The Music and Life of Harry Chapin

Harry Chapin has been a great influence on my life - on my feelings and beliefs. To his legion of fans throughout this world his music, songs, lyrics, poetry and way of life has been an inspiration. I intend using this site to give some details about Harry and his life, provide links to some excellent Harry Chapin sites and also to reproduce his lyrics with my own comments.

I emphasise that the comments made on the songs are my own personal views and explain what the particular songs mean to me.

Below are my first few songs, a lengthy biography, my general writing and also correspondence I had with Harry when he was alive.
