Common Ground

No, he wasn’t talking about 2020, but Thomas Paine's words are fitting: “These are the times that try men’s souls.” And their relationships. AND their patience with their fellow humans. 

There is no shortage of divisive topics these days but the optimistic songwriter in me believes there are SOME things we can agree on — a place to begin a hopeful conversation. 

I borrowed this melody from a traditional tune, an old murder ballad, “The Banks of the Ohio” and Craig joined me in the studio where we found “Common Ground.”
