Album Notes
I moved to Louisiana in 1996, after being born and raised in the city in Southern California. To say I suffered from culture shock is an understatement. But the noise of living out in the woods has its own charm (cicadas, owls, crickets and who knows what else) and I found it helped me to sleep at night.

I had written several songs about that culture shock, but I wanted to write something positive about what I had come to appreciate about my adopted state. I wrote this chorus one night in just a few minutes, as well as the bridge - but the verses just didn't work. That is, until I changed the story line so that it is the reverse of my own story - the verses tell the story of someone born and raised in Louisiana, but longing for life out west. And of course even though they were happy at home, and are happy "out on the prairie" - there's still a longing to go back to what's familiar. It's a lighthearted look at "the grass is always greener...." Oddly enough, the new verses worked just fine with my original chorus and bridge. So it stands.
