This is a cowrite with my good friend John Delk, he has some great songs that he allowed Corey and I to record. THis is a different take than John had originally wrote, hope he likes it. It is different territory for us also. Started as a country song now i have a hard time figuring what it is. Enjoy Cliff BIAB was drums, bass,piano. It gave me the groove for sure.

Cliff

A nice jangly country rock tune with some tasteful playing. A good set of lyrics and nice vocals and harmonies.
Thoroughly enjoyable.

Peter

Very nice! Has some south-of-the-border. Tejana, maybe? Don't know the word, but that's the flavor I get. Lovely guitar licks and a sweet, dusty voice delivering a well-wrought lyric. Much enjoyed.

Really nice work on this smile It has a nice, smooth yet rough around the edges feel to it. Some really nice playing here, and I thought the vocals fit impeccably too, and the lyrics helped it along great as well.

Thanks for sharing!

Nice!

We like the, as Peter said, jangly guitar -- gives it a slight Byrds hint.

Well done!

J&B

PS Hey, if you don't know what to call it then it's Americana smile

I really like that this song had a bit of roughness to it. It made the song feel incredibly genuine. Thanks for sharing!

Cliff (& friends),

A good listen. Loved the title!

As Bud noted it has a Byrds flavor - or even a bit of Mavericks...

Gets ya singing along by the end...

Another great tune from you Clifton! To me it's a mix of Dwight Yoakam-Jimmy Buffet-Dire Straits and it is highly enjoyable! Thanks, Torrey

Thank You Deryk, I always appreciate your feed back. THis started as a country song that my friend John Delk was writing, but, when i started playing the guitar thru my amp and had BIAB style going, it just went in its own direction, and I felt it strongly, epecially my my my HA, I think that may be the best part of the song, and the Knople guitar licks.

Hey there cliftond, Fantastic choice of instrumentation on this. The arrangement is wonderful to the ears and a solid key signature choice. That guitar tone is very warm! Great work on the vocals too. Well done!
