Description: Join me in remembering those warm summer nights catching fireflies to keep in a jar by the bed until morning.
When my children were young, they gave me the perfect excuse to go out and do it all over again.
With the help of many musical friends, this song is being heard in the Carolinas, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Minnesota, Virginia, and Canada. May we add your state?

Simple pleasures are the best, aren't they?
Love this simple song with dreamy feel to it, just like when, as kids, we'd gaze upon that jar of fireflies by the bedside as we'd drift off into dreamland. If I had little ones, I'd sing this to them as a bedtime lullabye. Heck, I'd love to have this sung to ME at day's end!
Thanks for such a lovely song, Frank.
