Love this track by Donsk and Wikimark. I was intrigued by Wikimark's title ("Hometown") to his drum addition, so I turned it into a country song about my hometown of Creston. It's a little town in the Kootenay region of British Columbia, Canada. The song could use a bass and an accompaniment and there's room for a short solo from 2:40-3:10. Maybe a harp, or some guitar pickin"? Also, I shorten the song a little ...

What a great song AL. Really well written and touching. Here from my place on the other side of the world I can 100% relate to that story. It´s as written about my own life. THX for sharing. Wonderful song. <3:W+1

Peterpingo It sure did my friend. As well emotionally as because it reminded me a lot of my own past/childhood. A great song. :) +1

This song really touched my heart Andrea. In reading the lyrics it is amazing how common our experiences were. Do you ever go back to Creston? I don't go back to mine for, as Paul Simon wrote, "everything looks worse in black and white".
Bless you for this lovely add,
keith

ALawrence1 I did go back to Creston in 2017. I don't know anyone who lives there anymore - they have either moved away or passed on. My revisit experience was pleasant. I tried to focus on the good times and not the bad. Glad you enjoyed it Keith. I had fun writing and singing it. Can I temp you into a bass add? +1
