Mikes Yeates tells stories of East Texas in his song writing that seem all so familiar to me. Having grown up exploring the forests of North Alabama, I felt some propinquity to the piney woods in East Texas when my family relocated to Texas in the mid 1960's. I met Mike several years ago and immediately fell in love with his lyrical style and East Texas stories. This song sample, however, was written for his daughter. It was recorded on November 8, 2003 at the Artist's Enclave in South Austin. Mike's niece (Amanda) sings with Mike on guitar and harmony vocals.
