Ah, Love Songs

Valentine’s Day Dinner at Georgina’s will be a chance to reach way back and play all the love songs I learned (and wrote) over the years. Lots of variety here, from the exquisitely lovely If I Needed You by Townes Van Zandt

If I needed you, would you come to me
would you come to me and ease my pain?
If you needed me, I would come to you
I’d swim the seas for to ease your pain

to the wistful Christmas in Prison by John Prine, which I learned when I fell in love for the first time:

I dream of her always, even when I don’t dream
Her name’s on my tongue, and her blood’s in my stream
Her heart is as big as this whole goddamn jail
And she’s sweeter than saccarine at a drug store sale
