Hi Nels and Marinus,

I can really relate to this song. I remember my parents playing this song (from Earnest Tubb days) and many a band I used to play with did that song. It's a beautiful arrangement, nice chord changes and great lyrics. What more can you ask for?
Thanks again for posting.

Nels and Marinu,

Writing and creating a song story around another great song, as Josie mentioned.
Really great.

Your story wound around the other song was so nice.
I enjoy your voice, easy, gentle and actually a story telling type feeling to it.

Thanks for sharing,
