I composed this tune for Alex. Alex and I got in a dispute about the state of country music. Alex thought country music was dead and had lost it’s soul. I told Alex that I’d compose a tune a prove to him that he was wrong. I gave Alex a single note melody and lyrics. Alex did the rest. Alex told me that the song brought tears to his eyes. Alex told me that when he recorded the final cut that he was loosing his voice.
From time to time I listen to the tune ( I can’t sing so I never play it) But when I do occasionally listen to Alex sing the song it brings tears to my eyes for a much different reason than Alex’s.
Posting this tune is my farewell to Alex; a very intelligent, talented and humble human being. the world could use more folks like him.
