This touching song is about her neighbors, Roland and Ethel. They are (or were, they have both since died) an old couple who befriended Cheryl. By the time you finish listening to this song, you feel like you want to meet them.

This song can still bring tears to my eyes when I listen to it. Here is a live version from YouTube.

Cheryl mentioned once that she was talking to Kenny White (a piano player who appears on many of Cheryl's albums, and often appears with her when they are in the same area). She told him that she sort of ripped him off on this song. Her finger picking was her attempt to cop one of Kenny's piano licks. Kenny laughed and told her that the lick was his attempt to cop her finger picking lick. That was a joke :^)
