Well done Michael. Enjoyed this one a lot. Vocally I hear Croce. You're in good company. A lot of displaced Detroiters can relate.

quite "Denver'esque". listened to a few others

Great harp in this, nice and subdued. Good song. I like it.

The song sets a nice mood in the intro. Solid voice. Harp knows how to hang in the background. Simple, tight harmonies. The jew's harp might be a bit over the top but it's a feel -good song for sure.
I'll be sending this one down the pike, boys. Thanks for the good tune.
