A Winter's Day

Get Flash to see this player.

Back in the day (late 70's) this might have been called a Progressive Country song. Just one of those made up descriptions that mostly meant you lived in Austin instead of Nashville.Jerry Jeff Walker, Doug Sahm, Butch Hancock and Joe Ely are some of the names. I don't mean to imply that me or this song belong with those names but it's just a way to describe it. Lyrics are typical of the genre just describing everyday life in a straight forward way.

It's a beautiful winter's day in Austin, Texas
It only got down to 48 last night
And sometime this afternoon, it will be 65
And the sun shines down through a perfect blue sky

The squirrels are running around in my back yard
They look so funny climbing upside down
They chatter to each other, and look so carefree
Even though the nuts have fallen from the trees

The last couple of days the wind was blowing
The leaves were swirling in the air
But now it's settled down, and I feel so content
It's one of the best days of my life

Nothin' better...
...than "winter" in the South. This past one was kind of rough. Actually had to wear a jacket a couple of days. But, I do enjoy that three-month break from December to February where I don't have to mow the yard.

This one had me smiling, thinking about all the days I'm able to sit out on the patio and think about all those poor folks elsewhere having to deal with the snow and cold. Gotta love it!

really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing!

Winter in Texas
Enjoy it while it lasts .. those 100-plus-degree days are just around the corner : )

Yep - just sit down with the guitar and knock out your song - it doesn't get any more straight forward than that.

Authentic song...
...in every way: comfortable vocal, simple lyric, unadorned accompaniment that just serves to harmonize the tune, and a simple and straightforward recording: set up the mic and fire away. I like it.

(seemingly) simple life
This song is full of real life emotions. Seemingly a simple song, it gives you a imagery to ponder on, and leaves a lot on your mind. Maybe it is your voice and the way you sing it. Thank you and cheers.
