    just loving all this material here Derek..you got a real skill for a painterly lyric, rich with imagery..it particularly hit me with the amazing "little scarecrow"..loving that interplay between the vocal and the soulful, soaring fiddle work..that's a fantastic slow-burner tune..amazing skills my friend!
