I know I'm in for a treat when I see a new Tommyad post!! ALWAYS SOOOOO GOOD!!! Great song all around! Love the heavy snare sound throughout.....just the right sound and processing!! Some great lyrics throughout. Love this:

Back in the day
Before it all went to hell
We wrapped ourselves in love
And wore it so well

GREAT STUFF Tommy!! Take care. Greg

And that's something special to convey to a listener, I feel. Thanks for sharing this and sincerest congratulations.
That is a terrific review. Thank you much,Tom

Marty, the thought of cigarettes never entered my mind. I, like many of us I’m sure have put that type of smoke far in the past. Although a good cigar does keep away the mosquitoes. As I recall she wasn’t a cigar smoker either. Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate the comments coming from a fine musician as yourself, Tom

Tommy,

Magnetic from the start—really crisp, fulsome sound. Terrific write, great lines throughout—love that pre-chorus (both the writing, but also the melody that goes with—great lead in to the chorus). Nothing not to like here . . . just a really excellent country tune. Impressive tune.

All my best

Deej

I like the phrasing, especially the I still smell smoke.

Favorite line: Before I knew it she was in my past.

I really enjoyed listening!

Tommy,

This is powerful and great! Well done!

I remember my first girlfriend. I still smell smoke too, but I think it was a different kind of smoke.

Merry Christmas.

You threw it all out there ...
Great vocals, write, instrumental performances and your always high production values with those RT's, loops and TA.

Cool to hear the mando in there too.

We wrapped ourselves in love

Janice wanted to single that out as it flowed so well...

Thanks for all that. Reviews like this make it easy to continue this creative journey. Your support means everything,Tom

Olfactory reminiscence is a powerful thing.
I woke from a dream yesterday with the smell of smoke in my head.
I blame you.
The pre chorus & chorus really work a treat building and lifting.
Ace Tommy, ace.
