about

This song was written in memory of my grandmother, who taught me to play guitar when I was very young.

lyrics

Front Porch
©Kevin Winchester 2009/2015

On my front porch late at night, the thunder rolls, some twenty miles away.
Breeze is blowing from the south now, don’t you know, it smells just like rain.
Honeysuckle’s come in bloom and I don’t know what to do without you.
Storm is moving closer now, day’s at end, and I still feel the same.
As the rain begins to fall down, I fool myself and softly call your name.
I just want to talk to you, hear your voice, one more time again.

Sometimes I wonder why, sky’s are dark and the ocean’s wide
What makes the bright stars shine and what became of all our time.
And the things that hurt the most are all the things
I’ll never know about you.

I dreamed I saw a field of heather and somewhere a song began to play.
There were mountains in the distance, the path was dark, I could not find my way.
And then I heard your voice so sweetly, soft and pure, you sang Amazing Grace.
We’ve been there ten thousand years, still your face is shining like the sun.
But my dream is over now, I wake to find another day’s begun.
You touched my life and gave me song and it’s so hard to carry on without you.

On my front porch late at night, the thunder rolls, some twenty miles away.
