Story of the Song – In The Morning

James Joyce wrote about Ireland from the comfortable distance of France. Similarly, I usually write about the good side of lovin' when am single.

Leastways, that's how I rationalise it. (whatever it may be...).

While I would love to pen one of those upbeat, uplifting peans to romantic love that encompass all the thrill and joy of finding Someone -– a la Holland Dozier Holland – it's those wee details of living with and around someone that make a love affair so sweet. This is the way I appear to express things of this order, anyway.

The evergreen Needle and the Damage Done chordy thing is used to full effect in this tune, which revolves around a 'three chord trick'. With a little cheatin' embellishment. And that is pretty much it.
