09_Sail Sail On (2004)
(Paul Brady / Sharon Vaughn)
Another version of ‘Paradise Is Here’ perhaps? ‘We’ll be a long time gone’ is an Irish phrase used as an exhortation to enjoy life right now. I’m constantly aware of how short a time we have…in our present shape, at least… and how little the daily struggle we engage in actually affects the outcome of our lives in the long run. Things happen or not… when they’re supposed to so… sail, sail on. Written in Dublin with Sharon Vaughn, this is from the ‘Say What You Feel’ album sessions in Nashville. Kenny Malone on drums, Viktor Krauss bass, Reese Wynans on Hammond organ, Tom Britt electric guitar, John R Burr on Wurlitzer, Scat Springs and Andrea Zonn on background vocals.
