I wrote and recorded this about a year ago and just dug it out. This is me and my singing partner, Deb Carlson. I had just taught her the song and this is the first take with out an obvious flub. One mic, two voices, one guitar. Hope to re-record and track this, but I like this simple version, too.

Thanks for sharing John, another terrific piece. Harmony vocals are sweet here, the organic vibe you are able to tap into is overwhelming, my hat is off.

Very solid
I really like it, particularly the guitar accompaniment. Your voice is a near double of James Taylor's. Definitely worthy of a CD.

Great tune
A James Taylor type of thing. Great piece of song writing.

A really tasty performance of an excellent song. Well done! I like it simple and uncluttered, it fits the sentiment. Beautiful harmony and your voices go together very well. My wife says to tell you she likes it too!
