Description
This was written by Greg Grimm, a close friend of mine in my late teens and until his death in the 1990s. As far as I know, I'm the only person on earth who plays this song. I would love to locate some of his kids and compare notes. Greg was an excellent songwriter, and is much missed. This song features me on guitar and vocal, produced by Scott Carmichael, another close friend from later in life, and a brilliant musician with whom I'm proud to work.

Lyrics
There's movin' in the air, there's a summer wind a smilin' at my side
It’s nice to rest awhile, but now I guess I'll say goodbye
It’s not the first time I've left alone
And its not the last time I'll leave a love for a country road

There's changin' in your eyes; they seem to say I'd like to leave with you
But I need not ask again, cause you think you're doing what you ought to do
And its not the first time, I've left a home
No, it’s not the last time I'll leave a love for a country road

Cause I'm livin' in a dream I must bury
Lookin' for a life that I won't find
And it's gettin' kinda heavy for me to carry my goodbyes

Seems every lover I find I get the feeling it's over
I can settle down and finally build a home
But when the summer wind comes- she'll be stayin' I'll be goin'
Na na na, na na na na na na na, na na na

Well, don't you have a dream that time has faded
But with a little ray of hope you wander on
Will you ever realize you can't make it on your own

Well, there's movin' in the air, there's a summer wind a smilin' at my side
I'd like to stay awhile, but I know I got to say goodbye
Its not the first time, I've been alone
And it ain't the last time I'll leave a love for a country road
No, it ain’t the first time I’ve been alone
And it ain’t the last time I’ll leave a love for a country road.

Country road
Gentle, catchy melody. Warm vocal style. Full guitar (maybe a bit too much chorus/echo on it?) Enjoyable listening!

Sorry to take so long to respond; for some reason the reply feature didn't work for me before this. My guitar is a 12-string Ovation, which Scott tells me doesn't record well. That's why the song is disabled for now; we are working on a better version and will probably use Scott's guitar rather than mine.
