LJ, for several years you were playing a song with the chorus that included "....road song echoed down through the wheel well..." and refrains of "...put a 1/4 in the belly of my beat up olds" "with more creases in the body than a map has folds" What was that song? Where can I find the lyrics? who wrote it? I still remember how to play it but can only hum 99% of it. Many Thanks, Pete Cadmus
Yo, Pete. Good to hear from you.
That song is: ROAD SONG, by Stephan George. Back when I met him (at Kerrville) he
Was living down in Arizona.
I got a chance to hear his version recently and was surprised to hear the way I've put a little
Twist in the feel. It always gets me, how songs morph over time and through
I hope you guys are healthy and thriving.
Just a note of appreciation. I listened to Johnsmith's version of Box Elder and he suggested I check out your music. I looked for you on YouTube and was delighted to hear your work. Thanks, PaulLJ Booth responded on 04/23/2013 Next question
LJ, Natalie here, from Austin. I haven't seen or heard hide nor hair of you for many years now, but your music remains in my heart as clearly as if it were yesterday that I first heard you.
I hope you are well and happy. I am still making recordings. I know what you mean about the live versions. They are like gems, natural, like music is supposed to be.
I am recording new ones down here as well, some live one time takes in the studio and others with my trusty metronome. I don't know if you ever go to Kerrville anymore. I quit camping in soaring temperatures back in 2005. I am submitting my new songs this year to see if I can get on the big stage.
You take care. I knit. I always think of your YARNS song when I am knitting. It rings more true today than it did when I was much younger.
Hope to see you down the songwriting road.
