Track 6 is a song called 'Down Here'. It is the last song that I wrote for the record. Finishing it, in fact, just a few weeks before we went into the studio.
I wanted to put an easy going tune on the album, but didn't have one in the ole repertoire. What I did have, was the last line of the chorus, which goes, "you can take it all with a grain of salt and a wedge of lime." It sounded like there was something there but I wasn't sure what.
The song was written over the course of about a month and I chronicled the writing process, in an earlier post titled Piecing Together A Song. Hopefully you'll find the song a nice companion as the weather warms and you make your way to the water.
