I wrote 'Take A Ride With Me' in one sitting, when I was working on Music Row.
There's a line in the chorus that says, "I need you like a penny needs a wishing well" which I liked, when it first came out, but wanted to change. If any Garth Brooks fans are reading this, you might know that Garth has a line in the song 'Wrapped Up In You' that is virtually identical. Different melody of course, but same words.
Anyway, I ultimately couldn't take it out of the song because I love the relationship between a penny and a wishing well. The penny derives much of it's value from the wishing well, and is virtually worthless apart from it. And so, the line remained, and this is what we ended up with.
