"The sight of the morning glories growing by the tracks is his connection to another world, something that points to the supernatural, and gives him hope."
This song is a special blend of modern and classic Americana with symbolic medieval themes that tells the story of a prisoner finding hope and solace in the sight of morning glories growing by the tracks.
Following our time-honored tradition of Greg singing the closing track on the album, we knew this song was just right for him the moment we wrote it. His voice—folky, grieving, but still hopeful and yearning—turned out to be the perfect fit for the character in this story. Tex the dog also makes an appearance in the intro.
