Y14_W12 I'm Awaitin'

Post by LingDar » January 19th, 2016, 4:04 pm

This is my first blues song so I had to learn how to do the 12 bar blues. I'm not sure how much I like the restriction of the format. The set format is both useful but also somewhat confining.

This is also my first song where I did not write out a melody and just used the rhythm and sang over it however I felt like it worked.

Here is the Soundcloud link https://soundcloud.com/asylum-of-truth/im-awaitin

Here are the words

I’m a waiting, Just awaiting, Ever so long, For my Love
I’m a waiting, Just awaiting, Ever so long, For my Love
She told me, She’ll be here
She’s a coming, From above

I a swear ,I ain’t been here, all that long, officer
I a swear ,I ain’t been here, all that long, officer
I can’t a move, not one inch
Cause I’m awaitin’, for my love sir

I’m a waiting, Just awaiting, Ever so long, For my Love
I’m a waiting, Just awaiting, Ever so long, For my Love
She told me, She’ll be here
She’s a coming, From above

No I ain’t, all that cold, not when she’ll, be so here soon
No I ain’t, all that cold, not when she’ll, be so here soon
I’ll be plenty warm, when I’m in her arms
When we’re close, under the moon

I’m a waiting, Just awaiting, Ever so long, For my Love
I’m a waiting, Just awaiting, Ever so long, For my Love
She told me, She’ll be here
She’s a coming, From above
