This Hurting Song.


Wrote a lonesome song for a friend, one that started with a chorus that appeared while I was on an island in Seattle. He was kind enough to spend three hours with it on his porch and turned it into a country waltz. Happened to be in a Louvin Brothers sort of mood, so that's the way it went. I haven't heard it yet and don't know when I'll get that chance to. I do know I heard his voice singing it before I finished writing it completely. I do know he trusted me enough to take it, run with it and work the kinks out the only way he knew how to do. And, while I'm some kind of novice in this songwriting arena, I also know that this can't help but bring me great big bucketfuls of joy.
