In Their Words: “I needed another song for the bluegrass side of the album, and this trad-sounding chorus was floating around in my head shortly before the recording session. The verses are new takes on old bluegrass themes with a nod to the John Hartford song, ‘Learning to Smile.’ This track is the most straight-ahead bluegrass song of the bunch, with a few minor chords in there to keep it interesting. Jed Clark provided the relentlessly driving rhythm guitar and tenor vocals, Geoff Saunders laid down bass, George Guthrie dug the ditch with the five-string and sang baritone, and Bronwyn Keith-Hynes glued it all together on the fiddle.” — Joshua Rilko
