Wayside/Back in Time by Gillian Welch

I’m currently snowed in and I have a pretty good case of cabin fever. However, I have spent a large amount of my time listening to Gillian Welch and wishing I could write songs like her. She calms my spirit. I’m particularly enchanted with Wayside/Back in Time from her album Soul Journey. It’s a great song. Here’s a link to a video of it too!

Standing on the corner with a nickel or a dime
There use to be a rail car to take you down the line
Too much beer and whiskey to ever be employed
And when I got to Nashville, it was too much soldiers joy
Wasted on the wayside, wasted on the way
If I don’t go tomorrow, you know I’m gone today

Back babe, back in time
I wanna go back when you were mine
Back babe, back in time
I wanna go back when you were mine — Gillian Welch
