A Brown Road Campfire

So that you can vicariously enjoy the whole Brown Road experience and since I can’t think of anything to write about, here’s me singing a campfire song, including all of the outside bird and peeper sounds from the swamp behind us! One of the critters got so loud towards the end, I think maybe it was sitting right underneath me. Maybe it was singing along. I laughed because I thought it sounded like one of those combination music and nature sounds CD’s you can buy.

Sweet Baby James is one of my favorite songs.  My Mom sang it to me to help me fall asleep when I was a baby. I don’t really remember that, but I imagine that’s where it all started. My parents had a copy of the James Taylor album that this song was originally recorded on and I would listen to it all the time. Of course, JT is one of the iconic singer/songwriters of our time!

If you’d like, here’s a video I found on youtube of a crackling campfire, that you can look at as well!

You may have to adjust the volume settings on the videos to watch them together, the crackling fire is pretty loud.

Have fun at the Brown Road campfire!

  1. You are a great singer!!! LOVED it!!! The nature sounds made it even better 🙂

  2. Thanks princess! I guess I’m so used to the nature sounds around us I didn’t even notice until I listened to the recording.

  3. JT is my absolute favorite. And you have a great voice. What a fun post! How nice of you to stop by “Lessons From Teachers and Twits” today. By the way, I am just having a little fun with you over there, in case you are not one to read comments, you might want to go back and check out my comment. 😉 Hope to see more of you, cowboy!

  4. What a Great idea!

    I totally played the crackling fire video while listening to your gentle rendition. I enjoyed the twirping of crickets or whatever that sound was…love nature. Love campfires. Nice clean guitar work, too! Glad you shared that with us. Who knew?

    • Thanks Spectra! I thought it was kinda fun to watch the fire too! You know, I’m not really sure what all those sounds are. We’ve always just called everything peepers which are little frogs that make lots of noise, but I’m sure there’s lots of other stuff out there!

  5. WOW – I’m very impressed!

    Very nice – you are one talented man!
    Should you ever have the opportunity to join our gang around the campfire, you will, of course have to learn a few of the grand kids camp songs such as this delightful ditty: “Great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts…” And then they wonder why I don’t feel like eating s’mores…
