Our collaboration on 50/90. Wy created his inspiring lyric, I composed the music and recorded the piano, we sent the piano track and piano with my rough vocals to Dawn and Dawn recorded her stunning vocals. Thank you both Wy and Dawn for your amazing collaboration.

The old oak stood
When the country birthed
As generations rolled
Anchored deep in the earth?

Ten feet around
It's bark tells a story
When girls and boys
Carved of love in full glory

Night times they gather
Ghosts from the past
Love through the years
Some not destined to last

They talk of old times?
When they were young?
Talk of the things
They wish they had done

Some folks can hear them
Some even can see
Murmuring low
They drift with the breeze

Some still are yearning
For love lost in the mist
Still linger there waiting?
For just one last kiss
