Jan, Another great story song. We all need to relate to the vanquished and the old, because both are part of the seasonings of life. Great delivery. I especially liked the way you sang the eyes getting old by... (by the time the character got to a certain battle).

Thanks, Darrell

Jan Haunstein's rich baritone enhances this story of a boy who went off to the American Civil War in search of a fine adventure. His story is told from the perspective of the old veteran who survived, but lost home, friends and his innocence to the awfulness that is war. It's meant to be a gentle song about a terrible time in America, and Jan brings that feeling out very well in his performance.
