“Earlier this year, Kim was doing a tour down thru Nashville and

called me one morning, so I abandoned my housework and we met

at a coffee shop to catch up and say hello.  She was urging that her time

was really needing to be spent writing.. so seated at our table by the

21st street window sipping hot tea and coffee, I said  “You give me the first line

and we'll take turns”.  She said "His boots broke down back in 56" ..

...................................

Sharon and Whitehorse songster  Kim Beggs  team up

to write this story song; a whimsical return to a time past

and a mother has to let loose the apron strings at harvest time,

to watch a gypsy hearted son turn to the life of a hobo. 

Indeed a seed does sometimes sprout into the sky;

pulled up from the roots by a whislin train.   

Welcome to Long Gone Free.

Sharon Anderson has teamed up with Kim Beggs; Whitehorse songstress extraordinaire, to bring you “Long Gone Free”; the second single off the “Life and Times” album.  You can read about it here:

The Life and Times album is just that; the life of a young western Canadian  prairie girl becoming old within the dedicated lifestyle of a wandering minstrel, and the times that best defined that quest.  Her love of this life that is her legacy is apparent in this story of the freedom that secretly dwells in all our hearts—the story of Long Gone Free
