Thanks!

Here's the lyrics:

I walk this land
And none I follow
I wander weaving through the streets
And though I hear
The voices they sound hollow
I wonder will I find some peace

The faces stare
I wonder what they see
The sorrow or the lightly colored shade
Do they want
Or do they need
To borrow this life I have made

Take these hands
And wring them out for me
Take this body far away
Across the lands
As far as you can see
Standing in one place

I walk the streets
Where none will follow
The roads that no one seems to take
And should it lift
That shade of sorrow
I might be saved before I break

Take these hands
And wring them out for me
Take this body far away
Across the lands
As far as you can see
Standing in one place

Someday, I might just be able to say "I knew her before she became famous".

I've always enjoyed writing lyrics. The hardest part is waiting for something to come. Thank you!

You'd make a good (real) country singer/songwriter.

Very nice. I'm always surprised at the sound coming out of those travel guitars.

Thanks UA! I've been into bluegrass for the past few years. It's a fun style. Aren't those little backpackers great? Sometimes I forget to play my dreadnought because the little guitar is so much easier to grab and play.

Amazingly those little backpackers have a nice tone, very different of course but unique in their own right. I could see you with a Parlor or 000 type guitar. Naughts are just big, boomy and clumsy IMO unless you want to boom chucka boom bluegrass chords all day.

Nice song

Nice song
I like the size of this guitar for sure. It's so light and easy to deal with. I'm not familiar with parlors, I'll have to look them up.

So THAT'S autotone. Hmm. Something tells me it would sound awfully silly with my lowfi recording.
