Song Description

I lived on a prominent hillside on an ice-age river bed in Kansas. It was a broad and sweeping landmass that snaked thru eastern Kansas. I used to climb the hill on a regular basis to enjoy the dramatic view and play my guitar. Needless to say, that place inspired a lot of songs.

Broadjam Member Reviews

This is an extremely cool and original song by an artist with a unique and fresh sound and a killer guitar style that I really dig! The song transports me to a mountain, to a garden, to an old oak tree with initials carved...there are some pretty vivid word pictures here. (seeds cure the weeds - great lyric) Enduring stones: reminds me of some of the hikes I've taken in the Smokies. The voice is both haunting and pleasing, inviting the listener into his world. There are some artists that are great to listen to, even if you don't totally understand what they are singing about the first time. This is one of them. I would definitely like to hear more.

    - Kate Carpenter

Great guitar parts, vibrant and intense vocals, intense all acoustic song. I hear interesting chords.

If I gave you love
Would you give it back?
Not in the condition you received it in
But in what you have and lack
A love expands a season
If it makes you lose your bearings
Take these seeds
To cure the weeds
That are growing
Take these stones
They will endure
The weathering
Freedom is a word
We seem to feel it
Love is a word
We seem to use
We go through the motions
And we don?t understand the words
We go through the motions
And we don?t understand their words
Carved my name on old, old tree
Along with a hundred others
Sat this woman on my knee
And she used me for her covers
Carved my name on old, old tree
Up on lumbering mountain
I can see
I can wish where I can be
Up on lumbering mountain
Up on lumbering mountain
