Leaving Goderich

I've been to the Goderich Celtic Roots festival a few times, and I've always left with a bittersweet "glad to have had the experiences, played with friends and looking forward to heading to home-sweet-home... but sad that I have to leave all of it behind for another year." This is a happy tune with one melancholy bar that also makes me really happy. Go figure!
