In 2018, a fan requested I cover Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's "The Lee Shore". This was recorded in a day in our home studio. Originally shared on my Patreon, I'm sharing it widely today in memory of David Crosby.


Wheel gull spin and glide
You've got no place to hide
It's 'cause you don't need one
All along the Lee Shore
Shells lie scattered in the sand
Winking up like shining eyes at me
From the sea
Here is one like sunrise
Older than you know
It's still lying there, where some careless wave
Forgot it long ago
When I awoke this morning
Dove beneath my floating home
Down below her graceful side in the turning tide
To watch the sea fish roam
And there I heard a story
From the sailors of the Sandra Marie
There's another island eight days' run away from here
And it's empty and free
From here to Venezuela
There's nothing more to see
Than a hundred thousand islands flung like jewels upon the sea
For you and me
Sunset smells of dinner
Women are calling at me to end my tales
But perhaps I'll see you the next quiet place
I furl my sails
