Description
This is a cover of a Carole King song from 1982. Strange thing is, I can't find any recording of it on the internet. I used to have the song on a Carole King cassette but it's long gone. Any way, I love the song and it's one that we've sung on an off in our family over the years. My hat tip and bow to one of the great singer-songwriters.
Vocals, Acoustic guitar, Harmonica, Keyboard instruments: bass and piano.

Best listened to through headphones...

Lyrics
1. I know a spot - one of the few we've still got
Closest thing I've seen to paradise
Along comes Sam, thinks he's got the perfect plan
Says "a paved road here would make it twice as nice"

Chorus:
Morning sun creeping down the mountain
Autumn skyways filled with southbound geese
Misty haze hanging over the meadow
Go away Sam, leave us in peace

2. I have a friend who drops out now and then
Talkin' to his animals by the stream
He's feeling free, go away and let him be
'Cuz he won't buy your obsolete concrete dreams

Chorus

3. What's right for your may not be what's right for me
I'd like to judge that for myself
I'll slow my pace, if you just leave me some space
Won't you please take your machinery somewhere else?

Chorus

the Daugie award...
Does it get any better? Indeed, there were so many worthy nominees. Yet here I stand at this podium. And with this honor I can now retire in peace, having finally attained the recognition I have so long labored for. I want to thank my manager and wife of 43 years, my fans (all 87 of them). But most of all i want to thank the Daug, who exemplifies the true essence of Dauginess. Wherever you are Carole, goodnight...

Maurice, thank you. Simple words and music by Carole King. Simple rendition by one of her fans. Nice that Daug thought it worth notice!
