Liner Notes: 

Driving and thinking and thinking and driving. Had occasion to take a 45-mile drive each way across the countryside for work today.

9 of 28 on a common theme.

Lyrics: 

yellow fields of canola
shining brightly in the sun
as I drive across the prairies
thinking about what's to come

golden fields of winter wheat
waving gently in the wind
as I drive across the prairies
wondering what else will begin

oh the changing times
and changing days
the changing lines
and the changing ways...
but you're still here

blue-hued fields of blooming flax
bending slightly in the breeze
as I drive across the prairies
wondering if I'll find peace

deep green fields of growing corn
standing elegant and tall
as I drive across the prairies
lost in wonder at it all

oh the changing times
and changing days
the changing lines
and the changing ways...
but you're still here

oh the changing times
and changing days
the changing lines
and the changing ways...
but you're still here



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

i like this type of lyric about the countryside and also about travel - so you had a winner anyway! and a bit of whistle again as well! nice one mate (ps you are on podcast tomorrow)

nicely done! i can picture the drive from your description (well, sort of..i'm a long way from the wheatfields of western canada) and this is evocative and well done!

Good, solid, genuine-sounding! I have been thinking about doing a song with a whistling part; now it's going to sound like I copycatted you. I used to cover the Moody Blues' NIGHTS IN WHITE SATIN when I lived in China, and whistle the flute solo; my audiences were really wowed by it.

I really like the chord progression. Those a lovely lyrics with great imagery: golden fields of winter weeds.... This is so fun to listen to it. I could hear some cello with it! The whistling is so cool. Very creative!

enjoyed taking the road trip with you and that rich mellow guitar.
