I'm stretching the rules a little here, but I thought people might enjoy it and I wanted to get it up while it was still July. I'm not playing on this, but I did record it in a room in the Imperial Hotel in Monterey, TN quite a few years ago.
I thought it might be a bit of a balm with all that's going on these days. I'll leave it up for a few days.

This is awesome, Doug. Really enjoyed it. :-))
That key change( ??) is unexpected and so pretty. I'm not sure if it's really a key change but ya know what I mean!

You wouldn’t have that address would you? Very fitting.

Nice song, why did you need to get it in while July? I couldn't hear all they lyrics so I assume some of them refer to the month of July.

Being 6th-or-7th-gen small Southern town(ship), I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks.

"All is so calm through the night"...
You left out the cicadas and the frogs singing their hearts out! No peace around here...

Scott, I wanted to post it because the first line of the chorus is "The July nights are ending." I'm surprised you couldn't hear all the lyrics - they seem pretty clear to me. Anybody else having trouble?
NCnotes - the first line is "Hear the crickets singing in the dew sparkling grass" and there's a train rumbling through town too. Its calm, not silent! As far as cicadas, that was recorded in late May of 1987, 34 years ago. That's two lifetimes for Brood X! (which I don't think I've heard here this year).
Randy, i don't know if your question about an address is whimsical, but this song is fictiion, but its so fits this area so well at this time of year that I love to hear it. I hope I was clear that this song was written and sung by Ed Snodderly. All I did was record it. Ed is from Johnson City, TN, but I think he still has a little house in Jonesborough. The Imperial hotel, where the recording was made is in Monterey, TN, on the Cumberland plateau, and is still standing.
Like I said it seems to represent anywhere in this part of the country at this time of year.
