The album's opening track (at least that's the plan) is up in the player.  I originally thought I'd call it "Canada Dry," but the new title "Into the Light (This Lazy River)" makes more sense.

Nice little track indicative of the sound and feeling I hope to have on this year's album.

 

INTO THE LIGHT (THIS LAZY RIVER)

 

Take me down to the river

Throw the jackets in the hull of the boat

Let the current deliver

To the bend at the bridge where it’s harder to float

What’d you pack in the cooler?

It’s hard work lying back in the sun and the sky

I see you sipping your root beer

Please tell me you brought me a Canada Dry

 

The only son and the youngest daughter

Our parents sure did raise us right

Pull the oars from the water

And we’ll just float on by into the light

 

Nothing lasts forever

All good things come to an end

Like this lazy river

You never know what’s coming ‘round the bend

 

The only son and the youngest daughter

Our parents sure did raise us right

Pull the oars from the water

And we’ll just float on by into the light
