SAGO
Words and music by Dave Preston
Background vocals by Anne Cozean and Marty Ross Vining

Dave: The seed for this song came in early January in the aftermath of the Sago Coal Mine disaster in Tallmansville, West Virginia. I had read where some of the miners had written notes as they lay trapped two miles deep inside the mine. One note read, ďTell all I see them on the other side. It wasnít bad. I just went to sleep.Ē A melody line began running through my head shortly after, and by mid-February I had to try to get something down on paper. I tried to record the song with my own back up harmonies but it just didn't sound right. I asked Anne Cozean and Marty Ross Vining to add their beautiful voices to the mix.

This song is dedicated to the families of the miners that lost their lives in Tallmansville and everywhere.

Dave did a fine job of imagining and then entering into the experience of those miners. Simple melody and simple but relentless guitar with your haunting refrain.
