|COMMENTS & NOTES
|the Merle Travis classic -- blues version
with Herb Ellis on guitar, Kenny Pearson on keyboards.
You load 16 tons and what do you get?
Another day older and you're deeper in debt.
|check out the fiddle part
Do some sailin' with good folks around you,
And life will be worth living everyday.
|a love song to the Saint Lawrence
Je t'aime mon fleuve Saint Laurent.
|country/swing with a singable chorus -- so sing it.
You just let me know when you want it,
And I will give my lovely lovin' to you.
|I call this one my "Joni Mitchell" song -- played in open tuning.
Free from the chains of need, the rush of speed,
In my mind I'll take a ferry ride, with the tide...
|San Diego Freeway
|Country/rock with sounds for everyone.
There were hawks riding thermals in the California sky.
|To A Friend
|I wrote this one when I was 17 years old.
The hour has come for us to rhyme.
|You Took the Time
|with a great sax-man.
You took the time to tell me what I mean to you.
