"Early Morning Blues And Greens" as written by Diane Hilderbrand and Jack Keller....
A distant night bird mocks the sun.
I wake as I have always done,
To freshly scented sycamore
And cold bare feet on hardwood floor.
My steaming coffee warms my face
I'm disappointed in the taste.
But there's a peace the early brings
The morning world of growing things.

I feel the moments hurry on
It was today, it's died away,
And now it is forever gone.
And I will drink my coffee slow
And I will watch my shadow grow
And disappear in firelight
And sleep alone again tonight.

    General CommentI love this melancholy song. Who can't relate to the sighing ennui of the lyrics, and Davy's weary vocal is perfect for it. What a treasure.

    General CommentHilderbrand, co-author of the song with the late Jack Keller, also recorded her own version of this song for her 1969 debut (and only) album. She has fallen off the radar; if anyone knows about her whereabouts please get in touch with me here.

    General CommentThis songs says to me "I'm heart-broken and weary" which fits perfectly with my day today. I had to say my goodbyes to a loving companion.
    This song is the drudgery of trying to move on in the sludge of the pain and heartache. The rest of the world moves on, happily supplying new and tender life.
    It's only time and acceptance that can help heal. :(
