‘The Tale’ is a story about a retired and burnt out musician that finds himself back in the norm. he slowly fades back into life and reminisces about his time on the road. It’s a sad fact that this will happen to possibly 99% of successful musicians on the planet. I’m no statistician, but that’s probably not a bad estimate. I hope you enjoy this acoustic laid back song.


The wanderer returned
with a gleam in his eyes
of things he’d seen
and passed him by
oh they passed him by
passed him by

The shadows seen
of one’s who’ve been
in topflight, fade into life
fade into life, oh they fade back into life
fade into life, into life

Well I know I’ve seen it before
my friend, my friend oh my friend
you know I’ve seen it before
my friend my friend
my friend my friend
passed him by

Thanks for everyone’s continues support for me and my music! It really is so appreciated!
Have a great week and stay safe folks

Darren Claxton is a Songwriter, Musician and Producer of his own music, from Derbyshire UK. The music he writes is often heartfelt acoustic indie folk with a sprinkling of rock and country influences, with an occasional world music flavour as heard on his track ‘Dragonfly’ . But most of all, it’s his passive emotive thoughts and feelings that are delivered through that soothing vocal, and intricate guitar playing of his.

Markdown is in limited flavors again. ##No Headings in Comments or Social posts but most Markdown will work when writing full blog articles again. It causes some serious lag so I will dig and see if we can resolve this.
