The Pressley Girls – CD photo shoot 2017

It seems like it was only yesterday that I was stirring around the house and heard the catchiest tune coming from Chatter’s room. I knocked on her door and said “I like that where’d you learn it?” She sheepishly looked at me and said “I wrote it.” I said “WHAT!!!??? You wrote that? I LOVE IT!”

A good three years later, I’m still loving the song and the girls have chosen it for the title track of their very first cd!!!

When it Ends in a Walk written by C. Pressley

Our days were numbered and they were few
But it felt like the start of something new
You had to leave and go back home
But it left me here wondering to roam

Sometimes love happens fast
And its hard to make it last
And its easy to laugh and its easy to talk
But its hard when it ends in a walk

Talking about life with you made me feel understood
And I would trade everything for another day if I could
Its funny how love can be even when its going to end
You still follow it through the dark and around the bend

Sometimes love happens fast
And its hard to make it last
And its easy to laugh and its easy to talk
But its hard when it ends in a walk

As you walked me to the end of the road to say goodbye
All of our adventures flashed before my eyes
But it was worth it every time
Because the memories we made will forever be mine

Sometimes love happens fast
And its hard to make it last
And its easy to laugh and its easy to talk
But its hard when it ends in a walk

It’s hard when it ends when it ends in a walk


I can barely wait for everyone to hear the cd! I’m going to let you have a sneak listen today. Here’s the title track When it Ends in a Walk.

I hope you enjoyed the sneak listen. You can pick up your own copy of the cd here: The Pressley Girls – When it Ends in a Walk.

    Thanks for that peppie tune on Chitter and Chatter’s new CD that’s about to be released. I just hope “My Heart’s in Brasstown” is on their CD, cause that’s my favorite. I have followed the girls from the beginning and I can just imagine the Pride of family members. Pap would be so Proud, and Louzine, and you can tell Miss Cindy is Proud of ’em in almost every comment. Paul is the best picker I ever heard, and it shows in this one. Steve and his wife, Ben and his brother Mark, April (the third Indian Princess, and one of the prettiest girls I’ve ever seen) are all proud of Chitter and Chatter too. Can’t wait for it’s release! …Ken

    OMG! That’s wonderful! I know what I’ll be giving for Christmas gifts this year. Chatter’s song is VERY good. The girls are so very talented in so many different arenas, it’s amazing.
    You know, Tip, in my heart I still see them as little girls…and they are not!
    They certainly make a grandmother proud!
