“The first time I remember hearing this song, I was about five years old, at a hootenanny with my mother.

When I told [my mom] we were about to go out on the road, she was so happy. She said to me, ‘Make those people sing with you.’ So I figured we could all sing along to this one, the words are pretty simple…”
