Seeing as I didnt get time to do the summer assignment I though I would combine that topic with this weeks one, thats my excuse anyway. The overall theme is still "no turning back"

Dont Cry My Heart
Copyright 2006 Paul Brady

V1
Its summertime somewhere
But it's winter in my heart
And though the sun is shining
It's cold cos we're apart

V2
And summers heat can't compare
With the flash within her eyes
From the fire of bridges burning
As we said our last goodbyes

Chorus
Don't cry my heart
Don't cry my heart
There's no going back
It's just a new start
Don't cry my heart
Don't cry my heart
No need for despair
It's just a new start

V3
Though winters chill still has a hold
Of this heart in disarray
I look toward a better time
And trust that spring is on its way

Chorus
Don't cry my heart
Don't cry my heart
There's no going back
It's just a new start
Don't cry my heart
Don't cry my heart
No need for despair
It's just a new start

Hi Pbee ( U . P ) have a guess what that might mean :lol: :lol: :lol:

I like this a lot , the second verse is very very good ( love it )

I was a bit disappointed with the chorus at first to be honest with you , But after reading it a couple of times it really does fit into the song almost like a bridge / chorus both rolled into one ( am I close there ) :?: :?:

I am thinking finger picking sort of music :lol: :lol:

What style of music do you have in mind :?:

Take care

Hilch :?:

Here is to you as good as you are
And here is to me as bad as I am
As good as you are and as bad as I am
I'm as good as you are as bad as I am

Hi hilch,
right on the money (your getting good at this). And yes again the chorus has a different flavour to the verses.Its a very bluesy song. The chorus is witten for the harmonica to be wailing in the background. I just have to learn how to play it now. If you want to know what the chorus sounds like put a capo on the 2nd fret and just play a Dm, fretted stings only, then slide the chord up 2 more frets ( 1,2,3-slide-4 5,6,7 8 ) then back down 2 frets for the the next line. Lines 4 & 8 are D//// C D.

Cheers

U P :wink:

hey that sounds kool ( is it still hip to say kool )

I got muddled up a bit with the slideing but sort of got the sound ( I think you mean )

Here is to you as good as you are
And here is to me as bad as I am
As good as you are and as bad as I am
I'm as good as you are as bad as I am

Thanks guys,
Peter, to be honest I didnt even notice the with ..within repetition. Thanks for pointing it out. I think Ill leave it in there until I try to sing it and see what it sounds like.

that would be great Vic I'd appreciate that. Ive only got a D blues Harp so the I wrote the song in the key of A (not withstanding the rogue Em in the chorus). You might have to give me a little while to record the guitar cos Ive got a pretty full on weekend comming up. Ill PM you when Ive done it.

cheers

Paul

i like this a lot, pbee.
i have to agree with hilch on the chorus though. but i think the music will smoothen things out there alright.
