South of Chicago
on: October 16, 2019, 01:00:31
I was listening to Irene Kelly, and Emmy Lou Harris and I just love that kind of music, that style...
thought I`d try a song, in that simple style. Its rough and only runs about 2mins, so it might not bore you all.

if you listen thanks ahead of time.







When she left me my whole world
came tumbling down

For the longest time I never thought
I would catch my breath...
and the heartache I just knew would never end.

Here I am
south of chicago ..headed west.
==================

=====
For the life of me
I never thought one and one made three

some where far from here I`ll look back
through a memory...And tomorrow I can`t tell you
how its going to end.

" here I am
south of chicago ..headed west.

bridge:
I`ll catch the sun.. and I wont be back
they broke the chains ...but not the man..
he is gone...
===========

For the life of me
I never thought one and one made three

somewhere far from here I`ll look back
remembering.....And tomorrow you
should never second guess...

" here I am
south of chicago ..headed west.

south of chicago ..headed west.

Man, I LOVE how you write @Lane .....you tell a story in a way that makes it universal. And it is SO good to hear you singing. I know I have said this before but these songs would not be the same without your trademark lonesome vocals.

When you take the song up a step toward the end it really works....grabbed me hard. Great move there.

.......perfect length too......I definitely was not bored.  ;)

Hi @Lane

Nice song, nice classic. I think the lyrics and the style fit perfectly, with a calm  that feels good to hear it.
(I was surprised by the change in tone at 1:20 approx.)
and I love how you sing "Here I am
south of Chicago ..headed west."

I like a lot the title too
I did not know that to live I had to die so many times

I like this lonesome style too @Lane - your voice as nicely broken as the story (meant as a compliment- a smooth voice wouldn`t carry the feeling the same!).  The "headed west"phrase  comes with so many images for most listeners only a little detail is needed-yours got me right away.

I'm a little on the North - side of Chicago moving east so I just had to comment @Lane . This is a very moving song, and well done.

@Leonard Scaper  @Mora Amaro La Loba   @Dutchbeat   @robertkc

thanks to everyone of you, and I think you give me to much credit..I know at sometime
I`ll go at this again and try to improve the singing, timing. and just the general delivery.
If the song turns out well, I have a real singer go at it..
 thanks for taking time to listen and comment.

Well....I'll be listening for any other versions of this fine tune. But I need to say with all sincerity that your voice....dripping with authenticity.....is just right.

@Lane A very traditional type of tune and lyric indeed, and very well done at that. I think I'd crank up the vocal just a tad, but having said that, it is a fine piece of work indeed, I agree with the others.

This is unbelievable - wow! I love how you write and sound. The guitar is so fresh and your voice has a distant quality to it that draws the listener in. So lovely, thank you for sharing  ::thumb::
