Autumn This Year

This  song popped into my head today and can’t seem to find it’s way out.

I recall the first time I heard Steve play this live. I want to say it was the Fall of 2004 or 2005 and Alicia and I  went to see him play at the now closed, 1910 Winery in Thompson, GA.  After that night, it became one of our favorite places to visit for several years.

Take a minute from posting your political, anger-filled  messages on FB and relax a few minutes.

Ba da ba da ba da ba da ba da ba da
Autumn this year is gonna break my heart
Leaves start fallin and the feelin starts
Days turn shorter and the nights turn cool
And children walk home from school
And children walk home from school

Ba da ba da ba da

Blue skys clearer when that old mill stream
Flows cold water down a clean pipe dream
Airs like apples in the mild day sun
When summertimes race has run
When summertimes race has run

CHORUS
It gets in your throat
That melancholy mood
Its bound to make you sadder
But its good soul food
Uh huh, uh huh, uh huh . . .

Round moons yellow and its gold light glows
Bare, black branches in a blind breeze blow
Old folk fables tend to talk like wine
And younger times haunt my mind

Halloween comes and its the last sweet night
Everything changes in the next days light
One tough cricket sings his last lone song
And wintertime comes on strong
And wintertime comes on strong
