I was away from my computer yesterday when I posted. The style I used, Justice Classic Mandolin Folk, is from the Xtra Style Pak 1. I added the Dobro soloist.

Funny tune!! I like the playful sarcasm. The music works well for this type of lyric. Closing in on 52! Enjoyed! Take care. Greg

Fred, you struck a chord with this tune that resonates with so many people this time of year who are lonely. May your song help us remember them. Great job on it by the way. It sounds great all the way around. Thanks, Torrey.

Seasonal Affective Disorder. SAD Wintertime alone will do it for me. Feel like I need to lie under a grow light smile

At least it stimulated a fine song! 50 now. Wow!

We've enjoyed the run.
