09 Dead End of the Dirt Road
8. Dead End of the Dirt Road (2:58)
A tune about the splendor & peaceful serenity of living the simple life; this is a co-write with my close friend, Canada’s legendary Washboard Hank. In early 2013, a month after Hank visited me at my home at the “Dead End Of The Dirt Road” in the Santa Cruz Mountains, I flew to Toronto & Hank drove me to my Balsam Lake cottage north of Toronto, Canada wherein we stayed up late and, ironically, wrote this song about where I live back in California. Having Audrey Auld sing harmony with me on this was terrific.
