I always assumed Willie Nelson wrote this song, but I was mistaken. The song was actually written by Johnny Christopher, Mark James and Wayne Carson ca. 1971.
My take on this splendid Dylan classic.
Still had a bit of residual Irish tune-age in my system from this weekend. This is a cover of a traditional tune made popular by Irish singer/songwriter Paul Brady and covered many, many times. Hope you like and enjoy!
Simply another awesome tune that I have had on my iPod for years now and thought I’d like to try and cover.
I recently heard this haunting tune by Jason Isbell and it spoke to me so personally that I had to cover it.
One of mine from the HSAOK (Heartland Songwriters Association of Kentucky) showcase at Lettersong Studio in Louisville, KY.
Six-o-five I’m bound to this road again to nowhere new
Lost then found my thoughts tend to linger on a life with you
Hearts lived wild and free
Often won’t agree
Pictures, rows of threes, somewhat organized upon a shelf
Contradictory words often spoken just to spite myself
(But) Truth shines in your eyes
Sparkling with the sky
Wishing for the day that I come back to you
A few more things out here I have to do
While all I have,
Is just this photograph
The paper ages but it never seems you do
There to remind me how I’m always missing you
February cold when midwest winters come around
Feel this getting old while time so eagerly marches on
Always on my mind
Never left behind
The days are tough, the nights are long without you dear
After awhile the reason’s never been so clear
It’s you my friend
I long to see again
The moment I beheld you was the moment I was yours
A swing and miss at first but damn it’s turned out good
Always know you’ll have the best true part of me
The past is past now have to let it be
The tide will turn
And turning bring us ’round again
You know wherever I go I’m never very far away
Just reach out now and know the love I’m feeling every day
So take a breath and celebrate the making of the day
The dance has started and the band is on the stage
Instead of heartache there’s this feeling that remains…
