Tidewater & Tony

I was sitting listening to some Tony Joe White
Absorbing the velvety groove
Taking to heart the stories sung
In that low tone
And I mentally headed back to Tidewater
Hanging by the river
With the swampy ponds covered in muck
Longing for the peace of that water
Especially during that golden hour
When all of the colors were subdued and glowing
When the little waves just lapped at the shore
I’d like to sit there
With my wife
Looking out over the James flowing to the sea
But barely able to show a current
Because it was just to cool
To get worked up
Kind of like my mood
With these Tony Joe White songs
