    Paul McCartney's Calico Skies.
    It's from Flaming Pie, and it came out the year of Linda's passing.
    The first two verses seem to be a love song (I think to Linda) and the last verse is anti-war.
    It "gets" to me.
    It's another waltz, too.

    Ellis County by Julie and Buddy Miller. With my parents getting up in age I find myself thinking more about what things were like when I was a kid and what our lives were like.

    "Where I've Been" - Rival Sons.

    Not only an amazing band, this live performance (in studio) is a tear jerker no matter how hard I fight it.

    I forgot this one about the dying of my Uncle. The singer and writer is my Cousin. I am that boring looking guy with the Telly.


    Merry Christmas to all of you.

    Loggins and Messina- Golden Ribbons. (Vietnam era but still applicable today)

    "I see young men my own age in coffins
    And mothers in tears for their sons
    And sweethearts and wives
    Alone with their memories
    And golden ribbon's those fortunes of war"

    And.... since it's Christmastime
    "O Holy Night" because it was my mom's favorite

    I forgot the Tennessee Waltz.

    I was in a friend's wedding (a Tennessean like myself) and his dance with his mom was the Tennessee Waltz. She was in Stage 4 cancer and died just a few months later, but it was a beautiful moment.
