As I said, we were in our "song writing phase" and we did send this to Nashville. Heck, we sent them everywhere. When we heard Garth Brooks song
come out on the radio, we were LIVID! Of course we were "kids" and from the boonies....and thought Garth Brooks was the greatest thing that ever
lived....so we decided it must have been a "frame of mind" at the time, then we started thinking we had some kind of psychic ability
We never found out what the actual truth was and the years went by. But still, in the backs of our minds, we have that little bit of uncertaintity
that wanders back to those days... It's something we can share with kids and grandkids and let them decide for themselves... we DO still have the
"poor man's copyright" where we mailed a copy of the song to ourselves to get the postmark on the envelope without ever opening the envelope. We
thought we knew everything and that doing that would "protect our work"
It was actually compounded by a story our mother used to tell us about a song she wrote, sent off, then heard one very, very, VERY much like it on the
radio. Something about Paw-paws, I don't remember the details of hers but I did learn the same feeling she had after this one....
