A song, performed solo by David J. Matthews
, played on an acoustic guitar
. Supposedly only played twice (3.23.93 and 7.6.93) at Trax Night Club
--though I've heard rumors that a third performance exists on tape. The song was named by DMB
soundman Jeff Bagby
, who created the original names for several early Dave Matthews Band
The lyrics were never constant for this song, completely improvised and completely different each time. But the melody itself is hauntingly beautiful and unmistakable, and I'm not alone in wishing a more definitive version had made its way into the studio.
(Lyrics for the two confirmed performances will be forthcoming, also)
