Here is my latest song,   Old Country Songs,    played on my Martin D-28.  

Sorry, no banjo in this one.

Lyrics:

Wooden Chair by the window
Gibson on my lap
And the time I spend strumming
Is never coming back
The sun is shining on me
Evening won’t be long
I’m living in the city
Singing old country songs

Well my mind tends to wander
Round this time of day
All the way back to my old country ways
Where the wood stove would crackle
Against the north wind
Our thoughts were as warm as the house we were in

I left this old city far behind
When me and my sweetheart
Had a country frame of mind
And we left with our youth
For uneven ground
You can’t imagine
All the things that we found

Everything keeps evolving
It’s never quite clear
How we left long ago
Just to find ourselves here
It’s when that afternoon sunlight
Is shining on me
I seem to wander
Back to the country

Greg, You've done some great tunes since I've known you. But this one my friend is positively my favorite.

Greg, you know I'm already a fan. This song is so rich in every aspect. I love the writing, the tone, the delivery in your voice. I believe it is my favorite from you now. Well done!
