Waiting Out the Winter

This song with a twp-step country feel was Inspired but the annual autumn migration of the wild geese over my place in northwest Russia. It's a perfect song for your Christmas or other winter holiday celebrations.

Album Notes
They say that as a songwriter, you should write about what you know. Having lived almost 2 decades in northwest Russia, I know about winter. It's what we have most of the year. And up near 60 degrees north latitude, winters are dark, even on sunny days. I seem to have several winter songs written now, and this is one.

Originally conceived as more of a bluegrass song... that version is on my YouTube Channel. This arrangement is more of a country 2-step. I did it to make the song more danceable for the little Country and Bluegrass band I've been playing with in Saint Petersburg to play at it's monthly gig for local fans of American country culture. They call it the "Country Club"! No rich people, no golf course.

Inspiration for this came from the annual autumn migration of the wild geese. There's something intensely moving about that sight, at least for me. There comes a day when the wind is out of the north, and the huge "V"s of geese come bookin' southward riding it... day and night. And you know it's time to batten down the hatches, hunker down, and lay in a supply of that whiskey that will cheer you while you're Waiting Out the Winter.

So pour a wee drop of something cheering, sit back, and enjoy. Or grab your 2-step partner and head for the dance floor...
