"The way to love anything is to realize it might be lost." - G. K. Chesterton

This song has always been a favorite of mine; I have a soft spot for the songs that bring a tear to the eye. But lately I think this song takes on a new poignancy with what is happening to our country and our hometowns. The lyrics are about going back to a childhood home to find that there is nothing familiar there: 'everybody I met seemed to be a rank stranger.'
The Suggins Brothers do a wonderful rendition of this song. I hope you enjoy it.
