Tom,
There`s something so genuine in your lyrics- you could milk the regret here but don`t; love that opening verse!
The ringing guitar coming out of the chorus is sweet and the whole production a benchmark for everything done right... not bad for a guy with partial hearing loss!

Hello, Tom

Powerful country tune!
The melody of chorus clause is really good.
The Pedal Steel you play by yourself is so nice.
It's splendid that you can play pedal steel.
Super vocal and big drums!
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

I haven't listen to this yet, but had to stop in to say...

Tom is the LAST person needing any advice on how to mix drums. His are ALWAYS mixed at a truly pro level. The best around.
Thanks for having my back little bro!

Tom, when you sing we always feel that you are “the” person in the song. That you have lived the story - not that you are just relating it. Janice mentioned the word “conviction.” Yep.

This is one of those few tunes that take you on a journey, albeit a vignette, of a person’s life that seems so remarkably real. It’s not the least bit contrived due in large part to your vocal and lyric.

And there’s the always present high, very high, production values. And the vocal and instrumental never disappoint.

Janice says she will have the melody in her head all day. And that’s a good thing she also said. smile

I definitely really dig what you did with the mandolins! It gave this song a really neat sound, and it has that classic country twang!

Good job. Thanks for sharing.

"She’s got first hand knowledge bout the way I used to be
It’s not her problem it’s my legacy"

"It’s almost like it happened to someone just like me"

Terrific lines. Excellent write throughout.

A typical Tom Adams tight production. Snappy drums. Sweet steel in all the right spots. Nice vocals and harmonies, sitting just right. Nice guitar touches.

Another in a long line of hits.

Herb said it simply, and said it right!! LOVE THIS!!! Your lyrics are so natural. It is so hard to write in an original way with all of the millions of songs that have been written. But, you make it sound effortless Tom. This is another gem!! Take care. Greg
Greg, Thanks for the great comments, Tom

Super backing, perfect pedal steel and your vocals just keep getting better and better.

A classic.

Thanks ROG! I call this Appalachian Honky-Tonk. Some might say Alternative Country or Americana. Glad you liked it, Tom

I could listen to this song 1000 times and still want to hear it 1000 more. It's because it feels right to me. I love that in a song.

Nice Guy? That all depends on who you ask! Caaron, I appreciate all these wonderful comments, Thank You, Tom

Very good work on this one Tommy.
So melodic, top notch chord progression and the transition to the chorus is great.
