When I lived alone in the holler, there was a really neat musician who lived across the holler from me, K. “Lynn” Travis. (Sept 30, 1952 – Nov 19, 2020). We loved each other and still ended up choosing our separate ways.
His dream was a handmade house in the holler and children. He found the perfect wife and they made the dream come true.
And my direction was different, although we remained friends. My body was no longer able to have children, so I embraced music and the aura of the road.
“You Are In My Heart”… was my song of our parting. I recorded it with Rush Beesley in Dallas, TX, at the Sundance Studios. Listening to it all these years later, I’m sure I never thanked Rush and his crew enough for their magic.
You Are in My Heart
When you arise in the morning, sometimes think of me
When the forest is turning raise a glass for me
You are in my heart like the mountain’s sweet song
Wherever I go, you’ll go along,
As you sit in the evening, sometimes smile for me
When you laugh with your good friends, sing one song for me
You are in my heart like the desert’s sweet song
Wherever I go you’ll go along.
When your spirit is flying ride the wind for me
In the woods as you’re walking listen there for me
You are in my heart like the river’s sweet song
Wherever I go, You’ll go along…
You are in my heart, like the mountain’s sweet song
Wherever I go, You’ll go along.
