Commented lead vampire, Jyrki69, “Elvis, Johnny Cash and Lee Hazlewood were sitting by the fire in the sunset desert as I rode there with my white Apache horse. I got down and joined them to hear their stories. Lee handled me a half bottle of Jack Daniels as they start a song…This is a very intimate, gentle song. There’s nobody else than me and the listener in this cold world as I sing this one for YOU. Can you feel the warmth of that fire?”
