We moved from Boise, Idaho when I had just finished up second grade. I was 8 years old. Up until that point, I had had all my birthdays in the same house. On the drive to Oregon, as we were going down the switchbacks of Cabbage Hill, this song came on the radio. It's the first song in my memory that is linked to an emotion. As I was listening to it today, all the worry and sadness and uncertainty of moving to a new 'land' hit home. I wasn't very brave as an 8 year old, especially during the introduction. It tears me up but I still love this song.
