Very nice! I like the way you’ve composed this song; it is musically expressive of the central metaphor. Jenni Mansfield Peal
Wow! Beautiful lyrics and accompanying music.
I love the way this song moves the chords fluidly, appropriate to the subject. Very pretty! And I have felt the winds of change blow through me, as well as atmospheric winds, so I like the metaphor.

What a pretty but melancholy song. Truer words never spoken. Such a poignant visual.
I like what I am listening to…..
Beautiful and Heartfelt song!
Lovely tight harmonies James. Oh, so lonely and beautiful.
This poem is a master piece.
I like it.
Florencia Di Concilio It’s not the first time someone writes me a song, though it is the very first time I actually like it. I love the song, to tell you the truth! You’re awesome James Michael Taylor! You made my day. ❤️
Laurie Callinan - Its very beautiful. Love the line about the garbage trying to sleep.
Connie Pittman Ramsey Visually sorrowful and heartfelt…. Thank you James, once again, for going where most dare not go
Nice tribute. Thoughtful and to the point. She will be missed.
A beautiful tribute, James. We miss you too!!
This is one of the VERY best songs I have EVER heard. And I do NOT mean it is one of the very best JMT songs I have ever heard… I MEAN it is one of the very best songs I have heard… EVER… period! And this is one of the VERY best albums that I have EVER owned! And I am 64 damn years old! So I have owned a lot of very damn good albums! As a 64 year old Baby boomer, I have heard a lot of very very good songs and a lot of very good albums… and still… this song still makes me cry. Thank you, so very very much, James Michael Taylor, for your music! Your music has meant a lot to me in my Life!
Yes, It made me stop and think.
If I lived near you I would want to be part of this tribe.
Captures a Time…
First, the guitar sound is amazing. This friendly little project is is special in so many ways.
You asked me who Jack Hardy was…He was a friend of mine, now gone. Beloved by many. This was a bit of teasing him, imitating how he sang. He and I shared a mutual respect. The first time I met him I was sitting under an awning at the Kerrville Folk Festival and he pulled up a chair and said, “Sing me a song.” We were buddies from then on. The day he would arrive at Kerrville was always joyfully anticipated, not just because he made such great spigot. Here is a link to more about him:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Hardy_(singer-songwriter)
That bass is awesome! Great build!
This is beautiful.
Wonderful, James. Thank you for singing the songs in your heart. This world needs them.Summer Loraine Russell
Mighty powerful feelings of aloneness and independence, songs and songwriting/singing a perfect fit! Keith Haas
This immediately puts me in a mythical meadow with fairies and crickets and lightning bugs at dusk…
This is such a solid track it could go a dozen ways.
Also, thank you for your comment. I had a 7th line clear up until my final mix when I realized how useless it was…your response verifies my thot. The song was start to finish this afternoon.Thanks again.
“The years can kill your spirit. The years you can’t explain
The years that simply melt away… like mascara in the rain.”
Damn… what great words. JMT words.
Words that paint a picture… on the canvas of my spirit. `
Crisp and crystal clear!
Perfect for your voice. “aging Silverado…” “so, I don’t say a word, my order is heard.”
Love your voice on this. Like 50s American pop song.
