Here’s a new song for Arbor Day, another in a series of songs for holidays that (IMHO) need more and better songs. When I talk about my other holiday songs, someone will inevitably suggest writing one for Arbor Day. Yes, I know that’s usually intended as a joke, but on the other hand, why not take up the challenge?
This came out more “pop” than earlier songs, perhaps because I wrote it in G major for a change. Here’s a quick recording of the tune, recorded on a hotel piano in Louisville, KY during a business trip. I hope to record a more polished version later on.
