Song Description

The search for somebody who has left the warm nest and flown into the world's open jaws. And all because country living was too calm for her.

Nice traditional sounding folk song. Very pleasant listen.
Nicely enhanced by the backing vocal! Definitely bring to mind a different time and space. Classic Folk. The vocal in some spots reminded me of Pete Seeger.

    - Jeff Ashbaker

I really enjoyed the subtle yet driving guitar work. Very talented guitar player. The recording really captures the song and gives it a feel. I thought the harmonies were fantastic and helped get through the chorus. Low harmonies are much harder in my opinion and these are perfectly executed. My favorite part was when the instruments dropped out near the end, gave it a pub song feel.

Lyrics

Calm country living
Cool country air
Old waters flow on and on
Calm country living
Too calm for her
Now she's gone.

Calm country living
Cool country ways
Let you know just where you are
Calm country living
Counting the days
She's gone far.

When the warm nest's unwinding
When the early bird's flown
Into the world's open jaws
When it's needles and haystacks
And you're on your own
Clutch at straws.

Bright city living
Brisk city air
He looks for her all over town
Bright city living
But she's not there
He goes down.

Bright city living
Brisk city blues
Hurting the soles of his feet
Bright city living
Leaving no clues
To her street.

When the warm nest's unwinding
When the early bird's flown
Into the world's open jaws
When it's needles and haystacks
And you're on your own
Clutch at straws.

Calm country living
Out on a limb
Old waters flow on and on
Calm country living
Too calm for him
Now she's gone.

Calm country living
Cool country ways
Let you know just where you are
Calm country living
Counting the days
She's gone far.

When the warm nest's unwinding
When the early bird's flown
Into the world's open jaws
When it's needles and haystacks
And you're on your own
Clutch at straws.

When the warm nest's unwinding
When the early bird's flown
Into the world's open jaws
When it's needles and haystacks
And you're on your own
Clutch at straws.
