David Mallett (formerly referred to as “Dave”) is a hugely talented singer/songwriter from Maine. He wrote “The Garden Song” (“Inch by inch, row by row”) that’s been recorded by so many folks (Pete Seeger, Arlo, PP&M, etc.). One of my favorites of his is “I know this place” which has the opening lines

“I know this place, I know it well,

Every sound and every smell,

And every time I walked I fell,

The first two years or so.”
