Joe Caruso

My cover of the first song I ever learned to finger pick many moons ago – Pussywillows Cattails. One of the many wonderful songs written by Gordon Lightfoot. I could not locate any background on this song, aside from one item – Lightfoot notes the inspiration for the song came from being around streams and wetlands when growing up in Orillia, Ontario. The song reminds me of days at my uncle’s farm when my cousin and I would go walking along the back concessions between the corn fields, bright blue clear sunny skies, cattails growing in the ditches, and nobody else around – we may have been the only 2 people on the planet.
