Today, the song Caledonia popped in my head, and hasn’t left it… It’s really a lovely song, and the version I have is from “Nosey Flynn“. I first met them ~3 years ago in Nashville at Findley’s Pub in the Opreyland Grand Resort. I spent just about every night of the convention that year, and the year following in the pub listening to them.

I would like to get back down there some time to catch them at another venue, perhaps the next time I go down for TNRF I will go earlier in the week and make it a point to hit the pubs and harrass them. 🙂

I don’t know if you can see
The changes that have come over me
In these last few days I’ve been afraid
That I might drift away
So I’ve been telling old stories, singing songs
That make me think about where I came from
And that’s the reason why I seem
So far away today

Oh, but let me tell you that I love you
That I think about you all the time
Caledonia you’re calling me
And now I’m going home
If I should become a stranger
You know that it would make me more than sad
Caledonia’s been everything
I’ve ever had

Now I have moved and I’ve kept on moving
Proved the points that I needed proving
Lost the friends that I needed losing
Found others on the way
I have kissed the ladies and left them crying
Stolen dreams, yes there’s no denying
I have traveled hard with coattails flying
Somewhere in the wind

Now I’m sitting here before the fire
The empty room, the forest choir
The flames that could not get any higher
They’ve withered now they’ve gone
But I’m steady thinking my way is clear
And I know what I will do tomorrow
When the hands are shaken and the kisses flow
Then I will disappear
