PlayThe Best of Me
This is the most autobiographical song I have ever written. I came up with the guitar motif and the beginnings of a lyric in the summer of 2005, not long after I was married and shortly before the birth of our first son (we now have another son and a daughter). It took me over a year to complete the lyrics; it was very important to me that I get it “right”. Finally, an image of a journey towards our shared future helped me complete the words.
Randy Everett played a beautiful nylon-string guitar part.
