Harts on Fire: Billie and Buddy Hart perform an original, The Goodbye Train (So Long, Sweet Sally)

Post by Scott Saalman

I wrote the lyrics to this song, and Buddy Hart pulled out his inner Doc Watson. That’s his wife Billie singing with him. This was at a food bank performance at the Dubois Branch Public Library a couple years ago.

She Loves Me All Over

Post by Scott Saalman

One of the great things about being surrounded by some great local musicians who donate their time and talent to Will Read and Sing For Food is that they sometimes turn my lyrics into actual songs. Here’s one I wrote that was brought to life by my song-writing partner Marc Steczyk. It is called She Loves Me All Over. The song came to me while I was driving between Jasper and Santa Claus, Indiana, causing me to pull over several times to write down the words on pieces of a Wendy’s napkin. Performing on this video are Marc, Kris Lasher, Billie and Buddy Hart, Ed Walston and Kasha Schwartz Phillips. This was during a fundraiser backstage at Jasper Community Arts Center, during which we raised money for a very close cause of ours: Paul Michael Ash Endowment for Music and the Arts.
