tashauna, where are you now
Tashauna, Tashauna, one of a kind
Tashauna, Tashauna, where are you now
Dear Sir Lennon, where are you now?
He was one of a kind
You are one of a kind
All of us, one of a kind

    1. I heard it in 1981 on the radio but I did not know it was also about John Lennon until this morning. I got the album in a bunch of cutout albums I ordered back then and I ended up giving the album to Mark.
