***Analog tape recording with no gimmicks***

I wrote this song based on the simpler times of my childhood. Now a days things seem overly complicated with technology. I wanted to step back into time with this one and revisit a much simpler day. I hope you enjoy...

I have incorporated various stringed instruments like the Cello and violin to add a very interesting sound. You will also hear hints of pedal steel guitar.


heading down the road today
In a distant dream
Old memories flood my mind
But I dont feel the same
When this damn world tries to hold my head down
And the good old days cant be found

Driving in my Grandpa's truck
Windows rolled down
I can smell the cigarette smoke
Floating all around

Take me back to the simple days
But these modern thoughts get in the way
Take me back to the simple days
But these modern times get in the way

Flying high today
I cant take it any other way
