Spring Wind


It’s fall, yes, but I’m sorta obsessed with this song right now. I’d never heard of Greg Brown before, but recently re-watched 180° South, and caught the bit of the Jack Johnson cover of “Spring Wind” – this passage jumped out at me:

My friends are gettin older,

so I guess I must be too.

Without their loving kindness,

I don’t know what I’d do.

Oh the wine bottle’s half empty–

the money’s all spent.

And we’re a cross between our parents

and hippies in a tent.

Since then, I’ve been listening to more of Brown’s work – I’ve got a penchant for folk music, always have – it’s got a nostalgic quality to it that I really like.  So, anyway, my not-new-new-to-me discovery to share with you all. Good stuff.
