Description
This is a cover by John Prine. A lot of people have covered it, but we wanted to arrange one too. The truck sound during the guitar solo was totally luck.

I always liked this song and I think you did it justice here. Nice vocals and harmonies. The acoustic guitar gives it an intimate live feel.

Great to see you again
You've got some soul to your voice. Something you can't teach nor learn.

Enjoyed this,

Thank you...
Hi Rayelise. This is one of my favourite John Prine songs and the intimate version you have posted here is just fantastic. I would love to hear you sing this live. The harmonies work a treat and Eli's sparse lead break suits this interpretation wonderfully well. Thanks for the posting. Made my morning. Regards, Peter.

Mr Prine
Very cool rendition, Like the harmonies when you sing make me an angel, did you record this outside or was the truck that loud whatever happened it added to the song. Loved it!

Egobandit
Thank you! We recorded it inside but yeah the truck was that loud. At first we were like 'oh shit can't use this version because of the truck' but then after listening to it, we really liked it. fits the mood of loneliness, life driving by you, every day life happening around her as she's wishing for something more meaningful.

John Prine
John Prine was one of my coffee house folk heroes in my college days. Thanks for bringing back those days. Btw, if you are recording the rhythm guitar on a separate track than your vocals, consider adding an exciter and EQing it a tad bright, like the lead. Nice song art, did you draw it? Fitting.

Thanks for the advice Tobin. Eli mixed it but I'll send it on. Yes I drew that picture years ago, but yeah it felt fitting for this song. Thanks!

A very good song about life....
Something 5 out of 10 people has felt on your street alone or something close, these type of songs are what hits are made of....
Great vocals at time a little to close to the Mic but it has style and individuality your not trying to sing like anyone else, that's a plus.....

Very nicely done......
