seeing Peter Rowan at Rocky Grass (Lyons, CO) brought this song back to mind -
The Story Behind Doc Watson Morning


DOC WATSON MORNING
Written by Peter Rowan and Jerry Faires
As recorded by Peter Rowan & Bryan Sutton on Peter Rowan's album "The Old School" (2013)

Well it rained all night in Frisco; now the clouds have rolled away.
The city lights are glistening out across the bay.
I pick up my old guitar and I start to play
'Cause it's a Doc Watson mornin' D-18 guitar pickin' kinda day.

Now Doc's real name was Arthel and he played the electrical guitar.
The beauty of his melodies were known both near and far.
Somewhere in the '60s Doc had found a D-18
Started pickin' them homespun tunes, clear water from a mountain stream.
I pick up my old guitar and I start to play
'Cause it's a Doc Watson mornin' D-18 guitar pickin' kinda day.

Now Doc he played the Tennessee Stud and the Black Mountain Blues.
He left us a legacy for me and for you.
The sweetest song I heard him sing was with Miss Rosalee:
Oh my darlin', my darlin', my heart breaks as you take your long journey.

Now Doc and Willard, Tom and Gaither, Annie and General D
Sure made a lot of music up there, that Watson Family.
Let's pick up our guitars now; come on, what ya got to lose?
Ain't it time we finally learn to play the "Deep River Blues"?

In Deep Gap, North Carolina, some folks up there might say:
Yes, it's a Doc Watson mornin' guitar pickin'--
It's a Doc Watson mornin' D-18 guitar pickin'--
It's a Doc Watson mornin' D-18 guitar pickin' kinda day.
