Pardon my ignorance but what are druthers?
Just checked the dictionary it means preference , I hadn't heard the word before .Now I fully understand ,nice song Jeff I like the content a lot .
I really like the progression from B this works well but I keep wanting to add a D in this next bit and so on
[E]Surely [A]not the road to [B]riches
[E]Surely [A]not the road to[D] [B]riches
but then this last line would need to finish on B before returning to the B progression
E]Spend more time with [A]you heaven [D]sent
E]Spend more time with [A]you heaven [B]sent
I 'd like to hear you play it Jeff .
Thanks Graham. Actually I kind of played around with the second set of chords and finally settled on the E A B and E A D just lately. I'll get it up on soundcloud soon, but it it fairly easy to play sliding up from B to A. Only tricky part is going to the D from the Bb, but that is my favorite sounding part of the song really.
Druthers is a word I remember from my past that just makes me think about the mountains, different times, slower pace, and a simpler lifestyle...another reason I tried to keep the chords kind of bluesy and reflective if you know what I mean.

Nice feel to it Jeff well played and sung .
This one brought me back many years to the mountains of western North Carolina. Had a lot of good times in those mountains. And I had a good time listening to your song too Jeff. Great job man!
Hey Jeff has our mutual friend from the mountains heard this?? that what i was thinking of when I heard it,
Don't think so but I will give her a heads up. I think she'd like it.
