From the recording ABOUT LOVE THESE DAYS

This is my first published song in Nashville and coincidentally, the first alphabetically. I pulled it out of the archives and it still sounds fresh to these stale, old ears. I was in town for about 2 months when George Jones put this song on hold. I remember thinking how easy this songwriting thing was going to be! Unfortunately, the song never got cut, and no, it's not easy! ;)
