Audio Postcard – Country Home

Song suggestion: Country Home, Bill Magill
Drink suggestion: Tecate beer (in the red can with twist of lime)

Country Home is the most recent upload to a compilation of new songs I am recording this year. The SoundCloud player below allows you to listen without leaving this page. The following url will take you to my growing compilation of demos titled Balm of Gilead.

I grew up in a country home in central Pennsylvania, poised at the edge of Appalachia and surrounded by dairy farms. Safe, serene, and as thrilling as a glass of warm milk. The sweet smell of summer manure, I remember it well.

Do you remember that first permanent leave from family and home? Perhaps you were off to college or your first real job, or perhaps the pirate inside decided the world was ripe for tasting. That moment of pulling away, watching your childhood home slip into a memory and realizing that from now forward you will always be visiting.  In the summer of 1978 my girlfriend and I made the drive from Newport, Pennsylvania to Waco, Texas in a ’67 convertible Firebird held together with muffler tape and a lot of prayer. Every possession we owned was crammed into the back seat or strapped to the trunk lid. She lasted 3 months (I was not easy company) but I had the great fortune of making incredible college friends who helped me survive that initial jump from the nest. In the end we all do.

This song goes out to them and all the friends who pull us through and give our lives color.
