I made this connection a couple weeks ago while reading through Nights of Passed Over.
Lyrics to Truck Driver:
I was probably 5 at their home in Navarre
my cousin's friend was in the yard playin' guitar
we all gathered round listened to her play and sing
and I fell into a trance and knew that I one day I'd do the same thing.
Nights of Passed Over:
"Golden is a tribute to John Denver, and was written during a power outage in a Mendocino recording studio shortly after he died in a 1997 airplane accident. Growing up, I never listened to his music more or less than my other favorite songwriters. But he is a unique influence, as I started taking guitar lessons after watching a girl strum an acoustic guitar through one of his songs on a relative's lawn. I was probably nine or ten.
Though he says a different age, do you think this could be about the same instance? I'm fairly certain.
