About this song:

I was thinking about Jack Rose and Willa Cather when I wrote this. Each felt, at a critical point in their life, that their best work was behind them. Each, unwittingly, proved themselves wrong.

The concert scene that opens the song (meant to illustrate Jack’s grueling performance schedule) is based on our 2018 tour. We played Savoy Taproom and made the fans mentioned.

lyrics

Lyrics:

albany, new york
savoy taproom on lark street
nice enough crowd
jeanne and katy up front
fifty dollar payout
two drink tickets

when I come home to my wife
she’s wanting a child
or someone around
more than I’m around

is it nothing new to say
at age thirty-eight?
call me willa cather
call me godfrey st. peter
