“Summer’s End” by John Prine (My Cover)
Today, I’m doing something completely different.
I recorded this short 5-minute song, this morning. It seems most fitting right now and speaks to our time.
“Summer’s End” by the late John Prine.
Since his passing, I’ve become even more of a fan of John Prine and his music. Released in 2018 on “The Tree of Forgiveness” album, “Summer’s End” was a wonderfully moving song written about the opioid addiction crisis. But John Prine’s comforting message of loss and hope could apply to any and all of us in our own times of confusion and conflict. I’m posting my first cover here on YouTube, with special thanks to David Huckfelt & Over The Rhine (Etown Radio) for being my “backing band.” I hope you enjoy it as much as I take away sharing it with you.
“Summer’s end came faster than we wanted….”
That says it all, really. A more brilliant nor more poignant lyric has not been written.
