If Wishes Were Horses
is a an old-fashioned country ballad. Chosen by the members of my mailing list as "the most romantic song on The Old Silo," the song is a story of a missed opportunity and the feeling of bittersweet regret that comes with it.
It's funny, I sometimes forget lyrics when I'm performing but I've never (knock on wood) forgotten a lyric from this song. I think it's because the story plays out so clearly, like a little super-8 movie of a different time.
