Video #1: Here is a video of me playing "Ballad of Serenity."
"TheBallad of Serenity" was written by Joss Whedon and performed by Sonny Rhodes. It is also known as the Theme to Firefly. Firefly was a short-lived series on the Fox television station. The song has been covered by a band called The Henry Kaiser Band and can be heard in the closing title music of Firefly's movie adaption, Serenity. The theme is also used as the chorus to folk band Escape Key in their Firefly tribute entitled Mal's Song.
The Ballad of Serenity Take my love, take my land Take me where I cannot stand I don't care, I'm still free You can't take the sky from me Take me out to the black Tell them I ain't coming back Burn the land and boil the sea You can't take the sky from me There's no place I can be Since I've found Serenity But you can't take the sky from me
