my answer "new orleans" gained me 2 tickets for the chris smither show last night at the grey eagle from the sweet blog ashvegas.
i love his songwriting. the lyrics ring true. i love his guitar playing. his fingers are confident.
"Leave the Light on"
If I were young again, I’d pay attention To that little-known dimension That tastes of endless time It's just like water, it runs right through our fingers But the flavor of it lingers Like a rich, red wine In those days we were single – and we lived 'em one by one Now we hardly see ‘em – they don’t walk - they run But I got plenty left I’ve set my sight on Don’t wait up - Leave the light on I’ll be – home - soon I’ve never seen my life in such a hurry - But if I start to worry – I get left behind It’s like a party, but you don’t get invitations – and there’s just one destination You better be on time For years we rhymed in couplets - And we sang ‘em two by two Now we hardly rhyme at all – but here’s a few And if they hurt, there’s bullets left to bite on Don’t wait up - Leave the light on - I’ll be – home - soon That drummer in my head needs inspiration There’s a lack of syncopation – the holes need to align. It’s just so hard to leave these cages that we think in By stages we just sink in - to a slow decline For years we lived in waltz time – and we danced three by three Now it’s hard to dance, but if you'll stick with me – We’ve got what we need to spend the night on - Don’t wait up - Leave the light on - I’ll be – home - soon These races that we’ve run were not for glory - No moral to this story – We run for peace of mind But the race we’re running now is never-ending. Since space and time are bending, There’s no finish line - But I'll live to be a hundred - I was born in ’44 - 32 to go, but I ain’t keepin’ score - I've been left for dead before - but I still fight on – Don’t wait up
Leave the light on I’ll be home soon I been left for dead before - but I still fight on Don’t wait up
Leave the light on I’ll be home soon
the show ended with this cover "killin' the blues"
live music is best

that's longer than i've been alive!
what are they drinking here? bourbon? cranberry juice?
my dad's tuxedo is brown.
my mom is barely 21 years old.
this is what weddings looked like in 1972. patterns, accordions.
here's wishing the lovely couple 40 more years of wedded bliss!
