about

As a child I was much inspired by my mother's record collection, which included 'Recollections' by Judy Collins. The album features a version of a song called Winter Sky, which my sister and I loved to belt out at the top of our lungs. Billy Edd Wheeler - now 84 years old - kindly granted me permission to record my own version of his song Winter Sky.

lyrics

Out under the winter sky
Out under the winter sky
Stars come trembling on my eye
Stars to tremble my eye

And I feel like someone's gonna die
I feel like someone's gonna die
I feel like someone's gonna die
Hand me wings for to fly

High is heaven in early morn
High is heaven in early morn
Men lie sleeping in beds that are warm
Sleep in beds that are warm

And I feel like someone's being born
I feel like someone's being born
I feel like someone's being born
Tells my soul not to mourn
