On our walk a few days ago, M mentioned he had a special present for J that he wanted to give her on the blog. He wrote her a love song! (I don't think I've ever told you this, but M likes to dabble in songwriting. He writes both kinds of music, country and western. As you can imagine, I get to hear a lot of his works-in-progress as we mosey down the road. But this one was a complete surprise.)
"Cool!" I said. "What's it about?" He said it was about three-and-three-quarter minutes. Then in response to my low growl, he revealed that it's about this guy--a struggling singer-songwriter--who's always out on the road trying to make a living playing in cheap dives and honky-tonks, while he misses his old lady like the dickens and looks forward to getting back home to her. M says he got the idea from watching a Jeff Bridges movie called Crazy Heart.
So without further ado, here's M's little musical prezzy to J.
