Story Behind the Song

Back in the '60's I was caught up in the great folk music scare; was a member of the "The New Folk Four", the "BMW Group", and also played guitar and upright bass for a few other aspiring groups. This tune is a bow to that tradition, though it doesn't have a "Hook" and is hopefully more contemporary. Bill

Broadjam Member Reviews

Very nice story song. Like the guitar work. Has an easy-going smooth recording and lush, spacey arrangement. Very unique melody that draws the listener in and captures my attention and keeps it. A very nice song for a movie or TV show with it's free-form, free-flowing atmosphere. Nice job, thanks for sharing......

    - Chet Nichols

I like the guitar introduction and the way the song starts - the sound of the drums are very good as well - I also like how the keyboards mellow the song out, very cool lead guitar too. Sounds a little like Steely Dan.

Short Story

Music & Lyrics by: Bill Dake
Copyright 2014 billdakemusic ASCAP

Calispell and Abilene
Pictures in a magazine
Places he could go
Faces he could get to know
Gathers up his travelin' gear
Scratches a note, then disappears
Down a quiet road
Collar up in the morning cold

Met the girl in early spring
Didn't promise anything
Thought his sails were set
No commitment, no regrets
But, time and wind they have a way
Of warming hearts that tend to stray
He'd been lost, but now was found
So he anchored himself to some solid ground
Swore he'd always be around

Seasons changed,
Soon the leaves were gone
Her sweet magic lost
To that old wanderin' song
Knew he should stay
But he had to move on

Instrumental verse

Glances back, just one more look
Pages closed on another book
Hoping he left her
More than he took

In the end, he'll settle down
Find himself some sleepy town
That's where he'll alight
And spend his final days and nights
With dreams of that girl who would hold him tight
Who whispered those words that seemed so right
And he'll curse that morning that he took flight.....
