Lots to love about this laidback, forlorn track from D.H. Scott, a singer/songwriter who was born in Bakersfield, CA but now resides in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Scott has a wonderful ache and grain to his voice, at times reminiscent of Townes Van Zandt. This great track is the story of a man (Casey Todd) who he would often run into while walking to a train station in Los Angeles to busk.
Scott has a full length album, My Body Longed For The Summer, due for release on July 20th.
I left my wife
And moved to Denver
Trying to find me a home
I fell and faltered
Where the days roll by nice and slow
I lost some teeth in Albuquerque
Oh, Lord, I don’t know what’s come over me
