With an interplay between age, years, and dates, this song is a dance between being 65 and the innocence of the summertime of childhood back in 1965. The snap of sheets, fresh cut grass, the ball hitting the glove and “life was sweet.” Randy Palmer creates merry folk music of nostalgia, where you can really see the playground and smell the air with the senses of your mind.
The key is naive! There was a time when yard games in the dark at Berkley’s house were my
deepest desire. The bigger world and its troubles were far away. Please, please, please pass
on the adventure of being a child. — Randy Palmer
