Story

The song "Come Home Again" came together reflecting on a life-learning moment for my son (ie. girl breaks up with boy...).  It evolved into my own thoughts always second-guessing what alternatives one might have taken in life.  Lets just say I am very happy and blessed with the "road" I travelled! 

Lyrics

COME HOME AGAIN   © Marc N. Davidson 2009 

 

Walk down that road feeling good again,

Don’t think of what you should have been;

Take off your shoes,  feel the ground, my friend,

Know where you’ve been, come on home again.

 

Just like a day when you, get up and say,                         

Nothing seems new that is coming my way.

But just like a thread on an old open sleeve,

Its got places its been, through the cotton and tweed.      

      

Walk down that road feeling good again,

Don’t think of what you should have been;

Take off your shoes,  feel the ground, my friend,

Know where you’ve been, come on home again.

 

Old makes me see what I happen to need,

Some reassurance in things we believe;

I’m not sayin’ that I’ve run out of gas,

My foot’s on the pedal, I’m just tryin’ to pass.

 

Walk down that road feeling good again,

Don’t think of what you should have been;

Take off your shoes, feel the ground, my friend,

Know where you’ve been, come on home again.

Story

This was one of the first songs Second Wind worked up - we were inspired by Emmylou Harris' version with banjo - the accordian was a bonus.  In his 1984 Playboy interview, Paul Simon revealed that he wrote this song when critics were writing harsh things about his music - he was the boxer. Said Simon: "I think the song was about me: everybody's beating me up, and I'm telling you now I'm going to go away if you don't stop. By that time we had encountered our first criticism. For the first few years, it was just pure praise. It took two or three years for people to realize that we weren't strange creatures that emerged from England but just two guys from Queens who used to sing rock'n'roll. And maybe we weren't real folkies at all! Maybe we weren't even hippies!"

Bob Wills

Story

This was one of Pattie's Father's favorite songs.  Marc remembers Howard whistling "San Antonio Rose" around the house when he would go home to visit her family in Dallas.  It was naturally destined to be part of our repertoire!  No whistling, however!

U2

Story

We have always been big fans of U2.  Second Wind's version of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" was inspired by Dale Ann Bradley, who, if you have never heard, please by all means listen to her recent cd East Kentucky Morning !
