RE; "STRONG TEA"

This song was posted once and deleted by mistake.

Strong Tea

by Brad McDougall

march 27/07

There[A] ain't nothing[A7] like a strong [D] cup of [F] tea,

[A]with a [A7] friend like [D] you.

[A]We'll sit and [A7] talk about the[D] days [F] events,

[A]And have a [A7] laugh or [D] two.    

[A]It's hard to [A7] make it [D] in this [F] life

[A]When your [A7] all [D] alone

[A]You need a good  [A7] friend you [D] know  [F]

[A]To help [A7] share the [D] load.


[C]And the tea we had [G] thru the [D] years

[C]Has helped to [G] quell our [D] fears

[C]As the bag [G] soaked up our [D] tears

[C]The laughter and the [G] memories are [D] clear


[A]Many [A7] times  you [D] helped me [F] out

[A]When [A7] I was [D] down

[A]You always [A7] been [D] there for [F] me

[A]You always[A7] been [D] around.

[A]Thru the [A7] years we [D] brewed the [F] tea

[A]And the stories [A7] that we [D] told

[A]Will keep us [A7] friends for[D] evermore [F]

[A]Will keep us [A7] going [D] strong.

Chorus

[A] And if you [A7] need a [D] helping [F] hand

[A]I'll be [A7] there for [D] you

[A] You helped me [A7] lots [D] thru the [F] years

[A]I will [A7] help you [D]  too.

[A]   [A7]   [D]   [F]   let F ring.... Thanks friend...........


The end.

A A7 C D F G
I do it with a slow to moderate strum,have fun.


....Badeye.

Re: RE; "STRONG TEA"

Badeye ,
   Thanks , I love this song .
Right off , it makes me think of some of my best friends over the years .  I think one of the most important things a song writer learns , is how to make the listener identify
with the lyrics . Great job......

Re: RE; "STRONG TEA"

i love it, badeye! smile as usual, i managed to imagine how it goes in my head, and if i'm correct it sounds very catchy, well done.
i don't like it as much as your name, Brad McDougall, i'm afraid, that is just AWESOME lol i'm very jealous!

you gotta be who you be if you're comin' with me

Hi Badeye,

I do vaguely remember this one from the previous posting and although I do not like tea I enjoyed the song.

Re: RE; "STRONG TEA"

nice song badeye we dont drink a whole lot of tea on this side of the pond but sitting down over a cup of coffee or tea in this case, and reflecting in the quiet moments together is important and your lyrics relate this good job smile

Re: RE; "STRONG TEA"

Hi Old doll, I LOVE apple pie, I'm off to the travel agent to get a plane ticket, ps, keep the calories in the cream, after all, their is a limit to how healthy we need to be. I think this new tea drinkers blue page layout is quite cool.
pps - can't you send us some of your rain, we are melting over here, with terrible fires raging all over
ppps - after reading your post I wrote a poem/song about tea, but it is still in my longhand scrawl - not yet typed up.

Re: RE; "STRONG TEA"

hi badeye,

i like to see where people are from, so i googled up cape breton island, and it says your in canada on our side! looks like a lot of trees and snow...hey buvvy that'll cool your fires down!!!!

back to the song, very warm lyrics and i hope the person you wrote them about appreciates your work!

i'm quite partial to tea my-self, as coffee makes my heart do funny things and i end up in hospital! as i did 2 years ago when i was in mandurah near perth in the land of oz.
there is also a song by paul mccartney called "english tea"

phill

ps. and i've gone all blue too...must be the cold!

Guilty as charged. Badeye had put a '[' bracket before soc instead of '{' and this had altered the formatting of every post in this thread.

Badeye. Since my last reply to this I have found that I do like green tea but still not the ordinary stuff with milk and sugar - still like the song though lol

Re: RE; "STRONG TEA"

Ah the mystery is out and honesty is the best policy. Kinda liked the blue tho. I know this song was posted before but self-promotion is not all bad. If you look at the chords they are
the same as the tune "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" I just changed the melody a bit which
is ok to do I think. Thanks for the feedback...

cool   Badeye.
