Our House, Our Town
“This song is not just about a place,” Carr says, “it’s about the love that makes a place special.” When she was a young girl, Carr read and loved ‘Vagabond’s House’, written by Don Blanding in the 1920’s. The poem describes a traveling soul’s home filled with their most valued treasures and memories. “It churned up the wanderer in me and made me pine for this special place,” Cynthia recalls, “I carried it with me until I was a grown woman and began writing, but it wasn’t until I actually fell in love that the song came to be.”
Evoking a sense of place, contentment, and belonging that all of us one day hope to find, Our House, Our Town is sure to be a favorite among folk lovers – young and old.
