This is a song made famous by the Dixie Chicks ( now called the Chicks I believe) called Travelin’ Soldier. It was written by American songwriter Bruce Robison and tells the story of a young girl waiting for her soldier to come home from the war.

Hello Eddie, another great song from you .
I actually haven’t heard it before, which is a shame as it’s beautiful .
You played it so well, very relaxed actually, and your voice suited it perfectly. Very enjoyable . Thanks for sharing .
Hey Eddie that was really good, you have a really good flow and natural way to perform - would be great to see you performing at one of our Community Open Mics one day! Keep up the good work that was another fine performance to your collection! All the best.
Well Eddie, I love it when new folk get ‘sucked into’ the community. You’ve been super-supportive to beginners and old hands alike and had some great shares
I mentioned on your Tom Joad vid that it was your best performance. I went back comparing this and, for me, this style of song and performance really suits you. The singing and playing are fine individually, but if I turn off the visuals, it becomes less special. Giving the appearance of interacting with an audience by looking at the camera and allowing your expressions to change is what makes a performance for me.
You’re good at it
Keep it up
Thanks Rogier! A live performance is definitely on my to do list as I finally feel comfortable enough to perform in front of people. At the moment my weekends are pretty full with my kids activities so when I get a time that suits I am in.
Thanks Brian. I definitely have been sucked in to the community and I am kicking myself I didn’t discover it earlier as I have learned so much from the wide variety of contributors and contributions, which in time I hope will make me a better and more rounded player.
Thanks for the encouraging feedback on performance. I don’t think I will ever be a great guitar player or singer, however I would rather get to a decent level where I can comfortably and confidently entertain people, so hopefully I am somewhere along that road.
Thanks so much Mark. Believe me it took a long time before I was comfortable with my vocals and it’s really only certain songs that suit me. I really sucked at singing for a long time. I have learned so many songs that no matter how hard I try cannot sing them for the life of me.
Thanks again for the listen and comments. Really appreciate it!!!
