Cindy pulls another rabbit out of the hat with this lyric...spellbinding!

Lyrics: 

I've heard do not walk under a ladder
I've heard don't step on a crack
I've heard all sorts of superstitions
But not one about taking you back

I've heard about a rabbit's foot
And a horseshoe above a door
But I keep asking myself
If things will be like they were before

Back when we were magic
Back when we loved with ease
Back when we stayed connected
Can you answer me please

I've heard about not breaking a mirror
And being wary of the number thirteen
I'm getting signs from you now
But I want to know what they mean

I've heard of gold at the end of a rainbow
And all about knocking on wood
Now comes the time for choices
I pray all my luck will be good

Back when we were magic
Back when we loved with ease
Back when we stayed connected
Can you answer me please

Back when we were magic
Back when we loved with ease
Back when we stayed connected
Can you answer me please

Back when we were magic
Back when we loved with ease
Back when we stayed connected
Can you answer me please

I love the classic sounding melody and those little blue notes are very tasty. I like the lyric, it's a great angle to write from and it's done up right.

Excellent classic country sound! Those harmonies are super sweet. I really like the harmonica solo. Your collabs are always so inspired--you make a great team!
