GRIT

woke up this morning and my house was gone
my truck was swimming right across the lawn
called up my daddy "what's going on"
better move fast son been another storm
best not be crying i raised you strong
somehow someway we'll get along
and lord knows i don't need no shrink
all i need is a second to think
   
   cause i got grit, i got grit
   i don't talk pretty i'm full of it
   i got grit, i got grit
   you won't knock me down get used to it
   i got grit

woke up this morning and the sky was black
yelled up at god what the hell is that?
he said don't worry son i'm coming back
i said hurry up then cut me some slack
i won't cry i'm made strong
just like a little light with my dawn
you know i don't need no shrink
just need a second to think
   
   cause i got grit, i got grit
   i don't talk pretty but i'm full of it
   i got grit, i got grit
   you won't knock me down get used to it
   i got grit
   
lord says we both need a drink
i need a second to think
   
   cause i got grit, i got grit
   i don't talk pretty but i'm full of it
   i got grit, i got grit
   you won't knock me down so get used to it
   you won't knock me down get used to it
   i got grit

Grit is a hit!

Everything is spot on. The mix, backing tracks, guitar lead, vocals and harmonies.

Floyd, Janice and that Snyder guy has a hit on their hands.

Two thumbs up.

floyd, David, Janice

Heck of a vocal! and tight spot on harmonies. Immediately engaging and full of (well) Grit....
Top notch songwriting team - and a nice guitar solo from David.
Wonderful work all round. (Hope you guys have broken the back of the Hurricane clean up).

Floyd,
Wow, now that`s a lead vocal to part the waters!
Love the humour in the lyrics.
Super backtrack and harmonies and David`s guitar intro and solo
reminded me of Steven Stills at his best.
Marvellous collaboration.

Robert

Love it! Such a fun song, great write and performance by all involved.

Tip of the hat to David for his guitar work too (tele?)

Collaborations are the best, and you three rock!

Wow - you guys nailed this! It's perfectly catchy, and sounds professionally mixed. I wouldn't bat an eyelash hearing this on the radio beside other southern classics. Not to mention David killed it on the guitar!

Thanks so much for sharing smile

Hi there Floyd, David and Janice.

Yeah, great - I mean, what's not to like?

A fabulous groove going on, spot-on vocals, a HOT mix and fun story line.

I need to play that one loud in the car.

We receive user feedback many ways, including our Facebook page, by email or phone, using the Comments tab on our Band-in-a-Box® pages, the My Favorite Things Forum, and more!

Like the great feedback recently posted by Al-David:
"I write and play in quite a few different genres. The flexibility BIAB gives me makes transpositions, from one genre to another, so easy and quick. A number of times I've created a piece, intending it to be a Smooth Jazz or Smooth RnB song. But when I generated the song, it just didn't work in the intended genre.

With a simple click of the Style Picker ... BAM! The song ended up as a pretty decent Pop song. I only had to replace a couple of instruments from the new style and alter a couple of chords..."

Post your feedback to our Forum - My Favorite Things - we'd love to hear it!
