The Scene Changes ~ Perry Goes to Nashville 1965

In this song, Perry sings of what many young people are doing: living close to the earth, making their own homes, and earning their own way far from the madness of urban life. It's a contemporary concept, this yearning to be free and self-sufficient and at peace with the earth, and songwriters Sara Graham, Eddie Snyder, and Richard Ahlert have captured the feeling perfectly. Snyder, a pianist, wrote such pop hits as 'Talk to Me' and 'One More Mountain ( One More River )'. Richard Ahlert might have inherited his father's songwriting talent. He's the son of Fred E. Ahlert, composer of scores of hits, including 'Mean to Me', 'I'll Get By', and 'I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter.'
