Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey and there were palms placed on his path and being waved at Him. Last Sunday marked the "beginning of the end" of His work on earth. It also marked the one year anniversary of the loss of my first love, my mother. This picture was taken during the time that mom, my brother and I lived in Louisiana. A time spent with my grandparents, aunts and uncles and cousins. It was a time I never forgot, and eventually this is the song that came from those memories. Have a blessed Holy Week and a blessed Easter everyone!

Morning. Marvin:

I really enjoyed this visit to an era and region we share. Your demo singer knocked it out of the park and the song is true to it's genre... at least the one we grew up with. LOL!

May your Easter be memorable. Thanks for sharing this one with us.

This is wonderful Marvin!
It’s like a Kodak moment in my mind
The whole song is like a like that, but somehow you've made it feel universal too.

Puttin’ my priorities in line
That's great. Really understated, but powerful.

But I wouldn’t trade those days for where I’m at
That line took me by surprise given the context of the song, and I like being surprised smile

Every stage of every age rollin’ down life’s road
Love the internal rhyme. I've seen others overdo those, but here it slips in beautifully

The music is great too. The nostalgic verses with the chorus lifting it up. And the bridge is another highlight.

Beautifully done sir!

Marvin,
I'm sure your Mother would be very proud of this effort and the fact these "Kodak moments" have found a permanent home in your mind. In fact, after listening in, you did such a nice job lyrically that if you were to includ a few more verses, we would have been able to experience the smells and sounds also. Really nice job, thanks for sharing,
Skip

Marvin,

Nice classic country sound on this one. Wasn’t a farm boy myself, but the lyrics still resonate for a suburban kid like me. Pretty melody and terrific lyrics in that chorus. Good luck with this one!

All the best,

Deej
