This used to be common to the point of triteness, like having 1Corinthians 13 (mis)read at your wedding. Tracy and I sang it in two parts and were asked for it occasionally.
One doesn't often hear it anymore. Overuse, perhaps, or too strong an association with a particular era. I love the guitar tuning and work; love the lyrics; love the melody and his voice.
One guitar and one friend singing that beautiful song at our wedding under an ash tree at Lake Sacajawea.
I've always like that song. It does need the second voice to do it justice. PPM's chord progressions are more interesting than I remember them being from the time.
In our small outpost of evangelical college sub-culture of the early 80's this was what we sang at weddings:
Love it! It does, of course scream "1970-85," but it's a great representative of that era.
And I liked that era.
Yep, we had it at our wedding, too. Still like it and it always evokes positive memories. Thanks for posting.
yeah dude, assistant village idiot.
