Still don't know why i covered this song for my first CD back in 2000 with so much tunes out there in the world, but it had caught me and never released me again fully from its grip after hearing it the first time on the John Denver album 'Windsong'.
I arranged it for my taste of depth and meaning by stretching the bars of every chord to double time. So, it's get really deep and moody. I recorded it one day somewhere in the early 1990s and it somehow (the grip, yeah !) it ended up as track number 9 on my first solo-CD 'Just as i am' , released in 2000.
The album's version (and therefore this one, too) is a 100 % home-recorded demo. No improving has ever been done afterwards. It's just me and my guitar.
From the 'Just as i am'-linernotes: "I first heard this song onn an album by John Denver called 'Windsong'. Yes, the one with 'Calypso' on it. To me, that's the only album he has made which is a classic start to finsh. You have the right to disagree. Anyway, i stretched the chords; or let's say, i doubled the number of bars for each of the chords to be played in this song, trying to give it more depth and meaning. It's one of my personal favourites on this CD now as it is. "
The picture in the video was taken by my late friend Jim McNealon during my performance at The State Theatre in St.Petersburg, Florida back in 2003.
