Probably also do "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right"  - "I once loved a woman, a child I'm told."    Also "Goodbye's too good a word, gal, so I'll just say fare-thee-well."

Re: SUGGESTIONS: JULY 2022 FSOTM – DOOR, CHILD, GOODBYE, RAIN, LOVE.

"To her door" by Paul Kelly; I think it mentions all of the 5 words ...

To her door

She took both the kid's

(children)

She said "I'm not standing by, To watch you slowly die

(goodbye)

In the pouring rain

Love isn't directly mentioned, but it's an underlying theme ...

Cheers

OK  it's not July  but here goes.
(I am also posting this under songwriting - I hope that's ok??)

The Door  (Mama’s song) by Jim Kenyon


SOTM entry   I used all the words !   smile


A song about how my mom inspired all 10 of her children.




.






Verse 1


[G]She carried the weight of the[C] world upon her [G]shoulders


Though I don’t recall that I [C] ever saw her[G] cry


Oh she[C] had a way to make the broken look [G]beautiful


oh she could [D] lift your spirits right [C]up into the[G] sky




.






Chorus


She’d say it’s [C]funny that neither side of a [G]door


can [C]know just what’s waiting on the other [G] side


but a [C]door can make what was, into what will [G]be


so [D]child, step out in the [C] world and take that [G]ride


.




yeah...


she’d say [C] leave your burdens and fears all behind [G] you


and [C] have the courage to walk right out that [G] door


ya' need to [C] spread your wings and learn how to [G] fly


and let [D] love take you where you’ve[C] never gone be[G]fore





.




. Verse 2


[G] well ya’ know our family never [C]had the best of [G]anything


but we made the best of [C] everything that we [G]could


through the [C]rain and the pains, somehow she kept us [G]dreaming


that we could[D] be anything , she [C] always made us feel so [G]good


.






Chorus


She’d say it’s [C]funny that neither side of a [G]door


can [C]know just what’s waiting on the other [G] side


but a [C]door can make what was, into what will [G]be


so [D]child, step out in the world and take that [G]ride


.




yeah...


she’d say [C] leave your burdens and fears all behind [G] you


and [C] have the courage to walk right out that [G] door


ya' need to [C] spread your wings and learn how to [G] fly


and let [D] love take you where you’ve[C] never gone be[G]fore






and let [D] love take you where you’ve[C] never gone be[G]fore


and let [D] love take you where you’ve[C] never gone be[G]fore


Your vision is not limited by what your eye can see, but what your mind can imagine.
Make your life count, and the world will be a better place because you tried.

Thanks neo, yep reckon that fits the categories, I will have to go find it and have a listen.

TIGLJK, awesome, you have nailed it with this song (covers all the categories too) but I really like the song as well.  I will definitely give it ago, hopefully I  can come up with something.
