Words by Michael Murphy

Music Composed, Performed & Produced by David Paul Jones 

Released: Autumn 2021

I passed a field
with seven horses
seven white
against the green
seven friends trusting
tight and serene 
so even 
so uneven 

I grew up with horses
and the white and the green
was I ever so trusting?
was I ever serene?
was I so even?
or uneven? 

— Michael Murphy
