been while folks Ya'll know how life is. Any way finally wrote something new i wanted to run by you and get some opinions i have my own thoughts about it and how the story kind of changes. a work in progress no name yet. i may get a recording of it up today if not probably Thursday cheers hope you enjoy

capo second fret

D                             G
Don't know why came this way
not sure how long I'm gonna stay
D                              A
been awhile since i was here
Em                                    G        D
and held you close and oh so near

D                            G
thought my life was on the road
i tell you know I just don't know
D                           A
wild and free and always gone
Em                                  G                D
I had no time for your lonesome song

chorus

G            D                            A
but you always keep me coming back
even though I lose my way
there's just something about you
Em                 G            D
I can't seem to stay away

home is where I lay my head
not where I was born and bred
it may be a motel room
or it might be my final tomb

you're going to make it hard to leave
you changed some things that I believe
that old road an unforgiving place
steer you wrong and make you fall from grace

chorus

now I'm leaving one last time
one last mountain left to climb
just one more rendezvous
and I'll be coming home to you

so, say a little prayer for me
sweet and low that I might see
underneath that cottonwood
I'll be coming home for good

chorus

Hi Jandl, I second that emotion. Welcome back, it would be good to have you keep those other kiwi's in order.

Shreveport is closest but  Dallas would be good ya,ll drive down together plenty room here at the house , 2 great lakes 20 minutes from the house. or i have a camper we take to Sam Rayburn either way be fun

Zurf wrote:

If I wanted to get there, it's looking like the easiest way would be to fly to Shreveport and then drive over.  Is that right? Or have you got a closer airport? 

I think BGD is around Dallas/Fort Worth. Maybe it would be easier to fly to him and we'd drive down together. This is cool. We're going to have to think about it.

Have you got space to put us up, or are we going to need to rent a cabin or an AirBnB (this is not a trick question)?

I'm heading to Florida in March some time to pick guitars and hassle fish, so another trip isn't likely this year, but if it is, it would likely be the fall. Is that a good time?

Thanks. BaldGuitarDude is down in Texas and a fisherman too. He's not active here, but he was a member and I'm still in touch with him (he's gotten to be one of my best buddies, actually). We ought to try to make this a thing. I think we'd all enjoy ourselves. You could challenge us with a couple of your songs printed out and we'd each give it a go without having actually heard the song before. Then you could show us how it's done. It would be a blast.     

That you're both in Texas is kind of like saying you both live in Spain (Spain is actually smaller than Texas in terms of square miles), and so it must be easy, but you know. There's planes and stuff.

thats awesome,  ive been retarded ( thats the past tense of retired so the wife says) for two years now.  thats some good advice from Phill, ask me how i know. dear old dad is not working anymore he can watch the kids a couple of days. babysitting gets in the way of doing nothing that day.  any way enjoy the new life.     

now them some true words , it takes a lot to love a good woman but nothing to let her go

Good photos Jim and Graham I have never been able to figure out how to post photos on chordie modern tech is beyond me.. smile

     

I dont know sounds ok to me i ran through it a few times trying different things only thing i came up with , and not saying its better just different i,ll let ya,ll judge that

he should have left love to someone who would put down some roots
and sit with me by the fireplace at night and kick off his boots




TIGLJK wrote:

I further edited this duet changed a few words and chords.

But sorry Phill - I only made a minor  change in that line
It is definitely written as a country song and I think it fits.
Maybe our Texas friend Mojo can give some input as to that line.

Thanks for checking it out .


Jim
