This was an idea brought to me by Leslie awhile back. She told me at the beginning of the day that she had something she thought I was going to like. I immediately was consumed with what imagery we could get in the song and I think we managed to find a melody, for the mood the song title seemed to suggest. Once it started taking shape, I was immediately transported back to my East Kentucky childhood and I’m sure Leslie was taken back to her Texas roots and her early years.
I thought of the innocence I had back then, now gone forever and how I was so much of the land, hills and woods around my old country home, that I really felt like the trees might know my name. Lord knows I climbed enough of them and although I’m sure they are grown over by now, I had my initials carved in several of their trunks. Thank you Leslie for this one. It is special to me.
