Across the Border
Some songs are historical in nature, whether about streetcars (Big Red Cars), World War I (Windigo) or British treatment of the Irish (Ballinamuck). I also sing about mining (Timberman), war (Soldier's Prayer and Fallujah), Arctic exploration (Take it from day to day) and George Harrison (Spirit Man). I sing about unrequited love on the high Dakota plains (Aberdeen) and municipal embarassment in Philadelphia, my hometown (Pigeon Bones). Lastly I sing about observation of nature (Flowerpot Waltz) and resurrection (Across the Border and Big Red cars). If you like songs in the style of Stan Rogers or Ralph McTell, this is your album.
