To the sweetest voice of Ireland, Frances Black, I thank you kindly for believing in me as a songwriter and for recording se veral of these songs on your first solo album. When you called me for new songs for your record I did not know if this new writing approach I'd wandered into would or could echo in the heart of another voice other than my own...thank you for singing those songs with such grace and dignity...your voice retrieved my belief in myself as a songwriter with a heart of her own.

To the card reader in New York City who told me I had lived a hard life and that hard life was over now...who told me I had spent years internally reconciling and working out that hard life ...who said that work is completed now...who told me to go have fun now...I thank you for giving me license to be happy in life, I am living you advice.

To all those brilliant players for yor individuality and your've truly made these songs your own...I love you each dearly and express every kind of thanks for the honor of your presence here.

To Peter Buck, who produced with such great care "Time Of Inconvenience" and "Always Will" in Athens, Georgia during an especially inconvenient time in his life amongst having those twin babies and writing for his own new album with REM and to our engineer, John Keane who was also having twin babies, I thank you kindly...congratulations guys on producing those four great babies and theses two songs.

To my producer, Peter Collins, thank you for giving us humor, inspiration, integrity, direction and cigars.

7 don‘t forget about me [2:58]



don’t forget about me
(Nanci Griffith, James Hooker)

I can’t be your weather
If it rains then it rains
I can’t be your lover
Cuz the feelings would change

I can’t be the wind
Cuz the wind blows too free
But if you want a true companion
Don’t forget about me

Don’t forget about me
When your heart’s in the shade
When there’s no one to hold you
And you’ve fallen from grace
When the spotlights come blind you
And you can no longer see
I’ll be right there beside you
Don’t forget about me

Friends never leave you
They’re a two way street
They’ll always believe in you
When you’ve ceased to believe
And I’ll still be the same
If you’re a friend in need
Cuz , I’ll always love you
Don’t forget about me
