the road not taken : LUSENET : brucehornsby : One Thread

Anyone know the story behind "The Road Not Taken" from "Scenes from the Southside"?

I grew up near Richlands, the town that he speaks of in the song. The funny thing is my mother grew up just outside of Richlands in a long row of houses just below a strip mine.

I got to share that with Bruce at his Ashland, KY concert in 1999. Of course, he didn't have the time to share the story with me (I'm not sure he wanted to anyway). I'm just curious about the story behind the song.

Thanks for your help.
