Topic: Recording- It takes two

Well I finally got an hour of free time this morning so I thought I would record my song to post - one thing led to another - and I ended up adding a verse.

My recording of this pales compared to Jan's - she has such a magnificent voice.

I apologize for my singing and playing - it's really hard for me to play and sing at the same time - not being a musician.

any way here it is -

It Takes Two by Jim Kenyon


[G] One step begins each [Am]journey


One [Bm] breath begins every [Am] life


One [G] word starts every [Am ]prayer, and it


[Bm]takes one[Am] touch, to [C]show you [G]care




Verse 2




[G]One seed begins every [Am] garden


One [Bm]raindrop brings every [Am]storm


A [G]leap of faith takes you [Am]higher, and it


[Bm] takes one[Am] spark to [C]start a [G]fire




Chorus




But it [C]takes two to [G]tango


And it [C]takes two to be best[G] friends


It [C]takes two hearts to [G]beat as one


to have a [Am]love that will [C]never [G] end




and there [C]ain’t no night with[G]out a dawn


and [C] winter’s always followed by the [G] spring


But there’s [C] no life for me with[G]out you Babe


'cause [Am]Darling, you [C] are my every[G]thing


.


verse 3


.




[G]a single whisper can start any [Am]story


another [Bm]chance can bring new [Am]life



one[G] verse gives rise to every [Am] poem.and


a [BM] memory can [Am] always [C] take you [G]home




.


.Chorus




.


But it [C]takes two to [G]tango


And it [C]takes two to be best[G] friends


It [C]takes two hearts to [G]beat as one


to have a [Am]love that will [C]never [G] end




and there [C]ain’t no night with[G]out a dawn


and [C] winter’s always followed by the [G] spring


But there’s [C] no life for me with[G]out you Babe


'cause [Am]Darling, you [C] are my every[G]thing




yea it [C]takes two to [G]tango


And it [C]takes two to be best[G] friends


It [C]takes two hearts to [G]beat as one


to have a [Am]love that will [C]never [G] end


.




It [C]takes two hearts to [G]beat as one


to have a [Am]love that will [C]never [G] end


It [C]takes two hearts to [G]beat as one


to have a [Am]love that will [C]never [G] end

Re: Recording- It takes two

Jim this is gorgeous. Nice words and your singing is great too. I do not think either could be better.

Music is what feelings sound like.
Music is life, that why our hearts have beats.

Re: Recording- It takes two

Excellent lyrics good to hear you doing this song in your Bob Dylan way. I love the way many people perform  your songs, like Phill and Jan  who do it  by delving into your lyrics and rewriting their essence through performance.
