Bret McCormick Many years ago, after you handed me a Texas Water cassette, I listened to it and this song was the first one that totally grabbed my attention.

The guitar is great on that song James…is it a vocoder or a phaser or wah or something like that..stereo vocoder maybe….makes it sound like an synthetic organ type sound…matches the theme…disguised…unreal..very clever.. Matthew

Listening to your songs evokes imagery of being a lonely and mysterious character stuck in an old dusty town.

And ALL of that… I remember when my boys first came to CA. They were late teens, and early 20s. I took them to see Sunset cliffs. If you don’t know it, it’s easy to imagine: a sweeping vista of sky, sea and pelicans on a postcard. We got out, walked around… they said nothing, somber faces, withdrawn. “I step out of my car/ I don’t know where we are…” It seemed the oddest thing at the time, but I knew this is what they were feeling. This song carries the magnificence of arrival in a beautiful new world. Or when my mother drove my sister & I from OK to CA to join my dad during the Korean War. Somewhere in New Mexico along Rt 66 we pulled over to sleep for a few hours. I woke up at dawn before anyone else, to discover the windshield of the car was filled with an enormous glowing ball. At age 6, I had never seen anything like this sun. I hardly knew what it was. This song was written for such moments. A beautiful, beautiful song. And those guitars in the middle are liquid light. Thank you for thinking of me in relation to this. I will always feel a tiny bit it belongs to me.

Delightul! Notes of honey on that guitar solo! Lyrics are a poem. The pipes coming back at the end, haunting. Something very Irish about this.

LOVE this! Love all that’s going on dramaticaly in the sound track. Love the use of text from the book. Love the driving rat-a-tat rhythm. Very creative. Almost like a movie! :)

Good rendition I am sure Teddy Roosevelt would be proud. I sang this song every day at elementary school for 6 years.

GEEZUS, Jim, you keep freaking me out w these amazing songs!! So many styles, and this is my very favorite… until the next fav comes along!! Great lyrics, love the back up vocals, guitar solo, and hope you don’t mind me sayin’ a bit of a JJ Cale/ Tulsa Sound vibe by my ear. Mesmerizing. Gwyn Henry

Love it that he lived (has lived?) so long, long enought to enjoy this song as much has he seems to have, and sing it in duets with you. What a joy. And I love to song, too. Our shared roots and Red Dirt!

This brings tears to my eyes. The imagery couldn’t be better for spreading empathy.
