Song Description

This comes from the "Live" CD, "Black & White" recorded back on 9/11/71 in Kansas City, MO at Cowtown Ballroom. It is the only surviving recording of Chet playing performing "live" The album showcases his varied songwriting, vocals, guitar work & piano.

Story Behind the Song

This is a floating, poetic love song. No real chorus, more a free form song. Features a strong vocal, dynamic guitar work and vivid scenes.

Broadjam Member Reviews

This is an impressive song. The lyrics are beautiful, I love the repetitions, the guitar playing is wonderful, and when one gets towards the end of the song, the guitar takes over and that is really wonderful too. It is a treat. There is an aura of other worldly winsomeness in the words and the music, I want to hear it again.

    - Birthe Noer Myers

Has a nice hunting feel to it, a hint of David Crosy. Strong guitar part keeps it driving nicely. Vocal is well suited to the vibe of the song.

    - Jeff Ashbaker

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
