This song was sung to Neil Young and Daryl Hannah at their recent wedding celebration, to an audience that included Joni Mitchell, Lucas Nelson and many others. All in all about 140 people were entertained and enthralled by Carrie’s performance. The lyrics were then superimposed over a harvest moon photograph and printed on aluminium and gifted to Neil and Daryl.
Carrie’s constant companion, Catty, was always by her side and when she ran, she was just a smudge in the atmosphere. She loved music and singing, and although she had to be put down, her presence is still felt every day. Everyone can relate to the loss of a loved one with Carrie’s lyrics:
"I can’t talk
I can’t phone
I can’t walk this chasm alone.
I can’t leave
And I can’t stay home
I can’t fix the hole inside me."
Carrie loves the open road - with a pile of index cards always beside her - it’s where some of her best songs have been written - pulling over when inspiration strikes.
