My Heart Stays With You
this song was written around February of 1996. I was playing with The New Tradition at the time. We wrote this song all together in the van driving to the next show.
I always felt like it was a new direction and was opening up a different sound for us. But by April Ken and I had left the band and it never got recorded.
I had written down the lyrics and chord progressions and had it in my book 'o songs.
When Pat and I were going through songs for this project
he and I wrote a bridge for it and re-worked the changes a bit. I'm glad we finally got to record it, it not only reminds me of missing your sweetheart on the road. But, it takes me back to a time when I was having the time of my life playing, singing, and writing with my brothers.
