Competition Song Lyrics
on: November 20, 2017, 19:05:52
« Last Edit: November 20, 2017, 19:10:04 by Vince »
In America, we have Thanksgiving week(end) and it leads into Christmas. I'm going to be in Germany for most of the holiday - so I have little time to get my entry in.

Fortunately lightening did strike and I've got a travel song (or at least hope so). I wanted to a happy "On The Road Again" get away from the WAGS get a bus  tour (party) but that's just not me.

Here's what I got instead...

"The End Of My Road Blues"

Misty rain in the morning makes me old before my time,
Tired of the life Iím living, going to leave it all behind,
I was taught itís how you play the game,
Not if you win or lose,
Iím standing here, guitar in hand,
Feeling itís the end of my road blues.

There have been some angles along the way taking care of me,
Listening to the songs I play, singing harmony,
But now Iím all alone, itís not what I would choose,
Standing here, guitar in hand,
Feeling itís the end of my road blues

I was strong in the beginning,
Doing what I wanted to do,
I know itís too late now to start missing you,

This misty rain just has a way of slowly killing me,
But in my demise, will I finally be set free?
Or should I pick another road? It seems itís time to choose,
Standing here, guitar in hand,
Feeling itís the end of my road blues

The question is does it qualify as a travel song?  Lightening did strike twice and I have a second song - but it's a jazz type thing inspired by the conversations between @Jim and @Bill from November Sound  so it will require more work than the holidays allow for.

Best to all,

Vince

Travelling? Well not physically - but definitely travelling on the journey of life and lots of concrete references to that journey. So yes, it would qualify for me with this thought provoking lyric sheet!
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!

Hey, Vince.....I definitely see this as a traveling song....traveling down the road of life.

I really like these blues lyrics........they have a classic feel to them. i say go for it.
"The main thing is to have a gutsy approach....but use your head." Julia Child

 "In a world of robotic conformity, the only originality left in music is the imperfections" Eric Craptone

"Special thanks to Steve Gleason for making me who I am today." Leonard Scaper

Yeah I'd say this qualifies as a travelling song for the reasons the guys say...they're great lyrics Vince!  ;D

I wondered if you could have a bridge (or is there one already?) where you could mention "final journey", or something...maybe just a BV line?  ;) 

But yeah, this looks good.  :D

Thanks @MichaelA  and @Leonard Scaper @Jim   then it looks like I have a horse in this race (I wish I had your recording skills, but I will do the best I can do)

I've messed with the bridge @Jim  (or I think it's a bridge)

I was strong at the start,
Doing what I wanted to do,
But I grow weary in my heart,
But it's too late to be missing you,

Anyway, thanks again.

Vince

It has enough references to traveling to me! ( of course I'm not the judge....) Nice lyrics! Looking forward to hearing your song!
