Bobby stopped at the traffic lights before he spoke again. “Will you come with me; I would like her to meet you.’

“I will if you really want me to but I think this time you should go alone.’

“Yes you’re right.’

“I will go tomorrow.’

“The lights changed to green and Bobby felt a whole lot better; he drove past the shops then turned right into Martine’s Street.

When he stopped the car Martine let herself out she opened the gate as Bobby locked the car.

“Forgotten something haven’t you?’


“Your guitar you’re not getting out of serenading me Bobby Wray.’

Bobby laughed then went to the boot of his car.’

He returned with the hard case to keep the guitar in.’

“Tea or coffee shouted Martine from the kitchen as she filled the electric kettle.’

“Tea please.’

Bobby took out the Gibson from its case and began to tune it in. then he broke into a song by Tim McGraw called “Everywhere”


We were born in this little town

Growing up I was counting down

Every single day till we made our getaway

But you said you could never see yourself

Trying to make a life anywhere else

This would be your home and I was on my own

But ever since you said goodbye

I’ve been out here on the wind

Baby you would be surprised

All the places you have been

I’ve seen you in


Albuquerque waitin’ out a blizzard

Arizona dancin’ cross the dessert

Watchin‘ the sun in Monterey

Girl I swear just the other day you were

Down in Georgia picking them peaches

In Carolina, barefoot on the beaches

No matter where you choose to be

In my heart I will always see you



Now the days

When I’m passing through

The conversation always turns to you

I hear your doin’ fine

Livin’ out on the county line

Got a man that’s home every night

A couple of kids and a kind of life

That you want to lead

Guess you could say the same for me
